(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The most talented youngsters from Oman Sail's Omantel Youth Programme will find out what it will take to be part of a professional national team when they are put through their paces in the first Youth Squad Training Camp in Sur from June 9-15.

The eleven youngsters selected as members of the Oman Sail National Youth Squad will spend eight days at the Sur Sailing School where they will receive intensive training in sailing, fitness and theory from a team of Oman Sail youth coaches. ''This is a real camp which will take them away from their homes and families for a whole week so it will be a test in more ways than one,'' said Abdul Aziz al Shidi, Oman Sail's youth pathway coach.

''Our objective is to get them into the lifestyle and mindset of a professional athlete and to learn how to be a fullyfledged member of a team which will stand them in good stead when they compete in international championships and beyond. We want to improve their sailing skills but we also want to teach them what it takes to be part of a team so they will learn to take responsibility for themselves and for their equipment. We are taking all the boats “ ten Optimists and one Laser - and ribs up from Muscat and they will have to take care of them. ''They will learn to be better athletes and help each other to achieve their own goals as well the team targets.

This will equip them to represent Oman when they are competing in international competitions and to become role models who infuse others with their passion and commitment when they return to their sailing centres to share their experiences.'' A typical day at the Youth Squad Training Camp will comprise a session in the gym working on fitness to start with followed by training on the water with boat handling and speed exercises then a break for lunch.

A session of theory and more training in the afternoon will make way in the evening for some fun activities designed to foster team spirit. ''This camp is not just about sailing but about providing a wellrounded education on sailing that will equip these youngsters for international competition and beyond that for a career in professional sport or indeed any professional occupation,'' said Oman Sail CEO David Gra
