This has been a very busy summer, full of activities and trips abroad. Our team worked hard to organize tours to expose our players and teams to unique experiences that will follow them for the rest of their lives, on and off the fields.
The U14 Girls team traveled to Guatemala for the second ever Community Service Trip that took them to several cities including Guatemala city and Antigua. They have played scrimmages and donated soccer equipment to remote villages in Santa Cruz. Coaches Arman, Stephanie and Vince led the team. Special thanks to Luis for guiding us. Go to Xela-Aid to find out more about his work. Take a look at our pictures here.
Our U14 Corinthians travel team embarked towards the United Kingdom, stopping by England and Scotland. Stepping foot at the Etihad Stadium was an amazing experience. We also toured Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh. There were competitive matches and training sessions. But the experiences gained in foreign countries where football has a longer tradition, is something that our player will cherish for the rest of their lives.

Finally, the U15/16 travel teams began their adventures in Madrid, Spain. Both teams stayed and trained at the Spanish Federation grounds and the Real Madrid City of Football. In addition, several games with local teams gave both teams a hard test. These were 10 intense days of high quality training and games. But it wasn't all work, we had the opportunity of visiting the cities of Toledo and Segovia. We ended the trip with a game at the Santiago Bernabeu between Real Madrid and Betis. Our Travel Director Matt Pilkington praised the group that represented themselves and the club with great esteem and was very respectful leaving a great impression.
