The inclement weather that Scotland witnessed over the past week didn’t stop some young footballers with Box2Box Training getting the green light to train at Aberdeen Sports Village on Saturday lunchtime.
Box2Box Training is a football coaching school that offers quality group training sessions at the Aberdeen sports village for kids aged between 8-15. Box2Box training does classes on a Saturday between 12-1pm. The group average around 40 people every week and there was 35 young kids in attendance on Saturday which is good going after the horrible weather that has been grasped.
The youngsters at Box2Box Training are in good hands under coaches Jamie Clark, Kenny Robertson, Allan Youngson & they also have goalkeeper training too. A range of players who play for respective boys clubs in the area come to the training alongside players who are currently on the books within the youth academy at Aberdeen FC.
Box2Box Training are also going to run a camp on the 7th May at the Newburgh Community Sports Hub, there will be games, competitions, football tennis and much more. YFS are intending on heading along to do some coverage from the event. The camp takes place from 10am-3pm and there will also be hot and cold food on offer.
Coach Jamie Clark said, “We are looking at all abilities and guys that have maybe not been playing football, in the coming months we might look to start a younger age group however currently we are working with 8-15 year olds.
“We look to do technical stuff as much as possible, obviously we only have a hour every week so we don’t want to be doing shape drills or anything like that, we literally want to be working on their passing, their touch and keep the intensity up so they are always working.”
Coach Kenny Robertson said, “It’s very good, because they are coming in at eight years old then some of them have played football before and there is new players getting used to touching the ball with both feet and we introduce more disciplined passing drills and game related stuff, we keep instruction down.”
