Last December, a team from our FCA Soccer Academy went to a invitation only soccer tournament. The reason we were invited is because we had 3 players that were recognized as having quality talent and as a team we played well in a previous tournament. When our team arrived to demonstrate their skills in front of professional scouts, it wasn’t our three players that received the bulk of the attention, rather it was our 2 goalies. Elier and Yoander success-fully denied time and time again op-posing teams from scoring and only allowed 2 goals throughout the tournament.
As a reward they were invited in May to participate in an additional showcase to sign with a professional team. Our FCA Academy Athletes ALL come from poor neighbor-hoods where 73% feel crime is the best way to survive. #GodisSoGood!
