The launch of the select squad united both the current branches of the Elite Football Squads. Currently at each age group we have squads at three venues. The aim of the “Select Squads” is to bring together the most talented players from each venue and form a new team to represent Elite at the highest level of competition both home and abroad.
The select team will represent Elite in upcoming tournaments and our annual overseas tour as well as facing off against the UAE Professional clubs.
This Saturday was the first session for our Elite “Select Squad” U10s & U14s. We saw a combined number of 38 players across both squads attending training at JESS.
As we anticipated the session standard was high. The attitude, effort, and quality was clear for all to see. The players understand that competition will be high within the session and their attitude and effort must match that. Due to this the level of play was of a high caliber.
The first session focused on getting to know each of the fellow players and coaches, as well as setting the standard for the future weeks to come. The session topic was based around shape, receiving under pressure and 1v1 domination.
The course is a 5 week program and at the end of the course a squad will be selected.
