BENEFITING: SIERRA MOUNTAIN SOCCER CLUB
EVENT DATE: Apr 03, 2014
Barcelona Nor-Cal Girls U-17 Our girls Club Soccer team, Barcelona Nor-Cal , has been honored with an invitation to train in Barcelona, Spain for a week in April. For 7 days, 14 girls will train twice a day, play 3-5 games and attend a Professional FC Barcelona game. This is an extremely important opportunity since no other team has ever been invited from Truckee.
For the girls, ages 15-17, this is a great opportunity to train, interact and share the field with other players and coaches from other cultures. The skills our athletes and coaches learn will be passed onto our local Club teams, furthering their abilities to perform at a much higher level of competition. Many of these girls have the goal of playing in College, enhancing our reason for experiencing a higher level of play. They have attended College I.D. camps at UCSC, CAL, UCSD and Point Loma to name a few. The international training and experience in Barcelona will further their chances of securing a spot on a college team.
Our hope and belief is that this will become an annual invitation for our players in Truckee so that all of our Club athletes, boys and girls, will have the opportunity to train in Spain.
