Football Federation Samoa Develops Grassroots


The Football Federation Samoa Center of Development Programme is back to develop the ordinary youngster. Last week, the reintroduction of the programme was held as part of the Football Federation Samoa’s (F.F.S.) technical programme.

Thirty youthful gifted youth players chose from different clubs as of now contending in the National Youth League competition were welcome to kick-begin the program.

The Football Federation Samoa released a statement while stating, “The F.F.S. Centre for Development focuses on the development of football skills for children between the ages of 10 and 13 as it believes in nurturing players from a young age.”

Further, the sports association added, “Some important aspects of the Centre’s programme are to focus on the technical skills as well as a discipline as it has been noted that while Samoan youngsters normally have the physical quality, it is similarly essential to introduce specialized aptitudes and train at an early age.”

F.F.S. Centre for Development has offered scholarships to local students apart from the skills and ongoing support provided to players. The sports association offered scholarships Jarvis Alatise who is currently studying at Hastings Boys High school in New Zealand.

The association trusts that encouraging groups of people for youthful Samoan youngsters is significant to the improvement of football in Samoa at the grassroots level which benefits football advancement over the long haul.

The training programme is scheduled to run twice a week throughout the year for everyone from 10 to 13 years of age and it will also provide free transportation of selected students to ensure continuity of its programme.
