IN THE hopes of de­vel­op­ing and pro­mot­ing foot­ball in Cebu, the Cebu In­ter­na­tional School (CIS), to­gether with Fundlife In­ter­na­tional, will bring in world-class coaches from the Premier League and host a six-day camp dubbed as the Ar­se­nal FC Sum­mer Clinic start­ing June 12 at the CIS Soc­cer Field in Pit-os, Talam­ban, Cebu City.

The coaches who will be present in the camp are Ar­se­nal men­tors Joe Macken­zie and Es­ther Mano, who are English Foot­ball Level 1 and 2 coaches, re­spec­tively.

“The goal of the camp is to of­fer chil­dren pro­fes­sional coach­ing by FA qual­i­fied coaches, aid­ing their devel­op­ment and also pro­mot­ing foot­ball in Cebu. A so­cial aim is to have the tour­na­ment at the end and open up com­mu­nity teams with more ac­cess to foot­ball,” said Marko Ka­sic of Fundlife In­ter­na­tional.

The train­ing camp is open to ev- ery­one and will fea­ture 10 train­ing ses­sions with each ses­sion last­ing one hour and 30 min­utes. There will also be a tour­na­ment that will serve as a con­clud­ing event for the clinic.

“The tour­na­ment is a chance for kids to have a fun cul­mi­nat­ing event. We also hope to in­vite teams com­mu­ni­ties in Cebu to join the tour­na­ment and have some small prizes,” Ka­sic added.

In­ter­ested par­tic­i­pants may con­tact CIS Sports & Ac­tiv­i­ties Di­rec­tor Ace Pierra at 0917-518-9353 for de­tails. Dead­line for regis­tra­tion is on June 2.
