Monday, September 18, 2017

A five-day summer camp will be staged by the technical unit of the Gambia Football Federation (GFF), in partnership with the Secondary Schools Football Association to harness the skills of high school students.

The camp will kick-off tomorrow Tuesday, September 19, 2017.

The camp will host forty players: 20 boys and girls, respectively.

The campers will be trained on issues sensitive to the growth of a footballer, notably technical training, performance analysis, nutrition, psychological behaviour and comportment.

They will work with high level coaches, among them the national team coach and other national and regional coaches.

The campers are drawn from senior secondary schools in the Greater Banjul Area (Banjul, Kanifing Municipal Council and West Coast Region).

According to Matarr Mboge, the under U: 17 coach, this was just a pilot phase, and if everything went well, the next camp will include talents across all schools and regions.

The camp which will be residential, will wind up on Saturday, September, 23, 2017.
