Remember the movie, Bend it like Beckham
? Now, San Antonio teens can get the chance to show off their own soccer skills at an exclusive camp.
The Coca-Cola Soccer Camp is coming to Texas and it's looking for teenagers 13 to 15 years old to participate. The camp will run November 16-18 in Houston.
It will feature training by soccer superstar Marcelo Balboa, Olympic gold medal winner Shannon MacMillan, and a team of 20 international soccer coaches. The camp is designed to give teenagers an opportunity to share their love for the game, regardless of skill level. The soccer camp activities are free of charge. If needed, winners can get free transportation, lodging, meals, uniforms and training equipment.
Interested teens have to submit an essay by October 4, describing their passion for soccer. Contestants may also be nominated by a family member, friend, or teacher. Only 300 teens from Dallas, Houston and San Antonio will be chosen.
