Perth Glory’s strong off-season recruitment drive has paved the way for more than 400 enthusiastic fans of the world game sign up to the club’s popular “Soccer Schools” holiday clinics.
The club’s Community Department will launch the two-week program this Thursday at Subiaco AFC’s Rosalie Park in Shenton Park.
Department Manager Callum Salmon said there was no doubt the strong finish to the Hyundai A-League 15/16 campaign helped attract many young Western Australians to sign up to the program.
“The Community Department really enjoys the Soccer Schools program throughout the year- we host the clinics four times a year.” he said.
“We see a lot of progress made in all aspects of the game, whether it’s their skills or attitude to playing, from the start of the program to its conclusion and it's rewarding for us on the sidelines to witness as coaches”.
“It’s a wonderful chance for a young player to learn the skills and attitudes that we value so highly at Perth Glory Football Club” he added.
The Soccer Schools clinics are just one facet of the club's Community programs which reach around 50-thousand children every year.
The first of Glory’s two-day Soccer Schools programs begin this Thursday, July 7 at Subiaco AFC’s Rosalie Park where deadball specialist Nebo Marinkovic and rising stars Kosta Petratos and Alex Grant will also be in attendance.
The program then continues onto Albany, Yanchep, Bunbury and Melville during the second week of the school holidays.
Soccer Schools includes expert-level coaching from the club's community department, a number of player appearances from Glory’s Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League stars and Perth Glory merchandise giveaways.
Most of all it's a great way to have a kick about and have loads of fun!
