The Guam Football Association is inviting all youth players born between 2008 and 2011 to take part in an open house and talent identification camp.
The open house will introduce youths to types of sessions put together for elite selection teams, will take place from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. July 19, 23, 26 and 30 at the GFA National Training Center, according to news release.
Players must register online by clicking on the Elite Selection Team Web banner on GFA’s official website at https://guamfa.com.
“The sessions are simple: play football, enjoy football, learn football,” said Dominic Gadia, GFA elite player development officer. “The open house event is an opportunity for players, parents and coaches to experience GFA’s training sessions without the process of a tryout or scouting invitation.
There is no maximum number of players. Although it is not mandatory to attend all four sessions, coaches are encouraging players to attend as many sessions as possible, the release stated.
After, a total of 80 players will be invited and accepted to the 2021 fall cycle of the elite selection team for both boys and girls, which begins in August and will run twice a week on Mondays and Fridays at GFA.
The first benefit is that our program is free to join,” Gadia said. “Our program has the fields, the staff, equipment, and network to bring players to the highest aspirations they have.”
Coaches at all levels of the sport are invited to see how sessions are created and executed on the pitch, the release stated. Those interested in mentorship from GFA’s internationally-licensed coaches are encouraged to register.
