Arona’s grassroots’ soccer teams in new deal with Italy
Soccer squads in Arona are to get first-hand training from Italy!
Coaches and instructors of AC Chievo Verona will travel to Arona from September to advise and teach their work methodology to the football teams of the municipality.
The agreement also means that at the end of the season, six girls and boys from each club and six monitors will travel to Italy to perfect their technique in the facilities of this club, improving the level of the teams and opening doors to local talent.
Four local clubs have joined: the Arona Furia Sports Club, Buzanada Sports Club, Ibarra Sports Union and Igara Sports Club.
The Associazione Calcio ChievoVerona is an Italian football club that is part of the so-called Serie A of this country, the highest category of the Italian league system.
One hundred per cent subsidised by the Sports Board itself, this programme will redirect local sport, open it up to new techniques from the highest soccer category in Italy, while giving professional opportunities to local talents abroad .
The Mayor of Arona, José Julián Mena, explained that “this agreement with AC Chievo Verona will allow local clubs that wish to receive advice at the highest football level, both for their instructors and coaches as well as for the players themselves, which is going to translate into a consolidation of the teams themselves, all at a time when they all have facilities significantly better than we are at the beginning of the current term.”
“Encouraging grassroots sports is fundamental for this government group because it means sowing the seeds of a healthy and responsible life in those who are going to be the future citizens of the muni-cipality and that is also part of the sustainability of which we have done flag in these three years,” he added.
