Development plan re-starts korfball in Dominican Republic
The office of the Vice-President and the Sports Ministry of Dominican Republic together develop a new campaign to re-start korfball in Dominican Republic. This plan tries to bring korfball into the regular education of a number of sports students in the Instituto Superior de Formación Docente Salomé Ureña (ISFODOSU) located in the two main cities in the country: Santo Domingo, the capital, and Santiago de los Caballeros. Later the program launches the practice of korfball in schools in both cities through the support of the sport teachers as guides and trainers for the teams.
This plan supports the re-start of korfball in the country some years after its introduction. The program is conducted by IKF Director of Development and Education, Mr Albert Vidanya, and IKF instructor, Mr Dani Ezpeleta. The program started 16 March 2015 in Santiago de los Caballeros after some words from Mr Jaime David Fernández Mirabal, Sports Minister, Mr Franco Ventura, vice rector of ISFODOSU, and Mrs Anniete Cohn-Lois, responsible for Gender in the Vice-President Office.
Activities will run two weeks, and will finish with the final happening programmed for the Friday 27 March with the two groups of ISFODOSU from Santiago de los Caballeros and Santo Domingo. They play and exhibition the game of korfball in the sports center of the capital, with the presence of several schools, the authorities and responsible of the project.
