Summer Academy 2017 was a record number summer! We had the largest group of collegiate athletes in the history of the Academy. And we celebrated 20 years of the Chicago office.
67 collegiate athletes and staff came together from 20 different schools and nine different countries. They formed an authentic community where growth and encouragement were the norm! The impact was felt by literally thousands, both in the U.S. and Brazil! And 8 of our Academy players were baptized!
Our players had the opportunity to coach over 1,000 boys and girls in our soccer camps, and then to lead more than 10% to a personal faith in Jesus Christ! Preparation for the Fall season was also a priority! 100% of our Academy players in their fitness scores over the course of the summer - sending them back ready for their school soccer season!
