Enderun Colleges signed a partnership agreement with Cruzeiro Asia on 16 August in Taguig to bring high-level football and futsal closer to the Filipino youth. Enderun Extension, Enderun Colleges’ arm for continuing education, will offer after-school football programs divided into four parts which will highlight each of Cruzeiro’s pillars: Love of the Game, Skills Acquisition, Game Training and Performance.
Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, or more commonly known as Cruzeiro, is one of the biggest and most successful Brazilian professional sports clubs. Mostly known for its football success in developing players such as Ronaldo and Rivaldo, Cruzeiro expanded to Southeast Asia to establish collaborations with different schools to teach football and futsal.
According to Cruzeiro Asia technical director Jonathas Candido, “There is so much potential in the Filipino youth when it comes to sports and we are here to do training programs which focus on four skills that we hope to develop in them: tactical, technical, physical and mental.”
“Futsal, as a developmental program for football, is an exciting, fast-paced sport that will teach students not just camaraderie and teamwork but getting involved in the game through strategy and critical thinking. As head coach, I’m here to develop talented students and individuals who also want to excel in the game of futsal or use it as a stepping stone to becoming a skillful football player,” Cruzeiro Asia head coach Leonardo Medeiros adds.
Enderun Extension offers a variety of workshops, short courses, certificate programs and conferences designed for anyone who may want to advance in a specific field, pursue a new field or simply explore the world through education.
