It was a special day for the young players and the parents who came in full numbers beating the chill of a cold January morning to meet and interact with one of the most promising player of the Indian team.

 

The event started with a fireside chat with Aditi. The young players and the parents were all ears to hear the exciting journey of this young professional player. Aditi shared that she was always an ‘outdoor person’ and played multiple sports in school including taekwondo, tennis and basketball in addition to football. Soon the love of the beautiful game grew and she knew that this was the sport she found maximum joy in. She regaled the audience with anecdotes of her experiences with the National team and also as a member of West Ham United Ladies Football Club, in England. Aditi reiterated the importance of progressive age appropriate training at the formative stage and was delighted to see that PSG Academy provides world class training opportunities to kids right here at their doorstep.

Aditi spent time with the kids on the pitch and was an active participant in the goalkeeper training session that was being conducted. Towards the end of the session as expected Aditi was inundated with requests for pictures, selfies and autographs and she was very happy to pose with them and wish them the very best.

The young players and the parents were thrilled to see one of the favorite professional football players in their midst and enjoyed the experience immensely.
