Torneos Nacionales de El Salvador

By Johamy Alabi

In May, we had a table tennis skills tournament at the premises of the National Federation of Table Tennis with the coaches of the new Young Athlete Program whose workouts are held every Thursday. Among the institutions that participated include: EEA Santa Tecla E.E.E. La Union, San Salvador Sub Program and several other institutions and foundations. Reaching an attendance of more than 40 people, including athletes, coaches, volunteers and family, the purpose of the tournament is to encourage and motivate our athletes to promote health, discipline and a comprehensive approach to training. Likewise, the Special Olympics Young Athletes program focuses on early stimulation of children with intellectual disabilities from ages 2 to 7 years old, encouraging fine and gross motor skills needed to participate in sports.
