You realize that sports development is more effective when efforts are structured right from the tender age" said Sam Ntulume, the Dolphins Club chairman during the launch of the event on Tuesday at Hill Preparatory in Naguru.

Dolphins, Seals, Baseline, Gliders, Sailfish, Altona, Silverfin, among other teams will participate.
