AFTER the customary end of year break the VSADC Youth Academy will re-open for its 12th season today. The Academy currently has a membership of 120 attendees and caters for both boys and girls from the ages of 6 -19 years.
The Academy programme is aimed at providing an environment which facilitates the holistic development of the participants. The programme includes athletic and football training aimed at allowing attendees to develop motors skills, skill enhancement and physical development. Additionally, attendees are exposed to life skills, lectures and sessions aimed at providing them with a platform to mature into productive young adults. This is a deliberate slant as the VSADC’s Youth Academy motto is “Beyond Football.”
Today’s opening will include a short opening ceremony at the Vigie Sports Complex. where coaches, academy and club officials will address parents and attendees on the plans for the 2017 season.
All parents and attendees are encouraged to be punctual for Saturday’s opening ceremony.
