6/6 - FCBEscola Soccer Academy Tryouts June 11 – Open to boys and girls ages 6-16 - Please share

Dear Principals:

As you may know, San Diego Unified recently announced a partnership with the Spanish soccer club FC Barcelona to bring the first ever “FCBEscolar” Soccer Academy to San Diego.  Serving as FCBEscola’s headquarters on the West Coast, San Diego Unified will be the first school district in the United States to team up with the FCBEscola program, and the first to open a world class soccer academy in its hometown.

The unique collaboration between FCBEscola and San Diego Unified will provide free one-of-a-kind monthly soccer youth development clinics, as well as a tuition-based soccer academy program. The district's students will enjoy an exclusive opportunity to attend the free clinics and, for those interested, a reduced fee to attend the year-round soccer academy will also be offered. The tuition-based academy will be open to all members of the San Diego community. Both the clinics and the academy will begin this fall.

Additional tryouts for the year-round soccer academy will be held this weekend, June 11, at Mission Bay High School starting at Noon. Tryouts are open to both boys and girls ages 6-16.

For more information and to register, please see the attached flier or visit schools.fcbarcelona.us/sandiego. Students will be offered a discounted rate (from $35 to $20) after entering the promo code “FCBSDUSD17”
