The Zayed Sports City has announced the opening of ZSC Academy, starting with coaching for tennis and ice skating, marking another addition to the complex’s growing portfolio of community programs and events.
ZSC Academy, starting 6th September, will offer year-round coaching through a series of programmes for sports enthusiasts and elite athletes. Registration, which is now open, can be carried out by visiting the ZSC Academy page on the Zayed Sports City website.
Barry Bremner, General Manager of Zayed Sports City, said: "Our track-record of delivering impactful and memorable experiences around sports and entertainment and a growing public demand for high quality coaching has led us to launch ZSC Academy. Projects such as the Abu Dhabi Wilson Tennis Cup, Learn to Skate and our community-focused sports programmes, including National Sports Festival and TrainZSC, allow us take on this venture with confidence. I have no doubt that like these other projects, ZSC Academy will also deliver excellent programmes." Tennis Academy will provide up to 800 coaching sessions each month, serving over 250 players. The academy will offer high performance squad, private and semi-private lessons, group lessons, cardio sessions (fitness related), ladies-only sessions and lessons specially designed for children as young as three years old.
ZSC Skating Academy will build on the success of the ‘Learn to Skate’ programme, working with the prestigious Ice Skating Institute of Asia to certify coaches and develop the curriculum. The academy will provide up to 160 sessions each month, serving more than 300 individuals. These programmes will be categorised into private, semi-private and/or group lessons with maximum of eight participants. Lessons will be available for children from five years old and above.
