The president of GFDA, Mr Desmond Mantey told the various regional association chairpersons that the event is to enhance the technical knowledge of the regional coaches in the sport.

 He noted that the introduction of the game in Ghana will promote youth and girls’ development in diverse ways and charged regional heads to put in the effort to ensure that the game gets to the grassroots.

 “The disc sports games has the potential to nurture elite athletes capable of winning laurels for themselves and mother Ghana and as such serious efforts must be attached to the project, he stated.
