Vanuatu U-15 Prepares for Singapore Youth Olympic Games

Vanuatu U-15 National Team are currently preparing themselves to take part in the first ever Youth Olympic Games that will take place in Singapore in August this year.
The team’s head coach, Mr. Etienne Mermer said he is now changing the environment of the training from a normal training pitch to sand, to improve their overall skill & control, as well as build their leg strength.

Training on the sand is also good for keepers because of the soft landings, and the greater effort required for movement.
“I believe that with this extra training on the beach, the boys can be ready to take part in the tournament in Singapore” said Mermer.

OFC has selected Vanuatu U-15 boys and PNG U-15 girls out from it's 11 member countries to represent Oceania in this tournament.

Mr. Etienne Mermer and the team’s Assistant Coach, Wilson August, are now in Singapore to participate in the Youth Olympic Games Draw.

The two coaches will be back in Vanuatu tomorrow night.
