Dubai youngsters experience beach soccer

Disabled children from a local centre were given a thrilling lesson by the sport's stars.


Beach soccer stars competing at the Samsung Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup took the time out to put on a skills clinic for local disabled youngsters on Thursday morning.

Players from all eight nations headed down to the stadium at Dubai International Marine Club for the traditional Beach Soccer Worldwide clinic as 14 children got the chance to enjoy an unforgettable time on the sand.

The young children, from Al Noot Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities, got the chance to take shots at goal as well as taking part in passing and goalkeeping exercises as the power of beach soccer once again made for an incredible morning.

Clinics - held at many of Beach Soccer Worldwide’s tournaments across the globe - form part of the Beach Soccer Foundation, with Beach Soccer Worldwide Executive Vice-President Joan Cusco delighted at the impact such events continue to have.

“Everyone loves the action in matches when we put on tournament such as this but we also recognise our social responsibility,” he said.

“Clinics like these really put a smile on young people’s faces and it’s something we feel very proud to organise.”

Ikram ul Hasan Jalali, physical education teacher at the centre, added: “The children love the experience of beach soccer and at the same time it is very beneficial for them.

“It is something they look forward to during the whole year, as it is a very special date in our calendar. Also, all the organisation and the players were just fantastic.”
