THE Fiji National Sports Commission has again taken the gospel of sports out to the rural areas.

This time, the FNSC Sports Outreach program was held at Nadua Village in Wainunu, Bua on the island of Vanua Levu earlier this month.

Top sporting development officers such as Jack Toebelman (AFL), former Fiji 7s assistant coach Etuate Waqa (rugby), Laisenia Seru (volleyball), Losalini Bainivalu (netball), Inoke Niubalavu (baseball), Iniasi Cakacaka and Viliame Yabaki (cricket) and Netani Koroi and Isikeli Narawa (rugby league) were part of the team.

The program was attended by people from 25 of the 54 villages in the province of Bua.

About 116 participants were taught the basics of each sport and the technical and administration aspects of the organisations.

FNSC development officer northern Epeli Tagivetaua said they were pleased with the turnout.

"Our goal is to spread the gospel of sports to the rural areas," he said.

"We're taking it to the villages for the first time and we're pleased with the responses we're getting."

Tagivetaua said they would continue the outreach program to other rural areas on Vanua Levu.
