Every summer our World Elite Talents travel to foreign location to experience a new culture and to exhibit their talent to local youth. This year we were invited by the Bermuda Athletic Association to attend a local soccer camp. Every young soccer player dreams of being the next Ronaldo someday, but not everyone has what it takes to make it happen. Hakeem, Jenno, Solomon and Xavi trained and played with the local youth during a 10-day trip. Playing soccer together allowed the local youth to relate to the World Elite Talents and hopefully they were inspired by their peers to make their soccer dreams come true.
For us it’s important that our talents learn about the local culture and gain a better understanding of what it is like to live like a pro. What does it mean to be a world class soccer player? We teach them simple things like answering interview questions, signing autographs, or how they should behave at local events. The trip was a mix of hard work and fun but most importantly; they did it together.
