Ismael's Story

My passion is soccer. I discovered my passion while watching a soccer match between Raja Casablanca, a small club in Morocco, and Bayern Munich, one of the hardest oppositions in the clubs history. They booked their spot in the final in one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world after defeating the Brazilian team, Atletico Mineiro. The stage was set for the final was to take place in Casablanca. The first half began twenty minutes in 1-0 Bayern, forty-five minutes 2-0 Bayern. By the ninety minute mark, Bayern took the trophy home. Despite the defeat, this small club taught me that anyone can accomplish anything with the right mentality. This is what I try to bring in to every soccer game.

Attending US Sports Nike Soccer Camp will teach me a lot about the player that I am and the type of players that are out there. This opportunity will give me the chance to meet new people and these great coaches will teach me how to become a better overall player. This camp can also help me with my technique and form.

A Note from Mr. Gaffney, Ismael's Teacher

Ishmael loves the sport of soccer, and wants to push himself to be the best player he can be. I believe US Sports Nike Soccer Camp will help him with skills both on and off the soccer field. This program will help Ismael assess his skills in relation to other players and let him know where he stands. Then, he can go back home and work on the weaknesses of his game, if he has any. I also think that being away from home will teach him invaluable listening, speaking, and other social skills which will prepare him for college.
