CAMP PORTUGAL

Camp du Portugal

Le principal objectif du camp de soccer est de fournir une expérience sécuritaire, amusante et globalement incroyable à chaque athlète qui rejoint le programme. Erin Mills Soccer Club s'est associé à Future Soccer et SoccerSoul, des sociétés qui ont des partenariats avec de nombreux grands clubs de football professionnels au Portugal - FC Porto, SL Benfica, CD Feirense, FC Famalicão et Leixões SC, pour n'en nommer que quelques-uns.

Il y aura quatre matches amicaux avec quatre de ces équipes (de groupe d'âge égal ou raisonnablement proche) où les joueurs joueront contre eux sur les terrains d'entraînement des clubs professionnels. Les matchs amicaux contre des équipes comme celles-ci ne sont pas seulement de formidables expériences de développement pour les joueurs, mais aussi des opportunités de présentation incroyables. Ces clubs de football professionnels sont très compétitifs et jouent dans les compétitions internationales de jeunes les plus prestigieuses à travers le monde.

Les participants au camp passeront 7 jours au Portugal à l'hôtel HF Tuela, un hôtel bien situé dans la ville de Porto. L'hôtel offre la sécurité, des chambres confortables et propres et une salle à manger commune.

Le programme Portugal Camp va au-delà de la simple confrontation avec des clubs de football professionnels de haut niveau; il comprend des visites et des événements pour maximiser le divertissement des joueurs. Les joueurs visiteront les cinq célèbres ponts de la Ribeira de Porto, un match de football en direct, le parc central de Porto, le Crystal Palace, la ville de Braga, le Bom Jesus De Braga, le château de Guimaraes, les jardins de Serralves, une journée de Padbol (un sport amusant qui est bien connu en Europe), ainsi que le centre-ville de Porto et les centres commerciaux environnants. Les visites prévues donneront aux joueurs l'opportunité d'en apprendre davantage sur le Portugal et la culture portugaise.

Si une équipe est inscrite ensemble, leur coach les accompagnera également pendant le voyage et les assistera dans la formation et le développement.

Flight and Ground Transportation


Airfare Round-Trip

One of the many great advantages of our program is that we can include round-trip airfare in the final price. In most cases, other sporting events companies do not include airfare in their price at all, and it is the responsibility of the participants or their soccer clubs to look for tickets and book them on their own. This provides a major convenience to clubs, participants, and their families.

Participants will leave the Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), and will arrive at the

O Porto Airport (OPO) in Portugal. There will be one program coordinator at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) to gather all participants, organize everything, and accompany them to Portugal.

Registrants have the option of booking their own flights, but will be responsible for their own traveling if that is the case. Flight arrival times in Portugal must be made known to Future Soccer prior to the Portugal Camp in order to accommodate athletes with ground transportation.

Ground Transportation

There will be a bus or vans upon the athletes’ arrival in Portugal. The bus / vans will transport players from the Airport to the HF Tuela Hotel, and will also be the vehicle of transportation for sight-seeing events and friendly matches.

Besides going to the same places as the players, there will be additional attractions, not limited to: famous Porto wine tasting, caves of Porto, Foz do Porto, Dona Elvira restaurant (prestigious restaurant in Braga).
