MILL CREEK, WA–-The Covid 19 pandemic has halted soccer around the world. It’s up to clubs to reach out and stay connected with their players. Dagi Kesim is doing just that with youth side Gala FC as the founder of that club and Steelheads Technical Director of Soccer takes to the internet with live teaching sessions.
The video instructions have seen many Gala FC players jump online to view and also participate with feedback and questions. Steelhead players are also joining the viewership in good numbers.
The live sessions are archived and can be viewed on Gala FC Facebook.
Kesim is also uploading technique videos to the new Gala FC YouTube channel.
In a recent live session Kesim had two special guests to share their stories. Ömer Faruk Kaya is a 25-year-old striker who featured for several years with Turkish club Besiktas. The professional footballer visited with Kesim and shared his story and tips for making it as a pro.
Later in the same video Kesim chatted with a US player, Everett born defender Jalen Crisler. Dagi trained Crisler, who attended Gonzaga and is now with Forward Madison. Jalen went to Archbishop Murphy High School.
Steelhead 2019 MVP Rio Alcorta (Inglemoor, Pacific Lutheran) was also a recent guest. In that session Kesim and Alcorta chat about the 2019 SnoCo FC championship season. He’s joined in the same chat by Gala FC Pro Focus captain Jason Isaksen, (Stanwood HS) who played and scored for the Steelheads back in 2017. See that video below.
