Eighty of St. Vincent and the Grenadines top young footballers, aged 12 to 16, from the local football clubs and schools have been chosen to compete in challenges that will test their skills in short passing, dribbling, defensive qualities, teamwork, attitude and scoring goals.
This as Manchester United Football Club in partnership with Flow hosts the second Flow Skills Ultimate Football Experience across 15 Caribbean countries.
The local leg of this year’s event takes place tomorrow February 3, 2018 at the Campden Park Playing Field, from 8:00am – 12:00pm.
The skills are all taken from the Manchester United Soccer Schools’ programme and local coaches will evaluate and rank each player throughout the morning.
Based on the rankings and assessments in each skill, two winners will be selected at the end of the event. These two players along with their coaches and a parent each will then travel to Trinidad where the players will compete in a final weekend of skills and small sided games in Trinidad.
The final weekend will include one-on-one training with Manchester United Soccer School Coaches.
The players will also compete with the finalists from the other 14 countries for the chance to be one of two players to win a once-in-a-lifetime VIP trip to Old Trafford in Manchester, England. The coaches of the winning players will also attend.
