THE Nadi Football Association has called off its youth academy clinic because of unfavourable weather conditions.
Academy director Javed Ahmed said the clinic was organised to groom future Nadi players. He said a lot of kids had responded to the academy.
"The youth soccer clinic is scheduled every Saturday. We want our future soccer players to learn the essentials of key soccer skills like dribbling, passing and shooting," Ahmed said.
"We want to develop players for the future and these clinics will rapidly advance the skills of young players and allow them to develop the most important elements of youth soccer in professional environment."
Ahmed said a junior league would test players on what they had learnt.
"The past few weeks have been a great success with more than 100 kids turning up so far. Now the academy plans to kick-off a junior league in four age groups from mid-April. We will work with sponsors to ensure all junior players are well equipped with uniforms and essential playing kits," he said.
Ahmed said the clinic would continue next weekend, if the weather improves. The clinic is usually held at the Nadi Muslim School grounds.
