    Youth Academy Training Program U5-8 June 5, 2014
    By: Viachaslau Prakapenko from Minsk, Minsk Belarus  
    The program is fun, but some things unclear . For example, in the last part of the training costs free game 20-25 min. These guys need 20-25 minutes to play without replacements , or after a certain period of time they should be changed to one of, say, 5 minutes played , and others at this time of rest. This moment I did not understand .
