Delegates from NorthEast United FC attended a 2 day workshop organized by the Indian Super League (ISL) in Navi Mumbai from the 18th to the 19th of January, 2017.
Headed by the ISL's Technical Director of Grassroots, Piet Hubers, the workshop saw participation from all the eight ISL Clubs. The topics covered varied from educative sessions on setting up Youth Academies to Scouting young talents.
The delegates paid a visit to the Reliance Young Champs training session and got to witness the quality of the shortlisted children first-hand. What was heartening to see was the tremendous progress that the boys from the North-East have made!
The workshop included an informative session on the workings of the Young Champs Academy and a tour of the residential facilities by Head Coach Marcus Vaessen.
Proceedings ended with a valuable discourse on Scouting disseminated by Piet Hubers that included a practical session to reinforce the learnings. The NEUFC delegation returned with rich information which shall be put into practice for the ongoing 2017 Grassroots Season.
