European Experience for Rochester's Empire United U-17 Girls
This summer, Empire United Soccer Association's U-17 girls team from Rochester, NY took the trip of a lifetime to Barcelona, Spain that was an unforgettable soccer experience for the players.
While in Spain, the team played friendly games against high-level Spanish teams from the Barcelona area. The Spanish teams hosted a post-game social for the Empire United girls which gave them a chance to socialize with the Spanish girls, learn about their culture and the Spanish lifestyle, and share their passion for soccer.
Off the field, the team had the opportunity to take in the sights of Barcelona including Las Ramblas, La Sagrada Familia and the Nou Camp stadium, home to FC Barcelona and a natural highlight of the tour. Upon their return to the US, team manager Judy Zornow commented, "Everyone had an incredible time! They adored Clive (tour guide) - he did a great job. All the comments were extremely positive."
The trip was organized by Premier International Tours, a leader in organizing international soccer tours for youth teams. For more information on their tours and programs, and to book your team on a soccer adventure of a lifetime, visit their website at www.PremierInternationalTours.com.
