DA NANG (VNS) — Around 60 children aged from 8-15-years old are taking part in a summer football camp in the central city of Da Nang from May 15 to September 2.
Director of the programme, Nguyen Tran Anh Trong, said the camp taught basic skills over a three-month course during the summer vacation.
"We train them in summer course, but we also offer them training weekly at the camp with a fee from VND300,000 to 350,000 each per month," said Trong.
"This is the first regular football training course in the city, and we are aiming to find future talents to develop the football community," he said.
He added the course was free of charge for underprivileged children and a 50 per cent discount was available for children under seven. Girls also have a 15 per cent discount.
The course organisers said seven Asian Football Confederation (AFC)-accredited coaches were training the children.
Young talents who emerge may be recruited by football teams in the city or other provinces. — VNS
