A former assistant coach of the Super Falcons, Joy Etim on Sunday appealed to parents to support their female wards who were talented footballers and intended to build their careers in the sport.

Etim in Lagos said that such encouragement would go a long way to make the children stars in future.

According to her, parents should help their wards to develop their sports talents rather than discourage them.

“Many of these children have the capability to fulfill their life dreams if not for the negative attitude of some parents to them.

“Gone are the days when we considered sports as business for those who could not make it academically; it is a lucrative adventure nowadays, even for the scholars.

“Parents are therefore enjoined to encourage their children to participate in football games because by so doing, they will be better positioned to put in their best,” she said.

Etim, also a board member of Amalgamation of Nigeria Female Football Club Coaches, which is affiliated to Nigeria Football Association, urged parents to create time to watch their wards play on the field.

“We have grassroots competitions here in Lagos and we expect parents to take advantage of such programmes to witness their performance and probably make observations,” she said.

She said that the body of coaches was ready to support existing and upcoming players to achieve their dreams without missing out academically.

“We are aware that some of these players are young and are still in school, so we take care of them and organise training schedules that would not let their academics suffer,” she said.

Etim advised the young players to be disciplined, focused and determined in order to be successful in their sporting and academic careers.
