FC Goa's Football Schools programme is making dreams come true

FC Goa

Bengaluru, April 22: The FC Goa Football Schools Programme launched in October, 2019, continues to be a great stepping stone for young kids by providing them a platform to learn the sport, develop and play the game like favourite Gaurs stars like Mandar Rao Dessai, Brandon Fernandes, Princeton Rebello and Manvir Singh.

As of March 2020, more than 29 budding footballers were a part of the Football Schools initiative, and have been reaping the benefits of the programme in its entirety.

The programme includes a specially curated coaching plan set up by the club's Technical Director Derrick Pereira, implemented by a coaching staff handpicked by him, giving the kids a comprehensive training experience.

It is also one of the first such initiatives to issue custom monthly report cards - allowing coaches and parents to establish a strong direct line of communication.

Through this, the coaches are able to provide feedback on the performance of the kids and share the areas of improvement.

For anyone who is interested in signing up, the programme also offers a one-day free trial. This is meant for children and parents to test out the facilities, coaching and the curriculum before they enroll on a more long term basis.

The club's philosophy of playing attacking football, being technically proficient and tactically astute is exactly what is being nurtured in all the children that are a part of the programme this season.

The Football Schools motto of 'Learn to play the FC Goa way' is precisely what is being taught to the kids of all ages.
