U11 players invited to try out for select team

U11 players from 345 FC and Latinos FC in the 2018 CIFA league.

Some of the Cayman Islands’ top U11 footballers are being invited to try out for a Total Soccer CIFA Select Team to compete in the Bermuda Football Cup later this year.

The Bermuda Football Cup is an international tournament from 1-3 November that will include a dozen teams of (semi)-elite level, such as Paris Saint Germain from France, Chelsea FC from England, DC United and Toronto FC, representatives from Total Soccer, a new company in the Cayman Islands dedicated to the development of young players.

The tournament will be played in an 8v8 format.

In preparation for the tournament, the first try-out will take place on Sunday, 6 May from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the CIFA Centre of Excellence in Prospect. Another try out will take place at a later date to trim the squad to the traveling party.

“Players are requested to arrive 15 minutes prior to start time to allow trials to commence at the nominated time. Please wear appropriate football gear, football uniform, boots and shin paths are required. Water will be provided,” explained Peter Reijn, Total Soccer’s Youth Development and Skills Coach.

“Following the try-out, you will receive an e-mail informing you of the outcome. To be considered for the selection you must be born after 01-01-2008. A total of 12-14 players will be chosen. There will also be a stand-by list in case of player’s injuries or cancellations,” Reijn stated in a letter to players.

He said that if selected, a commitment to participate in all preparation sessions will be expected from the players. The preparation, he stated, will at least involve a minimum two training sessions per week in June and will be intensified from August/September onward.

The travel and preparation will be partially sponsored and partially paid by participants. It is anticipated that the cost for the travel and training program will be approximately $2000- $2500. However, there is no fee associated with the try-out this Sunday.
