Mellieħa SC Football School hosted a coaching clinic with coaches from the Valencia CF Academy last month.
The initiative forms part of a partnership agreement that exists between the Maltese club and the Spanish La Liga club which got under way last year.
Coaches from the Valencia CF Academy spent five days in Malta, during which their head coach Vincent Roch, delivered a session for coaches not only of Mellieha SC Football School but also to others from other clubs in Malta.
“Dreams are becoming realities and this weekend it was the turn of our coaches to gain experience and knowledge from one of the most successful academies in Spain and Europe,” Mellieha SC Football School said.
“Since our football school has started a collaboration with Valencia CF Academy last year, part of the process was to have a ‘coaching clinic’, not only for our coaches but also for any coach from any club of the Maltese Islands.
“The exceptional delivery by one of their best coaches Vicente Roch, who was here for five days at our premises, covered methodology and knowledge with the most modern concepts, which make the Valencia CF Academy one of the most successful in Europe.”
Mellieha SC Football School said that it had no doubt that this unique experience, the first of its kind in Malta, “will bring out the best in our coaches which in turn will be able to transmit their passion” to their young football players.
