Toluca Portland Soccer Academy hosted over 150 people at Delta Park this past Thursday (Oct. 5, 2017) for their Grand Inauguration as an official Youth Development Program for Deportivo Toluca FC.
For this event, Toluca Portland Soccer Academy excitingly hosted 4 Executive Directors from Toluca FC. Within the four were: the Director of Athletic Development, Coordinator of Scouting, Marketing Director, and Director of Youth Development Programs.
The 3 day visit of the Executives became highly productive as they met and strengthen relations with local city leaders, Oregon Youth Soccer Association, and prestigious corporations like Under Armour and Pugg.
The fun truly began out in the pitch at Delta Park where our families and players gathered to listen to the Ideology of the club and Professional tips from our professional coaches. The open Q&A between players, parents, and staff carried on for 30 minutes, then our boys were given the opportunity to showcase their talent with two friendly matches. HUGE THANKS TO both clubs who accepted to compete against our boys.
