Roy imparts Dutch way

When Roy Wilhelm returns to the Cayman Islands for a fourth time, he will be teaching the Dutch style of football.

Wilhelm, 59, will be leading a contingent of coaches at the annual Dutch football camp on 6-10 August. Hosted by the Cayman Islands Football Association, the Camana Bay Sports Field will serve as host Monday-Friday, 8.30am-12.30pm.

The football guru has said many times that the play seen in Holland is very unique.

“The Dutch football philosophy is to create an open learning environment built around the structure of their national football education, known all over the world,” Wilhelm said previously. “The Dutch staff and the Cayman football representatives believe that the camp programme is designed to build on successes in which player’s skills are analysed, identified and corrected.

“Our Dutch staff will be totally dedicated to the development of the Caymanians. Every session, every day will be a challenge because my staff and I will show the participants the cutting edge of the Dutch training method. The players will be challenged in two areas: technical improvement, and tactical awareness.”

The camp, aimed at boys and girls aged 6-18, is part of Wilhelm’s Dutch Soccer School Caribbean 2012 tour.

The camp registration fee is $150 and includes a ball and a T-shirt. For more information, call 949-5775 or e-mail [email protected] or [email protected]
