Village to host Rangers camp

Professional football coaches from Scotland will be in Bermuda this month providing expert training for the Island's children.

In partnership with North Village Community Club, Rangers FC will run a weeklong camp at Bernard Park starting on March 30.

The camp is part of the five year deal that Village and Rangers signed in July 2013.

“One of the goals established from the five-year deal was to provide affordable local professional development to all the children of Bermuda between the ages of 6-16 years old who love football,” Stephen Coddington, the North Village president, said.

“Extending the opportunity to children from other clubs so that all Bermuda footballers can reap the benefits just made sense. At the end of the day, we're interested in the overall professional development of Bermuda's youth.”

Last year's camp proved so popular that Village had to turn people away, and Coddington is expecting similarly strong interest this time around. With limited space, he is encouraging people to sign up early and is looking forward to “another very successful week.”

Coddington said the club was pleased to be able to provide the Island's children with the opportunity to get professional coaching at home, but said it would not have been possible without sponsorship from EuroCar, TNT Driving and OIL Management Services Limited.
