The Philippine national women’s football team are currently in Tubod, Lanao del Norte to conduct a weeklong football training camp for children at the Mindanao Civic Center.
The camp proper will run from May 10 to May 15 and will include more than 300 boys and girls aged 10-11 years old. Alternating sessions will be conducted by the Malditas on the pitch and in classrooms.
“We do this because we love the game, and we love to teach kids,” wrote Malditas coach Ernie Nierras in a Facebook post.
“If we are able to inspire just one child, the whole trip will be worth it.”
Local football coaches are also expected to attend the camp.
“I’m sure the coaches attending this activity will have the time of his/her coaching life,” said Nierras.
“They will not only get to meet the Malditas but also get to learn and contribute their knowledge.”
While in Lanao del Norte, the Malditas are also scheduled to continue their daily training sessions, as part of their buildup for various competitions.
