He said out of 70 youth, 50 of them will specialize in basketball while the remaining 50 will be engaged in soccer skills. He said the programme is exclusive for the youth aged between 12 and 16 years. "It's the programme that will only involve young players aged between 12 and 16 years, we won't allow anyone above the 16 years. He said in future, Don Bosco will use the youth in its senior teams, Savio for boys and DB Lioness for the girls. Both Savio and DB Lioness are the currently national basketball champions playing in the Dar es Salaam basketball Premier League (NBA). Adding, he said the centre planned to launch soccer programme and make it among the main sports of the centre. "We plan to add the number of young soccer players in future after those 20 we have now," he added. Savio veteran player, Mohamed Yusuf who will conduct the training, thanked the centre for launching the youth programme, which he said will help it maintain its status as the biggest promoter of sports talents.
