MYS Director of coaching Goran Vasic visit Portugal from March 13-22nd for his "A" Coaching license renewal. During the visit he was able to attend SL Benfica training center for 3 days, SCP Sporting Lisbon for day and FC Porto for two days. Had opportunity to watch first team practices and youth teams practices and learn how they produce top quality players from their academy to become super stars like Ronaldo, Figo, Nani and many more....
Coach Goran was extremely happy to represent and share what we do in Middletown CT and how we run our club with park and recreation, Magic travel teams and our Sporting CT premier teams. Hope that one day will have super stars coming out of our club become college players, professional soccer players or National team players one day..
"Your children's youth sports experience will end, and it may happen suddenly. Hopefully you will not look back and think, "I wish I had enjoyed it more instead of obsessing over performance, or playing time, or the team's record." Enjoy the experience; it will end too soon."
