Global Exposure

We offer an experience for young players to test their skills against players around the world, create friendships, and learn new techniques emerging from different parts of the world. Our trips offer first hand experience playing internationally against like minded peers that share the love and passion of soccer.

FAQs

Why does CALYSM travel overseas to train and to play soccer?

Our goal is to expose youth soccer players to different coaching methodologies, soccer concepts, ways to live and feel the game, competition, and ultimately expose them to the world. I want our players to learn new ideas about the game and also get different feedback from coaches they do not know. I want our players to be taken outside their comfort zone and be challenged by working with new coaches; training in a different atmosphere with foreign players who can challenge them and push them to become better players. Another important concept I really value is bonding and camaraderie we want to help our players to create long lasting relationships with their teammates, roommates, and other players attending the camp. Culturally I want our players to get to know more about the world outside the US.

Why did you choose Spain as a travel destination?

There are two different factors why I choose Spain to be the first country where our organization would take players and coaches. The first factor is of course soccer itself. I personally think that Spain as country has dominated the world of soccer in the last fifteen years because about thirty years ago they decided to invest in their youth academies and clubs. Nowadays, you can find Spanish soccer players all over Europe playing in the most important teams in the world. Spanish people love soccer and this love is showed in the way they train, play, and live the game. I want our players to be exposed to this atmosphere. Spanish coaches are really passionate and enthusiastic, they are really good in transmitting their energy to the players. Spain’s rich culture as well as beautiful landscape was another factor why I choose to take players to this country.

Who are the coaches training the players?

All coaches directing the training overseas are from the regions we travel to. We want our players to be exposed to different coaching styles and methodologies. Most of these coaches hold UEFA licenses; have had played at a high level; and currently work with recognized youth programs as well.

What are the ages to be able to participate?

Ages for our abroad programs are boys and girls primarily 10 to 18.

What are the benefits of your trips compared to doing summer camps and tournaments in the United States?

First, our summer camps take place in cities and countries where soccer is a tradition and part of the culture. We want our athletes to have a professional soccer experience from the moment they wake up to the moment they go to bed. Culturally we want our participants to be exposed to different people and learn about and from other cultures. Youth soccer players attending our soccer camps will benefit compared to players attending camps held within the US from being exposed to different methodologies and coaches; get lots of international exposure; and learn about other regions in the world.

TESTIMONIALS

” The soccer camp in Salou, Spain has helped me to become a better player. During training coaches emphasized concepts such as supporting angles, proper touches on the ball, triangles, and creating numerical advantage. My “changing pace” skills have become almost automatic now because this camp provided many drills consisting on lots of repetitions. I would definitely recommend this camp to others because it helped me to sharpen my skills as a player, meet and play with foreign players, and experience Spanish culture.”

“The trip to Spain was absolutely amazing. The country itself is beautiful and just to be able to travel to that country and see different places was amazing. The soccer was even better. The training was tough, but really fun. I think as a player this helped me develop so much. It is a different style of play in Spain, and to learn that from both Spanish coaches and players, it made for a great experience. It was the trip of the lifetime, and i will never forget it!”

Nolan Garabo

“My son and I took a chance with Carlos and went to Spain for soccer training in Marbella. It was an experience that we will not forget. The training, fields and culture that we experienced was like no other. I can say that it was the most memorable soccer experience that my son has ever had. I highly recommend this trip!”
