VSA is pleased to see three of our teams go on a trip of a lifetime! This week at Long Park, VSA wrapped up their team camp that was run with ISL Futbol who partners with FC Barcelona. At this camp the top teams were chosen by ISL along with VSA directors to go to the legendary Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, the hallowed training grounds of FC Barcelona. Their trip will have them representing VSA as they get the full Barça experience, from training with the academy teams, using the facilities, touring the grounds, attending a game, all while being trained by coaches who are a part of Agrupación Barça Jugadores or “ABJ,” the former players association at Barça.
We are so proud of the more than 100 players that attended our camp this week and all the hard work the players put into their training experience. Antonio Pinilla, former player for Barcelona and representative for ISL Futbol, was raving about the young players’ professionalism and abilities. As the selections came down, there were three teams that rose above.
Join us in congratulating U15 NPL Elite Boys, U15 NPL Elite Girls, and the full U12 girls pool. They will be bringing the red, white, and blue VSA shield over to Spain next March. We know that they will make their families, themselves and of course our club proud. This is the first of our camp and scouting opportunities with ISL Futbol, and we only look forward to it continuing to grow.
