Soc­cer in pitch to youth

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

YOUNG soc­cer play­ers from across Perth play­ing five-aside will re­ceive coach­ing from for­mer Perth Glory player Mark Lee at Wem­b­ley Bowl­ing Club from February.

Lee, the direc­tor of Pro Foot­ball Train­ing, said there was a prob­lem in Aus­tralia with putting too much pres­sure on kids.

“These ses­sions will pro­vide lots of fun, max­i­mum par­tic­i­pa­tion, max­imis­ing get­ting on the ball and get­ting friends for each team,” he said.

His com­pany will pro­vide train­ing on the for­mer bowl­ing greens, which were re­de­vel­oped by five-a-side or­gan­iser and tour­na­ment op­er­a­tor Area 5.

The play­ers par­tic­i­pate in tour­na­ments for ages from un­der 6 to un­der 15s dur­ing the first term of next year.
