18.03.19 A successful first Academy Trip
In another first for the Club, Swieqi United's Academy recently went on a football trip to Sicily. Head Coach Andrea Vella stated that the aim of this trip was to give a good, fun, and new learning experience to children playing in the Academy.
During the trip, the Academy had the opportunity to play against two well organised Sicilian teams - Paceco and Accademia Sportiva Trapani. All the Academies were very pleased with the experience and the fair play displayed. Furthermore, a good relationship between the teams was established and plans for future collaborations are already in process.
Academy players gave encouraging and positive feedback, highlighting a good element of fun and a number of positive feelings. The players stated that this was a good opportunity to experience new cultures and football styles. Others mentioned the fact that they were proud to represent their country and that they reinforced what coaches constantly tell them during training.
Parents expressed their satisfaction seeing their children enjoy the whole experience and learn new football related aspects.
Once again, Swieqi United FC has put its philosophy into practice as a positive collaboration between coaches, players, parents, and the Club itself continues to strengthen.
