Hong Kong Football Association launches a new youth programm

Hong Kong Football Association continues to endorse youth football dreams to come true and has launched “The Jockey Club Youth Football Development Programme 2013” in collaboration with the Hong Kong Jockey Club and Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

The three institutions share a common belief in providing a football platform (Summer Scheme) to train young children on “Participation”, “Sportsmanship” and to groom on “Personal Development” and “Effort, Performance and Talent”. Furthermore, to realize a dream come true for tens of thousands local young football lovers the opportunity to play football throughout the summer holidays.

Mr. Mark Sutcliffe, Chief Executive Officer, The Hong Kong Football Association
“The key to the future of Hong Kong football is youth development. The children that take part in the Summer Youth programme are starting their journey as footballers. Some will hopefully end up being professional players. The event is also about fun and enjoyment and providing purposeful leisure time for young people. The HKFA is delighted to organize this event once again and as ever we are indebted to our partners, LCSD and the HK Jockey Club for their vital support. I would encourage as many people as possible to take part in this year’s programme and I hope it will be a great learning experience for everyone.”

Mr. Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges Jp, Chief Executive Officer, The Hong Kong Jockey Club
“Around 15,000 children and youths across the territory are able to benefit from the Youth Football Development Programme each year. This annual programme not only develops their sports skills, but also, more importantly, instils in our younger generation the virtues of sportsmanship, fair play, team spirit and discipline.”
