Last week we delivered fun football activities to footballers from ages 4 through 12 at the Chelsea FC IDC holiday camps held during the Chinese New Year break week at UWCSEA East. The camp focused on developing skills used in football, in fun games and challenges. We studied Chelsea Stars such as Eden Hazard, and Cesc Fabregas, who use dribbling skills, 1v1s, shooting and passing to help educate players.
The Mini Merlions demonstrated fantastic ability over the three days, training from 9am-12pm. They showed off skills and performed brilliantly in the matches, utilising skills learned in challenges throughout the day.
The older groups showed great determination and willingness throughout the days to work hard from 9am-3pm. There were some great goals scored, both indoors and outdoors in our FUTSAL session just after lunch on the Wednesday.
We also had a mixed match of all ages in our FootGolf Championship, pairing players up from someone of all ages and completing our 9-hole course, filled with holes such as Crocodile Creek and Alligator Ally which were enjoyable for all.
On a sad note, we lose coach Gareth back to England after a long period of time, but with that we welcomed Coach Jake who will be spending the next two years with us.
