SIMPSON BAY – On Saturday, August 13, youth coach Dagmar Daal and U15 St. Maarten national player Michele Palella, traveled to Belgium for the Progress Sports Summer Soccer Camp.
During the Oualichi International Summer Soccer Camp, which took place last year July, Palella won a spot to train at the professional Belgian football camp. The camp in Belgium will consist of a week of trainings and social activities that will end on Friday, August 19.
Local and international coaches are part of the program and Daal, head youth coach for Oualichi, will be among the international coaches who will be exchanging knowledge and expertise and also training the kids.
This is the first time the Oualichi Women’s Soccer Association sent a player and a coach as part of their program to develop local players and also to have a platform for female coaches to progress in the football world.
Oualichi will continue this project for next year’s camp and Alejandra Corona who won the spot during the recent Oualichi summer soccer camp will be the first female youth player that Oualichi WSA will send to Belgium next year.
