In a partnership between the Bermuda Football Association and the Bermuda Brazilian Football School, an Invitational Talent Identification Showcase has been announced.
Calvin Blakendal from the Bermuda Brazilian Football School said, “We are proud to announce our first Annual Talent Identification Showcase (ATIS). This Talent ID Academy Camp provides our student athletes with an on island affordable opportunity to showcase their potential to a group of highly qualified and experienced coaches. Our student athletes will have realistic opportunities to receive overseas training, trials and academic bursaries.”
The ATIS will feature coaches/scouts from Europe and North America who are staff coaches at academies, academic institutions, scouts or former pro players. Thus far, the incoming coaches have networks/ and/or coach in the Netherlands (Holland), Canada, USA, Portugal, England & Scotland.
Via the Bermuda Football Association and BBFS partners, each club can register the best 4 players in the U9 to U17 division. The players will be assigned to two groups; advanced and intermediate and will be challenged during the 5 day showcase. The ATIS will focus on talent identification, player development, academics, life-skills and international opportunities. This is an affordable/realistic on island opportunity for a large pool of players to improve and share the wealth of training philosophies/opportunities.
