World top coaches at two youth camps

IF you’re looking for some football in the October school holidays, don’t miss this opportunity!

As part of its partnership with Sydney Olympic Football Club, the academy coaching staff of Bundesliga Giants FC Schalke 04, one of the best academies in the world, are coming to Sydney in the October school holidays to demonstrate their new methodology and training concept and structure for boys and girls aged six to 17.
Sydney Olympic Football Club CEO John Boulous said: “We are very proud of the football development partnership that we share with FC Schalke 04. The support they have provided our football program and pathway over the last three years is second to none.
“The partnership has included coach exchanges between the clubs, with one coach Kerim Baba from FC Schalke 04, permanently based here at Sydney Olympic FC. In addition to this, our squads have undertaken training camps at FC Schalke O4 headquarters and of course critical to the partnership is talent identification, highlighted by the move last season of Men’s 1st Grade player George Timotheou from Sydney Olympic to make his Bundesliga debut for FC Schalke 04.
“We are very excited to welcome FC Schalke 04 academy coaches to Sydney to provide players from any club the opportunity to not only impress, but continue their development.”
There are two camps for you to choose from: Tuesday to Friday, October 1-4 and Tuesday to Friday, October 8-11, at Strathfield Park, Chalmers Rd, Strathfield (under 6-11 years boys and girls, 10am-12pm, each day and under 12-17 years boys and girls, 1-3pm, each day).
