The Belvedere FC Easter Camp 2017 has drawn to a close in Clontarf.
75 Belvo players attended the four day camp with a total of 16 hours playing time for those who attended, which is over double what the players would get across a normal training week.
Belvo Coach Ciaran Duffy was delighted with how the week went.
“Things went really well again. It's a great opportunity for our coaches to spend time working on aspects of our players game knowledge that is not always possible in regular training due to time and space restrictions, the players all really enjoyed themselves and go a really good amount of contact hours with the ball.”
We also had an additional 15 junior Belvo Academy players attend a bonus academy session at the end of Wednesday's camp.
Camp director and U14 coach Tony O'Neill was delighted with the response from players and parents.
“This was the first of four week long camps we expect to hold in the current calendar season and I think the extra contact time with players is hugely beneficial in improving our players in many aspects from their control, their passing, their heading, their finishing and most importantly their decision making.”
“Our camps are geared towards ensuring the players have lots of fun games and a chance to bond with their team and club-mates through the week.”
“I’d like to thank all of the players and their parents for their hard work and attendance and we look forward to continuing the season now ahead of our next camp in the summer.”
