Rapids 08B Select Central Team To Travel & Compete In England
Posted by: Ben Martisius l CRYSC Communications Manager
The Rapids 08B Select Central team is headed overseas to England this summer, where they will visit and compete with youth academy programs from famed English Premier League and EFL Championship clubs.
The team intends to participate in a minimum of three games and three training sessions between July 20 – 27, with options for more playing opportunities. The boys can also look forward to meeting and training with ex-professionals and soccer experts, who have made their names known throughout the soccer world.
Using connections from his time spent playing and coaching in England, Coach Tom Poole, is excited to take the 08B Select Central team on this once-in-a-lifetime trip to experience a new culture, grow as a team, and play against some of the top youth programs in the world.
All funds raised will be split among the team in an effort to help offset costs for players. This is a team effort that will ensure every player has the opportunity to travel with their team and experience the beautiful game outside of the United States.
