In the Netherlands, Feyenoord is known as the club of the people. Our youth development program, the Feyenoord Academy, is one of the finest football academies in the world having produced more players than any other club for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. We aim to provide young football players around the globe with a window of opportunity: the chance to show off their talent, to learn more about the beautiful game of football and to interact with both their peers and our qualified Feyenoord coaches. Similarly we want to contribute to the progress of football worldwide: by sharing our knowledge and expertise with coaches everywhere. We believe in delivering a fun and quality learning experience for participants in any of our international programs and where possible, in providing potentially life changing experiences and opportunities. That's Feyenoord!
In 2014 the first Feyenoord Camps Canada were organised and nearly 100 kids had a wonderful time. Toronto boys Luca and Nakye won a trial at the Feyenoord Academy in Rotterdam to show their skills. In 2015 Feyenoord Camps were organised in Toronto again. The best Dutch youth academy coaches were in the Toronto area from July 6th onwards for another two weeks of top notch soccer.
Matthew Fischer was selected for the trial at the Feyenoord Academy.
In September 2015 and March 2016 the first Feyenoord Camps were organised in Vancouver, British Columbia.
In the summers of 2016 and 2017 Feyenoord returned to Toronto and Mississauga for another two weeks of camp. Kevin Khan (2016) and Shola Jimoh (2017) were picked for the week long trial at the academy in Rotterdam.
Feyenoord Camps Canada will return to Toronto in the summer of 2018. From July 16-20th we'll be at L'Amoreaux Sports Complex (Scarborough) and from July 23-27th at Iceland (Mississauga). Feyenoord Camps Canada (GTA) are now open for registration! Visit http://dutchconnectionsfc.com for more details!
