From the Desk of the Chairman
Dear JPSFA family
I hope everyone is well and in good health. 2021 was by no means an easy year and I would like to offer our sincere condolences to the schools and their staff who have lost loved ones through this unprecedented pandemic.
On the football front we are sad to report that another season was lost and that our boys and girls had not had the opportunity to build lifelong friendships through this beautiful game.
Exciting times lie ahead of us, and we can’t wait to see our learners back on the field of play again. As teachers, coaches, and caregivers we have to ask ourselves the question; where do we start to create an environment to ensure and to encourage our learners to be healthier?
Thanks to the support of our partners, JPSFA will assist you to restart the process after two years of silence on the school football fields. The JPSFA committee is hard at work to ensure that weekday and knock out cup fixtures are compiled and that the Discovery trials and festival are organised.
Communication regarding our coaches and referee courses will also be sent to schools in the next few weeks. We are aiming to get the digital booklets with all the rules and fixtures to schools by 5 March, for schools to have sufficient time to apply for transport at their various District offices.
Forwardzone and Discovery health must be applauded for their unfaltering support through these difficult times. Your continued support is greatly appreciated and is not going unnoticed.
I wish all schools a successful 2022 and we believe that football will play an integral part of the year and the memories learners will make in 2022.
Yours in football
