Young gunners to tap into top level coaching
ENGLISH football giants Arsenal FC will roll out its Soccer Schools Australia partnership with North Coast Premier League club the Northern Storm next week.
A three-day training camp will be held at the Coffs Harbour club's Korora fields from Friday, January 19 until Sunday, January 21.
Some places in the camp remain available for players aged 6 to 15 years of age.
"We are very pleased to be welcoming the Arsenal Soccer Schools program to the Northern Storm Football Club, it's a fantastic opportunity for the area to be able to introduce Premier League quality coaching to regional Australia,” Northern Storm Under 13s coach Eric McCarthy said.
Arsenal Soccer Schools Australia's Halil Hussein said the camps would foster talent by having coaches teach players how to "play the Arsenal way” a fast-flowing counter attacking style where holding possession was key.
"We try to develop kids of all ages to give them that chance to reach their dreams,” Hussein said.
"These camps will give young players the chance to be coached by high level coaches.”
