A behind-the-scenes tour of AAMI Park, appearances by Melbourne Victory players and an address by head coach Kevin Muscat were among the highlights of Melbourne Victory's Masterclass held during the July school holidays.
Over 160 aspiring young footballers descended on Melbourne Victory's training pitch, Gosch's Paddock, for a three-day ultimate coaching clinic which included learning the finer points of dribbling, striking and running with the ball with some of the sport's biggest names.
Led by former Hyundai A-League hero Grant Brebner and Westfield W-League star Gulcan Koca, participants also enjoyed special appearances from Kosta Barbarouses, Carl Valeri, Leigh Broxham, Daniel Georgievski, Jason Geria, Scott Galloway, Rashid Mahazi, Connor Pain and Dylan Murnane, who played and signed autographs throughout the three days.
Muscat addressed the group on the middle day of Masterclass.
An elite skill-based coaching clinic, Masterclass is the ultimate football program for young footballers, allowing access to Melbourne Victory senior coaching staff and the chance to meet first-team players and learn new skills and drills based on Melbourne Victory's football philosophy.
The Masterclass program also contains an advanced session for the over-14s age group including technical, tactical and on-field theory sessions based on Melbourne Victory's style of play.
