I will be the first to admit, my European soccer I.Q. could use a little boost. But there may be some help for me yet. Today, we shared that Walt Disney World Resort is teaming with IdeaSport, LLC and one of the biggest names in soccer to host a soccer program for youth athletes at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex!
Through this multi-year agreement, the program presented by LaLiga and Walt Disney World Resort will provide a holistic approach to soccer education with proven, year-round training and development for youth soccer athletes, developing them on and off the field. It will also offer training for coaches and officials.
Open enrollment begins June 1-4, and training and development will begin later that month – just as many kids are getting out of school for the summer.
It’s a rare opportunity for aspiring youth soccer players to learn the Spanish style of soccer from world-class coaches, players and officials associated with LaLiga, the Spanish professional soccer league that’s one of the most popular in the world. In addition, this is expected to bring multiple events and exhibitions to the complex each year, including a tournament, on-site events with current and former LaLiga players, summer camps with current and former players and coaches, visits from LaLiga legends and ambassadors, and more events.
