The Football Center kicks off the new year with kid's academy

Responding to demand for organised sporting activities for children, Dubai's newest sporting facility the Football Center is launching a 12-week kid's football academy starting in January.

The academy, which starts from January 6th, is designed to teach ball-control skills, improve fitness and build teamwork for children aged 5 to 14. There is also a specifically developed coaching programme for toddlers aged three and four years.

“The programme has been developed by top coaches in European professional clubs and is headed by former UAE ladies national player Shante Shekhanzai,” said Anouar Idrissi, managing director, the Football Center. “It focuses on encouraging children to, not only improve their football skills, but also interact with peers in a sporting environment.”

The one hour and 20 minutes sessions are available every day after school as well as on Friday and Saturday mornings and are priced at Dhs 900 for the 12-week block. There is also an option to sign up for two sessions per week.

All those attending will be issued with a full Nike training kit and Nike water bottle.

The academy structure has been carefully planned and has brought together coaching techniques from many different backgrounds.

“Our main aim for all children who sign up is that they improve their football skills in a fun, safe and controlled environment, regardless of their abilities,” said Idrissi. “Not only will they learn new skills including shooting, defending and passing the ball, there will be an element of encouraging social interaction and promoting healthy activity.”

The Football Center is a brand new purpose-built centre featuring four new generation artificial grass pitches, all with UEFA accredited turf, jorkyball pitches and a viewing area as well as wifi connectivity all in a comfortable indoor arena. It is easily accessible and supported by fully qualified coaches.

About the Football Center
Centrally located just off Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, the Football Center has created a hybrid concept between health and mind by providing a complete football experience and tailored sports service. In addition to the four artificial grass pitches, the centre also boasts the region's first jorkyball pitch.
