PSV Eindhoven coach Roy Wilhelm
brings another group of coaches to the Cayman Islands for a Dutch Soccer Camp
next month to give aspiring footballers of both sexes some top class tips on
how to further their careers. Wilhelm returns following the success of last
year’s camp when he worked with talented Caymanian youngsters.
Youth football in the Cayman
Islands is really taking off, thanks to progressive coaches, officials,
parents, the Cayman Islands Football Association and a supportive government,
especially Minister of Sport Mark Scotland who has a huge determination to see
youngsters develop not just in the game but also to use football as a vehicle
to better themselves as they grow into adulthood. Scotland is president of
Bodden Town Football Club, one of Cayman’s most progressive clubs whose youth
policy is one of the best on the Island.
The camp runs from 8-14 August at
the Truman Bodden Sports Complex between 8:30am and 12:30pm daily. Wilhelm
brings additional coaches with him this year. This will enable him to conduct
two age groups at the same time. The camp will be open for boys and girls aged
6-18. Budding goalkeepers will get a special treat as there will be a specialist
goalkeeping coach included in the group.
The registration fee remains at
$150 same as last year and includes a kit, ball and refreshments, as well as
access to some of the best youth coaches in the Dutch system.
