Colaiste Stiofan Naofe men’s soccer announce participation in USA Annandale Adidas Cup 2012

Gavin has been selected as part of a squad of 18 players to travel toWashingtonDCUSAbetween the 8th – 14th March 2012 to compete in the Annandale Adidas Cup showcase. Teams will compete from North and South America as well as various teams from acrossEurope. Gavin will be on show to a huge number of University Scholarship scouts. Colaiste Stiofan Naofe will also play a Division 1 NCAA University during the 6 day tour.

The aim of this tour is to impress the100+Universitycoaches that are attending to get a student athlete scholarship from a College/University while playing in this tournament. Gavin will be playing 3 games and a semi final and final if Colaiste Stiofan Naofe qualify from the group. They will also play a friendly game againstGeorgeMasonUniversity, who are an NCAA division 1 team.

So far Colaiste Stiofan Naofe are the only team outside the U.S that are participating and hopefully that will draw big number of coaches and spectators to their games.

All 18 players selected must complete their SAT's (American version of the Leaving Cert). This is vital as this is the first thing the scouting coaches will ask for. Another thing asked for are fitness test results which we've been doing throughout year in CSN and also a recommendation from the CSN coaches in regards of attendance in college and training.

We wish Gavin every success in this venture
