The Wembley Way

The Wembley Way

“I am very tired but I had a very good time!” Echoed a player as England Touch travelled to its third stop in Brent thanks to the Wembley National Stadium Trust. Hosting a development session last Saturday at Wembley Stadium.

Our main aims on Saturday were to:

  • Introduce Touch to the local community;
  • Improve general skill level; and
  • Identify high level athletes for our performance pathways.

As we pumped the balls and strategically placed the cones next to our nation’s stadium, the sun beamed down and shone brightly on the synthetic turf. The day started with a Pro Training Programs © Touch specific agility and speed fitness session. The group then progressed into onto ball handling and sub-unit skills. Finishing with a full side game.

Player B “Touch is cool! I like how you can run with the ball”.
Player D “Touch is so fast, I did not know you could initiate a touch”.

A massive thank you to all the coaches, helpers and parents for making it such a great day. The session was led by School Liaisons Daryl Owens and Matthew Alan Thomas. An email has gone out to all the parents of the players identified and will forward their contacts to the Junior Lead Ben Powell.
