Astro Kasih and 1MCC Sports Sdn Bhd (1MCC) is organizing the 2014 edition of the 1MCC – Astro Kem BOLA Programme to search for young talents and nurture them from grassroots level through a series of professional and comprehensive training programme as well as competitive-play experiences at an international level.
Young Malaysian boys and girls between 10 and 12 years old are encouraged to register online at www.astrokasih.org/kembola to secure the spot for their preferred session.
Online registration for the remaining four venues is now open while the registration for the Perak selection camp will be closed on Monday, 8 September 2014.
Walk-in registrations at the selection camp venues are also welcome; however the space is limited on a first come first serve basis. It is compulsory to bring along a photocopy of MyKad or birth certificate for registration.
From the selection camp, 64 of the best participants will be selected for Advance Training Camp that is scheduled to be held in Kuala Lumpur. During this stage, participants will undergo intensive football training that focus on football fundamental skills, strategy play as well as supplementary activities that aims to instill team work and positive values among the participants.
Upon completion of the Advance Training Camp, a total of 32 boys and girls will be selected for the Overseas Training Programme where they will have the opportunity to be exposed to academy level coaching and competitive play with their peers through a series of friendly matches overseas.
Jordan Humphrey, Head Coach of 1MCC Sports Sdn Bhd said “1MCC-Astro Kem bola programme promotes not only the football development for boys but also provides the same exposure for girls of the same age.
For the selection camp, station-based try out modules are designed to test the participants’ basic fundamental skills for football such as passing, dribbling and shooting.
This year, we have instilled new elements in relation to testing the player's individual attacking and defending ability. We are excited to see a pool of potential young footballers here today. We hope this programme will continue to empower and encourage young Malaysian football talents to improve further in their passion for football.”
