After a successful SoccerRockz Winter Tournament, we decided to carry the momentum into the New Year.
The start of February saw our SoccerRockz Barca and Juve teams invited to attend three local Professional Academies to showcase their talent.
West Bromwich Albion FC - Friday 3rd February,
Aston Villa FC - Sunday 5th February
Leicester City FC - Monday 6th February.
The weekend was planned with precision by our U'6 Head Coach Kev Doran, with our SoccerRockz Stars sporting their brand new Kits which had kindly been supplied by our generous sponsors.
Throughout the weekend the boys were in great form and played some exceptional football, they battled hard and were not all fazed by their opposition or surroundings. We were up against some very well organized teams with a number of gifted young players. This was not only a huge learning curve for our SoccerRockz players but also an insight into Academy Life for our parents and coaches.
The weekend was a huge success and we were delighted with not only the footballing performance of our SR Stars but also they way in which they conducted themselves and represented us both on and off the pitch.
We have received lots of positive feedback from all of the Professional Clubs we have visited and are also delighted that a number of our players have been invited back for training with a view to taking the next step on their footballing journey.
The next event will be the SoccerRockz Spring Tournament.
