As part its grassroots programme, Indian Super League (ISL) football franchise Delhi Dynamos on Saturday held open trials for children in the age group 11-13 from April 11 onwards.
Those born in 2002, 2003 or 2004 got an opportunity to showcase their talent in the first of these trials at the Ambedkar Stadium. The chosen ones will get a chance to be a part of a skill enrichment workshop and get to train alongside some of the best fresh talent from across the country. The participants will be given a chance to showcase their talent under the guidance of Delhi Dynamos FC’s technical team.
In 2014, the inaugural year of the Indian Super League, the Dynamos had initiated a grassroots football development program ‘Junior Dynamos’, which became one of the largest ever inter-school football tournament with participation of over 2400 players from over 180 schools.
“The Dynamos are now stepping up their game by holding Delhi’s first ever open football trials to identify and nurture real footballing talent at a young age. DDFC hopes to refine these children’s game skills, enhance their technical knowledge and ultimately mould them into professional football players,” the club said in a statement.
