With their bags packed and ready to go, 20 young players with their parents set off on an adventurous six-day coaching trip to Salou in Spain recently.
Teams from the school were set to enjoy coaching sessions with A licence Spanish coaches, while also playing a team from Finland.
The Young Lions Summer Soccer Coaching School, based on the Moate Business School Campus, is designed to encourage players at an early age to develop football and teamwork skills in a safe, non-competitive, fun environment, with parental support and encouragement, under the direction of a team of skilled coaches.
It will run every Saturday from June 10. It welcomes boys and girls ranging in age from five to 14 years, including those who may already be members of clubs or teams. Sessions run for one hour each Saturday. The five- and six-year-olds will work in their own coaching area.
To enhance the players’ experience and to boost confidence, parents must accompany their child to and from the campus and stay on the side encouraging players for the duration of the session. Parental attendance is fundamental to the success of this programme. Neither parental nor third party coaching is allowed. Parents who must leave early must bring their child with them. The school is not equipped to deal with a child who may need individual parental support.
The final registration date is Saturday, May 13, at Moate Business College at 2pm. Player registration forms are available online. For more information check out Young Lions Soccer School on Facebook or email [email protected].
