Ulinzi Starlets embrace online training after sports ban

Ulinzi Starlets head coach Joseph Wambua says he’s rolled out an online training program which will keep his players fit during the sports-ban period.

“It is a hard situation for the whole sports fraternity. We have to respect the order of the President but for us training shall still continue though individually.”

“As a club, we have come up with online training programmes which will force all the players to do light training at home. Light training here means doing some pushups, ball juggling among others.”

“Every player will therefore be required to record a video doing the trainings and submit it to me and those who will not do that they will have to explain. By doing this everyone will be physically fit,” claimed Wambua.

Ulinzi are second in Zone A league with 30 points, nine adrift  of leaders Thika Queens while Gaspo Women sit third with 19 points. Kayole Starlets and Zetech Sparks wrap up the top five with 13 and 11 points respectively.

Wambua is at the same time upbeat that the league will resume ‘soon’ as he aims at bagging the title, the first time in history.

“It’s my prayer that the league will resume soon. Our aim is to clinch the title. I know for now we have a big difference in points compared to the leader but we shall soon catch up once the sports activities resumes,” he enthused.

This is the second time sports activities have been halted after a similar order was issued in March 2020.

The Football Kenya Federation Premier League, the National Super League, and the Kenyan Women Premier League had all begun and were at different stages.
