ORGANISERS hailed the year's first school holidays touch rugby clinic a huge success.

About 40 children participated in the clinic and games at the University of the South Pacific grounds in Laucala Bay, Suva yesterday.

USP Touch Association official Tevita Mau said they fulfilled their objectives.

"The objectives of the clinic were twofold, development and create the touch experience to be enjoyed," he said.

"The support of the parents who came in numbers to support their children was very encouraging."

Mau said some children showed good potential.

"There were some talent on display that would be future ambassadors of the sport in years to come.

"It is a matter of creating such platforms to bring them to the sport of touch."

Mau thanked Fitness Centre manager Mark Fung and Fiji Touch Association president Georgina Lasaqa for their support towards the USP TA programs.

"The sport of touch will only grow from harnessing such development platforms.

"There will be a follow- up clinic and games for kids this coming Friday at the USP grounds.

"Clinic will start at 12 noon and will be followed by games."
