Jeff Beljour, one of the players from our Youth Academy of Excellence, will be attending the Florida Kraze Krush (FKK) College ID Camp; at their facility in Orlando, Florida, from February 26- 28, 2016. The camp, which is geared at identifying potential players for college scholarships, is very intensive and involves college coaches from all over the United States. During the Camp the players will undergo rigorous training sessions; and assigned to various teams for competitive games, where they will be assessed by these coaches for possible scholarships.
Jeff was one of the players whose talents caught the attention of scouts visiting the Island last year. He has been with the Academy Program in excess of 7 years and he is currently the captain of the U 18 team; which are participating (and leading) in the Provo Premier League. As a central defender, Jeff possesses exemplary ability to read the game; has remarkable pace and is versatile in his wide passing range.
‘We are very happy to know that another talent from our Academy of Excellence is being given the opportunity to prove his potential beyond our shores. This is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the coaches and players in the program. As President of the TCIFA, I am very heartened at the prospects of these young people; as it not only argues well for football in the Turks and Caicos Islands and across the region, but for the development of the sport worldwide'; words from our President, Sonia Bien-Aime.
