The first activity organized by the Floriana FC Nursery, in collaboration with Italian club SS Lazio, will start this week with trials being held on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 at the Floriana FC artificial turf pitch.
This was possible after an agreement signed last year between the Maltese and the Italian club to give Maltese kids the opportunity to widen their horizons abroad.
A total of five coaches and three organizers from SS Lazio will test the capabilities of the Maltese participants.
At the end of this trial, thirty participants will be chosen to play in a game which will be supervised by Claudio Colletta, the person responsible of the youth section of Lazio.
Eventually, five players will be then chosen to participate in a training camp held in Summer together with the Lazio Nursery.
The trials are open for all Maltese and Gozitan kids between the ages of 14 and 15.
The second activity will be a conference entitled “Ghaqdiet Sportivi – Mezz ta’ Titjib u Integrazzjoni Socjali” which will be held on the 13th March.
Three Italian representatives will be present for this conference together with Dr. Anthony Galea.
The conference is open for all sports administrators and organisers from any sports discipline.
