Beach Soccer Foundation Clinic in Dubai
Beach soccer legends come together to show some local kids the ways of the sport
What better way to use a top of the range beach soccer stadium than inviting some local youngsters to test out their own skills on the sand guided by some of the game’s biggest names.
The likes of Ozu, from the Japanese selection, Amarelle, former professional footballer and coach of the Chinese national team, as well as, the Executive Vice-President of Beach Soccer Worldwide, Joan Cuscó, came down early to Kite Beach where the Huawei Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup Dubai 2018 is taking place.
They spent well over an hour teaching the children some key beach soccer moves, such as shooting, dribbling on the sand – which is not as easy as the pros make it look! - and, even goalkeeping.
The organisation which was invited to the Beach Soccer Worldwide Clinic today was the Al Noor Training Centre for Children with Special Needs, which is based here in Dubai. A spokesperson from the centre said that “sports is a very important part of these children’s well-being and learning.”
She went on to state that “this is the reason that they have sports in the curriculum and we take them out and involve them in the community to make them independent.”
“That’s our mission” she added, “to make them independent. They are extremely excited to come and when they go back to school they tell everyone about what they did. They were so happy when they heard that [Beach Soccer Worldwide] were coming to Kite Beach.”
There was time for an official photoshoot with their favourite players afterwards as well. What a way to put some smiles on faces. Freebies in hand, out of breath, very sandy, but over the moon, the children filed out of the stadium happily chattering away about the experience.
Hopefully we’ll see them again next year!
