Earthquakes Development Schools on tap for Summer 2011

Quakes, UK International partner to provide summer opportunities for young soccer players

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the club will once again offer their Earthquakes Development Schools around Northern California this summer.

Development School attendees will enjoy a weeklong camp experience that includes daily sessions with top-level coaches, capped off with a final evaluation and certificate from Earthquakes staff. All participants receive an Earthquakes t-shirt, a ticket to home match in 2011 and a private autograph session with an Earthquakes player at the graduation game. All participants are eligible for an on-field experience and the top male and female player from each session get to take part in a unique pre-game experience at the graduation game.

“We are excited to bring the Development Schools back for a third year,” said Director of Development Schools Neil Diaz. “Our goal is to continue to grow the number of Development Schools this year and to maintain a first-class program.”

The weeklong camp offers two different packages: $170 for half day and $220 for a full day. Discounts are available for full teams that wish to register.
