FC Goa in association with the Forca Goa Foundation will launch FC Goa Soccer Schools on April 20, 2018.
According to a statement here on Tuesday, the specially curated programme aims to help the development of the sport in the state of Goa and to help more children get the opportunity to take up the game. The Soccer Schools will run for a period of one month between April 20 to
May 20 for children between the ages of 8 and 14.
FC Goa Head of Youth Development Derrick Pereira has curated a special coaching plan for the programme which aims to develop the technical ability of children interested in playing the sport.
Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with first team players of the FC Goa squad, in addition to taking home FC Goa branded footballs and customized FC Goa Soccer School kits.
The programme will run from two venues across the state – one each in North and South Goa. The Sangolda Panchayat ground in Sangolda and the Raia Panchayat ground in Raia will serve as the venues. Children will be divided into three different age categories – U10, U12 and U14.
