THE first ever junior soccer clinic at the South Seas Club ground in Lautoka on Saturday attracted a good turnout.

More than 20 students participated in the clinic organised by former Lautoka youth coach, Mohammed Yusuf.

According to Yusuf, the enthusiasm showed by the participants was great.

He said the children were eager to learn the basic skills.

"There are many qualified coaches in the country but not all are doing development work," he said.

"The kids need to be taught the basic skills like passing, kicking and dribbling.

"In the strong footballing nations, the training programs for the children start from the age of five years," Yusuf said.

Students from Lautoka Muslim Primary, Saint Thomas Primary, Saint Thomas High, Pundit Vishnu Deo College and Lautoka Central Primary participated in the clinic.
