Loofball an important youth sport

The Executive Director of Loofball Sport Development Initiative, Mr. Winner Vidiyeno Matahula has underscored the benefits of sport, especially loofball, to young people. He did so, while deliberating with the management team on a strategic roadmap for the development of loofball during a recent meeting in Abuja.

Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Matahula said the growing interest of loofball among the youth makes it part of the education system that is important to the well being of all young people.

“Sport like education is very important to the growth of young people. It is essential for children and young people to exercise to keep fit and enjoy healthy growth and development. Going by the number and demographics of participants in loofball, I think it's fair to say that it's a perfect youth sport, reason behind our approach (to sports development) being centered around the school system” he said.

"Sport is more than just a physical activity. Sport provides many developmental benefits including psychological, physical or health benefits. The youth-friendly nature of loofball is no doubt an opportunity waiting to be explored by government, sport organizations and indeed all lovers of youth sport." Mr. Matahula added.

Loofball Sport Development Initiative is the only organization established solely for the promotion and development of loofball in Nigeria and beyond.
