Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

VIVA, Kuwait’s fastest-grow­ing and most de­vel­oped tele­com op­er­a­tor, an­nounced that the top 11 qual­i­fy­ing play­ers will be trav­el­ling to Madrid in Spain, to prac­tice at VIVA Real Madrid Academy’s ground in Valde­be­bas Sport City, from July 30 un­til Au­gust 8, 2017. Com­ment­ing on this oc­ca­sion, Ab­dul­raz­zaq Bader AlEssa, Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Di­rec­tor at VIVA said: “We are very pleased to sup­port those young ath­letes (be­tween 13 and 16 years old), and bring­ing them closer to their dream of be­com­ing pro­fes­sional foot­ball play­ers.”

He added: “VIVA Real Madrid Soc­cer School is one of VIVA’s CSR ini­tia­tives that aims to sup­port the youth through it, en­hance their skills and grant them the op­por­tu­nity to learn and com­mu­ni­cate with in­ter­na­tional and pro­fes­sional coaches to earn the needed ex­pe­ri­ence that lead them to ful­fill their dreams.” Play­ers were se­lected from over 400 par­tic­i­pants who joined the VIVA RM Soc­cer Academy try­outs, held in last March in Kuwait, and will get the op­por­tu­nity to travel to Madrid to join a train­ing camp to get trained by fa­mous soc­cer team coaches. A team from VIVA in ad­di­tion to pro­fes­sion­als and coaches will ac­com­pany the play­ers to en­sure their safety.

A judg­ing com­mit­tee from RMSS chose the top 11 play­ers. Each of them were judged based on their soc­cer ca­pa­bil­ity and ta­lent, phys­i­cal fit­ness, dis­ci­pline, their com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills amongst each other as play­ers and their gen­eral con­duct on and off the field. The train­ing pro­gram fo­cused on dif­fer­ent tech­ni­cal ar­eas, such as drib­bling, short pass­ing, turn­ing and fin­ish­ing. The pro­grams were also de­signed to de­velop young play­ers in other fields, such as tac­ti­cal un­der­stand­ing, and men­tal, phys­i­cal and so­cial growth. Play­ers’ daily train­ings will be cov­ered live through VIVA’s of­fi­cial so­cial me­dia plat­forms on Snapchat VIVAt­ele­com and In­sta­gram VIVA tele­com.
