One of our women players has just secured her dream of playing football in America after being offered a Sport’s Scholarship in Miami. Last year, Bruna made the huge decision to move to a top independent school in England to better develop her football ability with the aspirations to secure a place at a top university in America.
Bruna had previously played in Portugal and Dubai and it was most recently that she was training at a top academy facility in Dubai. However, as the best female player here she soon realised that she needed to move to England to fulfil her aspirations. Bruna needed a soccer school for women that was much more challenging if she was to achieve her goals of playing in the US. The academy director reached out to our team and we recommended the UK’s leading independent football boarding school for its women’s football programme.
Initially, it was difficult as she was training alongside bigger, quicker and more technical players (including the men’s team). However, with the efforts of top UEFA license coaches, an Ex-Premier League player/manager plus an ex-professional turned S&C coach at the leading football boarding school Bruna had joined, she soon began to gain confidence and develop physically. For some, this may have been too much but Bruna embraced the physical challenge as it made her adapt her game becoming stronger and much quicker which served her well when playing alongside other women.
Joining this elite football school for women not only helped take her football ability to the next level, it has helped with her academic performance. The school has helped Bruna with her applications for Universities in America as she was able to study a University Foundation Programme which offers qualifications transferable to the American University Academic System.
It took Bruna a lot of confidence and determination to move away from home and outside of her comfort zone. Seeing her step up and develop, holding her own within the men’s team at the elite football boarding school we recommended has been truly fantastic to watch and we can only wish her even more successes in the future as she ply’s her trade in the US! Well done Bruna, keep it up!
