The Goan club continued their philanthropist activities as they now toiled to put up a seminar for school students...

Salgaocar FC, as part of their community development initiative, held a seminar on fitness and nutrition for the students of Arya Dayanand High School, Neura and their parents. The club is also focused on promoting football among school students thereby providing them a platform to excel.

Sunil Karmalkar, trainer for the SFC senior team, spoke about the type of diet and rest required in order to become a professional footballer. The principal of Arya Dayanand High School, Neura Mr. Madhav Khyarvi stressed on the importance of sports in today’s life and encouraged the students to take up various sports.

Many of the school students were overjoyed by the presence of SFC’s Augustine Fernandes, taking autographs and pictures of the robust defender.

This was Salgaocar FC’s second visit to a school after having conducted a similar session at Loyola High School, Margao. They are looking to take this programme to several schools across Goa in the coming months, starting with their home city of Vasco da Gama.
