VERDURA GOLF & SPA RESORT LAUNCHES NEW JUVENTUS SUMMER TRAINING SESSION
Sicily, June 2013 –Rocco Forte’s Verdura Golf & Spa Resort in Sicily has teamed up with Juventus Soccer Schools to launch its Summer Training Session – the only one of its kind for the location. From 1 July to 15 September 2013, coaches coming from Juventus entourage will organize training classes offering the resort’s young guests the opportunity to improve their football skills, while making new friends from across Europe.
Kick-starting the summer, future champions– aged five to 16 - will be able to join some of the world’s best football coaches – educated and trained by Juventus University - for daily two hour and half training sessions followed by a 30-minute match which will take place on Verdura’s full-size football pitch, set amidst a beautiful backdrop of mountains and orange orchards.
All the Participants, boys and girls, will start their day with warm up exercises, followed by a technical session focussing on the development of ball control and ball passing exercises. They will then be able to hone their offensive and defensive strategies before putting their newly learned skills to the test during a match, with many a parent joining to cheer on their offspring from the sidelines.
When not on the football pitch, Verdura’s Kids and Teens Clubs provide the perfect location to hang out with newly-made friends. Teenagers are offered a myriad of activities to suit all tastes including Stand Up Paddling, wakeboarding, cooking and ‘mocktail’ making classes while the Kids Club ensures four to 12-year olds are entertained with pizza making classes, treasure hunts and swimming on tap.
