Over 130 children took part overt the two week camp held at the Victoria Stadium in the month of July when Gibraltar’s schools had finished for summer.
Desi Curry, GFA Technical Director, was delighted with the turnout summer 2019 Camp as a whole commenting:
‘In line with our ‘Play without Pressure’ campaign our Grassroots team have been extremely busy every weekend organising free participation in structured skills and games sessions. We have followed this up with 10 mornings of fun and inclusive coaching and skill development sessions, all delivered by our UEFA Level 1, C and B Licence coaches! During the last 6 weeks we have had approximately 130 boys and girls participating in their age specific groups, forming new friendships and falling in love with the beautiful game!! 5 Licenced, first aided and safeguarded coaches worked tirelessly to deliver our most successful summer so far! Bring on 2020!”
