Teen Azkals to hold three-day clinic in Cebu

Thursday, April 25, 2013
TEEN Azkals Soccer School will visit Cebu to conduct a football clinic in all age group categories from May 14 to 17, from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Aboitiz Sports Field.
The four-day sessions will be handled by Philippines 19-Under national head coach Marlon Maro, who will be assisted by Glen Ramos.
Registration fee for the clinic is P2,500 and comes with a free Teen Azkals jersey.
Team managers Alvin Carranza and Chito Manuel will also be present as it will also be an opportunity to scout potential players for the 19-Under national team, also dubbed the Teen Azkals.
But Ramos said that the scouting will not be only limited to players in the 19-under division as it encompasses other age group categories as well.
“We’ll keep an eye on other age group players like those born in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 players who can be endorsed to national coaches,” said Ramos.
The national team is preparing for the 2013 Asian Football Confederation 19-under Qualifiers this October 26 in Japan.
It has conducted two national tryouts in San Carlos and Manila and also scouted players in universities.
The coaching staff is evaluating players who will make it to the final roster and will hold a final selection phase next month.
They will have weekend camps from June to September and a local camp from May 28 to June 8.
In July, the Teen Azkals are expected to leave for either Thailand or Vietnam for a two-week overseas camp and a week before the qualifiers, they will fly to USA or Japan for the final camp.
