What You Said About The Experience
“Fantastic time!! We have had a blast all week! Thanks to the chaperones and driver for being such great in-market hosts. Thanks GIS for putting together the most amazing football week; and thanks to you all for your wonderful company - and to the young super footballers who have given us many hours of enjoyment through their efforts! Last but not least huge appreciation to the amazing coaches: utterly superb!”
“Now that I’m finally catching up to life again, I just wanted to extend my thanks for everything you and everyone at GIS did to organize our recent trip to England. This was a perfect way to experience England for the first time and I met some amazing people that helped make the trip that much more enjoyable. You did an excellent job and we look forward to travelling with you more in the future.”
“We would like to thank GIS and the players and staff at FC Utrecht Academy for a wonderful experience in The Netherlands. We had an incredible time while gaining an appreciation for European football and the expectations of becoming an Academy player at a professional football club. My son made friendships with the players and coaches and I know he wouldn’t hesitate to visit the Academy again. He is still talking about the trip and we would love the opportunity for him to repeat the experience in the future.”
“We have just landed back in the US. I want to thank everyone at GIS for an amazing experience for the boys. It was a pleasure meeting all of you. Thank you very much for everything you did during the tour. It was by the far the best soccer experience of my life from the training sessions to the London tour to the late afternoon shopping trips.” #GIS
“Thanks GIS for a nice tour/trip which just wrapped up … the chaperones were great, coaching/facilities top shelf, people at the hotels/facilities very kind, all-around good experience!”
What Does The Future Hold?
In a word…more! As we move into the summer in North America and the winter in Oceania – our regional ID camps and National Camps will now take centre-stage and the chance to earn a place on a 2017 Elite Experience becomes available. With new partner clubs arriving on the scene this year – the chance to experience world-class coaching in world-class facilities in some of the most popular cities and countries in Europe is possible. Above all – our dedication to coaching education, player development and opportunities in sport via our professional partners remain at the forefront.
