adidas Philippines and Chelsea FC hold Chelsea FC Foundation Coaching Clinic
Manila, Philippines – The Chelsea Football Club (FC) Foundation, in partnership with adidas Philippines and the Younghusbands Football Academy, held a coaching clinic in Tribeca Field, Muntinlupa City. The Tribeca field is home to the Younghusbands Football Academy, and has also been used to host past Chelsea clinics.
60 kids, aging from 10 to 15 years old, from the Elite Program of Loyola-Meralco Football School are the participants of this 2-day program. The coaching clinic aims to further grow and develop the sport of football in the Philippines through the youth. Chelsea FC coaches David Stewart, James Lambdon, Russel Banyard, Steve Winnett, and Tom Bird, flew all the way from the United Kingdom to personally train the kids in advanced football techniques. The coaches also gave a one-hour seminar to educate the kids’ parents on how best they can support their children.
AZKALS stars and adidas Brand Ambassadors Phil and James Younghusband were also at the Clinic helping to train the participants. They founded the Younghusbands Football Academy, which operates the Chelsea FC Soccer School in the Philippines. The brothers, who are Chelsea Certified Coaches, spearhead the school, which was formally launched last May 14.
