On the May 2-4 weekend the SIGMA A1 squad will have the opportunity to display their skills in front of a handful of US University coaches who will be making the trip to Toronto to scout this class of players. The 3 day period will see the squad participate in 2-3 matches along with a training session in front of the staff representing the University of Central Florida and the University of Denver. The matches will provide an opportunity to the few remaining 2008 graduates to make an immediate impression along with providing the 2009 graduating class of SIGMA some vital exposure in their search for their post-secondary education and further competition in the sport of soccer.
Sigma Technical Director, Bobby Smyrniotis is very pleased with the schedule for this weekend and the attention his squad has received from south of the border, "We are very happy to have these coaches make the trip to Toronto to view our boy's and gain a better understanding of the soccer players in this region. We are happy that our good friends at Winstars Academy have accepted our invitation to play, which will provide a very competitive series of matches. It is one of the many times we have provided our boys with exposure to US Universities over the past year, including last weekend when UAB (University Alabama Birmingham) visited. We will be having 2-3 friendly matches over this time period and provide the US coaches ample time to view all of our players who aspire to move to the next level of this beautiful game. We have gained a strong reputation in the US for being home to quality talents, and this is very positive for organizing such events in the future."
The Sigma A1 is set to announce its first scholarship player in the coming weeks and is looking forward to a very strong class of 2009 players who are already making an impression in the NCAA soccer circle.
