What is the CHALLENGE?
The CHALLENGE is a program that we offer in conjunction with Europa Challenge (EC) and the Seedorf Talent Development Group (STDG). Our CHALLENGE program is designed to provide the environment where players can work towards achieving their maximum potential, but it can't end there, so we are also facilitating opportunities for them to realize that potential in match play against the top youth players in Holland, Italy, Suriname and other countries.
Who can join the Challenge?
You cannot tryout for it or join through traditional club methods. This is by invitation only. Once a player has caught the eye of one of our programs scouts they must then display all the characteristics that make up the foundation of a great player before being invited. Just like all soccer organizations we will have players at all levels of advancement.
When and Where will we train, who will train us?
Challenge players will train a minimum of 5 training sessions in one time per week in Europe. In addition to the weekly training Challenge players are expected to attend annual Italy, Holland or Suriname Tour training provided by top professionals.
Will we play games as a team?
YES, Yes Yes……. Challenge players will participate in games throughout the year as a team. They may come in the form of local friendly matches, local tournament play, and of course they will play during the bi-annual train and play trips aka Holland Tour.
Did we say other countries?
Yes, we did. Players will need to have a passport. While it is not required to take part in activities that are taking place stateside, you will need a passport to travel and take part in our international training and games.
What are the costs?
Unfortunately, we won’t be able to give you a fixed answer here as cost will vary based on the different destinations that we will train and play in. We will do our best to list the various things that you will need to pay for throughout the year.
