    Cayman Islands U15s work on building football futures

    Cayman Islands U15 footballers listen to instruction from a Celtic FC coach during a recent camp held in Bradenton, Florida, USA.

    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands -- The Cayman Islands is taking the 2017 CONCACAF U-15 Boys Championship very seriously.

    Earlier this month, as part of its preparations, the squad participated in an exclusive Celtic FC ID Camp at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, where the CONCACAF event will be held.  The trip was a unique opportunity for the players to develop their skills and ultimately help them earn a spot on the final roster.

    “The trip to IMG for the Celtic ID Camp was both a challenging and rewarding experience, for the boys individually and as a team, learning their strengths and where there is need for improvement,” said head coach Bruce Sigsworth.  “They were part of presentations on the attributes of a youth footballer and a Celtic Academy player, clearly seeing the commitment and mind set needed.”

    The camp, which ran from June 8-12, was comprised of field and sports psychology sessions, as well as personal instruction.

    “We were able to showcase the skills we have developed over the last four years of training together in a new environment and in front of professional coaches,” said 15-year-old team member Luke Byles.

    The next training camp will be held locally from June 30-July 3.
