Oakville, Ontario (PRWEB) January 25, 2008
Competitive female soccer players can now take their game overseas. EduKick, Inc. (http://www.edukick.com), an international soccer exchange program, has partnered with the Spanish Football Federation to host a Girls Only Elite Soccer Camp in Madrid, Spain. Competitive female players between the ages of 14 and 24 are welcome to attend the camp, which will be held in July.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for any girl who wants to attend a high level competitive soccer training camp," said Joey Bilotta, vice president of EduKick. "There aren't many camps that are geared toward competitive female players, and we're excited to be partnering with the Spanish Football Federation's Women's National Team to help female players get the training and experience they need to excel in the collegiate and professional soccer world."
Though EduKick has long offered coed international soccer camps, this is the first year that they have offered a girls-only "elite" camp. The camp not only includes the high-level soccer training and instruction that EduKick is known for, but also participation in Northern Spain's famous youth tournament, the Donosti Cup.
"Girls have been participating in EduKick camps since our inception in 2001, and their numbers have steadily increased," Bilotta said. "We've had a high demand for higher level international soccer camps geared toward girls, and we're only too happy to create this camp in Madrid to fulfill that need."
The extensive training and tournament play are only two reasons for competitive female soccer players to consider this camp. The Spanish Football Federation is also hoping to discover talented North American players of Spanish origin through the Girls Only Elite Soccer Camp.
Players with Spanish parents or grandparents are eligible to apply for and receive a Spanish passport, which would allow them to legally play for Spain. Bilotta encourages North American female players with parents or grandparents from Spain to contact EduKick immediately.
However, he adds, this doesn't mean female players without Spanish origins shouldn't attend this unique international soccer camp.
"Attending an EduKick soccer camp or boarding school is not the same experience as attending a soccer camp at the local park in your hometown," Bilotta said. "EduKick is a travel abroad high level soccer training camp with players attending from all over the world. It's very intense, with professional coaches and in a soccer culture and atmosphere. The benefits of such an exciting experience are invaluable for a young female soccer player."
