International coaches boost Academy Sports Club’s youth camp

Participants will have the opportunity to train with the international football coaches from the visiting teams from the tournament.

The coaches will concentrate on improving techniques of basic skills such as passing, dribbling and shooting and will emphasize the importance of proper footwork and ball control. The camp also aims to build the self-confidence of players individually and to promote the importance of teamwork.

Virgil Seymour, head coach at Academy Sports Club, said, “We are delighted to be able to offer this camp as a bonus to the Cayman Airways U-14 Invitational Youth Cup.

“Participants in the camp will be put through their paces, that’s for sure, but it will be also be fun and provide an environment where all the players can expect to improve their skills, technique and knowledge of the game,” he said.
