BELVEDERE, St. Maarten - Training Professionals International Firm (TPI) attended, The St. Maarten Hockey Club (SMHC) Clinic on Saturday from 3:00 to 4.30pm at the Cruijff Court in Belvedere. The clinic was unique conducted by, ex Dutch National Hockey Team players and Olympic Gold medalists Kim Lammers and Sophie Polkamp.
TPI’s President & CEO, Dr. Natasha Gittens observed the quality of the clinic on Saturday and admired the interaction of the youth with the Olympians. TPI made the donation to illustrate our diverse commitment to developing the youth, people, organizations and professionals of the Caribbean, not only as a progressive training and organizational services firm but an organization that believes that humanitarian contributions are just as important as annual profits, said Gittens.
TPI has requested that the donation be specifically used to jump start a renewed marketing campaign in the Belvedere community, to educate and encourage youth to enroll and to buy shoes, protective gear and equipment. This donation will act as our second promised contribution to the St. Maarten community with two more events planned.
TPI understand to strive as a firm we must be in touch with all aspects of our communities and believe that placing emphasis on our youth must be an obvious priority. Young adults must be introduced to non-traditional sports like Hockey, that will act a springboard to teach them discipline and team work. Both essential characteristics to prepare for them for a successful academic, personal and professional life. When we educate youth ages 5-14 we are reaching them at the precise time to inject strong pillars of character.
