A couple of years ago, Sam had a trial for Saigon Sports Academy but he was not yet ready for team sports. And he was the littlest in the team.
In Saigon, there are quite a number of football programs. There is Saigon Sports Academy, Arsenal Schools, and a few more. There are football programs in the international schools as well.
For us our main issue is the location of the football field. On top of paying for the monthly classes, we have to worry about transportation costs. Luckily most of these football clubs have bus services.
Then just a block away from our apartment, the FC International started having Saturday training at Wonderland Park in District 7. We could walk Sam to the football field or most often, we ride our bikes.
Since it’s inside Wonderland Park, Rafa could run around as well while we wait for his brother.
Aside from fellow Filipinos, the other kids in Sam’s group are from Singapore, India, and Korea. Am not sure with the others. 😛
Right now, the cost is 80USD for 4 weeks — which is actually affordable compared to other football centers around in District 2 and District 7.
If you are interested in enrolling your child, drop by the IFC field in Wonderland Park every Saturday at 4 – 6 PM. Let your child join a trial class.
