A sports forum featuring some of Bermuda’s top former athletes will be held next month.

Shaun Goater, the former Manchester City forward, Olympic diver Katura Horton-Perinchief, Olympic triple jumper Brian Wellman and Sullivan Phillips, a former professional basketball player, will be among the special guests who will headline the Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation’s Sports Conference from September 6 to 8 at the Bermuda College.

The conference is entitled “Reimaging Sports” and its aim is to provide an opportunity for Bermuda’s sports stakeholders to gain knowledge and enhance their role within sports.

“We believe this will be an exciting conference which will offer a number of opportunities for us to understand and appreciate the importance of sports in our community,” Lovitta Foggo, the Minister of Labour, Community Affairs and Sport, said.

“Some of Bermuda’s most accomplished athletes have lent their time to participate in this event and we are offering a wide range of informative workshops.

“We will focus on a number of aspects relating to sports in Bermuda such as coaching, long-term athlete development, athlete recovery, competition restructuring and various seminars specifically aimed at parents of young established or developing athletes.”

Minister Foggo continued, “Overall our conversations during this conference will revolve around the role of sports in Bermuda, where it once was, how sports is currently viewed in our community and what needs to be done to develop it further. So, we very much look forward to welcoming interested individuals to this upcoming conference so that they can share in this important discussion.”

The deadline for registration is Wednesday, September 4. The registration fee for each workshop is $25. To register visit www.gov.bm and fill out the form provided. For more information contact Jekon Edness at jaedness@gov.bm
