With a pinch of love and a large dose of interest.

Tamara Caridad Mesa González 25 noviembre, 2020

The training of young athletes is key in the sporting development of the province, but what happens when there is too much desire and resources are scarce? What to do when not only the shortcomings, but the interest of those responsible are absent from the sports training centers? Or worse yet, who is to blame for the faults when several agencies answer for the institution?

Several educational centers related to sports in the municipality of Matanzas today show terrible conditions that negatively influence the educational process. To cite just two examples, we will emphasize the classrooms attached to the José Alfredo Sosa Morales School of Physical Education Teachers (EPEF) and the oldest active field in the world, the Palmar de Junco stadium.

In the adjoining classrooms, responsible for teaching tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students, the comfort of both teachers and students is far away, as it is impossible to conceive of a class on a rainy day. I do not think it is likely to teach a subject and be aware of the rainfall that enters the classroom through the roof and windows, attend to the teacher while the sun nests on the arm, forehead or back, or have only two notebooks and a pencil left over from the previous year. These are just some of the difficulties that afflict them.

Meanwhile, the youth category players attend Palmar de Junco every afternoon, that place where the grass grows freely on the grass, the chapeadora does not arrive and when it does, it travels over the muddy terrain leaving furrows that become holes on the which is impossible to run to reach a fly. Beyond the conditions of the academy where these young people are housed, the lack of equipment in the gym or implements for the game, the alarm goes off, because we are talking about living history, not just sports, it is the land of the legendary Palmar de Junco!

And I ask myself once again, who to turn to for answers? There are so many who must watch over the care of these two centers that they have not yet decided who will fix the problems. I propose the union of all, with a little budget, a pinch of love and a large dose of interest, they will be able to provide the minimum of conditions to two work groups, which even with enormous deficiencies fill Matanzas with pride for their results.
