Off to Italy!
Three of our Football Boys, Jazmin Stapelfeldt, Lianda Ngcobo and Simbarashe Sibanda, are off to Italy in the July holidays!
The three Boys are members of the Euro Soccer Schools and they have been invited to the Real Vicenza/Genoa CFC Football Training Clinic and Camp which is being held in Vicenza, Italy from 8 to 16 July.
Real Vicenza SSD is an official partner of the oldest Serie A club, Genoa CFC 1893 (the oldest Club in Italy) and the the Real Vicenza/Genoa CFC training clinic camp is a collaboration between the two which led to the creation of the Summer ID training camps. The directors, scouts and coaches of both clubs work together, to not only improve the players’ individual skills but also to identify young talent. Selected players are asked to stay for an extended period and work with the coaches to continue their development at their International Academy.
The International Academy is an exclusive project that has been designed to cater to promising young footballers wanting a career pathway and to assist players to develop their skills and acclimatize to the conditions and the level of European football.
The boys are indeed privileged, and obviously talented, to be invited to attend this camp. All their expenses are covered, bar the flights to Italy.
Players and teams benefit from a weekly set schedule of training, including on-field technical and functional training, classroom tactical and psychological sessions, gym fitness sessions, strength and conditioning workouts, swimming pool regeneration practice, and organized team match play, all under the guidance of UEFA and USSF qualified professional youth development coaches. Plus, some of the most unbelievable sightseeing outings are offered to truly understand the culture and the passion of the local people.
The club is based in the city of Vicenza (Veneto), a thriving and cosmopolitan city, with a rich history and culture, and many museums, art galleries, piazzas, villas, churches.
Enjoy the camp, Gentlemen, and enjoy Italy!
