Tennessee SC Sends Team to Feyenoord
Travel Dates: October 13-22, 2017
Tennessee Soccer Club is sending their first team to Rotterdam, Holland on October 13th in accordance to their partnership with Feyenoord (https://www.feyenoord.com).
Feyenoord is considered one of the top Youth Soccer Academies in Europe. Feyenoord has earned an International reputation for its high quality. The ultimate endorsement for Feyenoord’s development process came at the 2014 World Cup when they supplied more home-grown players than any other club worldwide. Feyenoord’s professional team is currently participating in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League which is known as the top club competition annually.
15 TSC players and additional members of their families will travel overseas for 10 days starting next Friday (Oct 13). The team will experience a once in a lifetime soccer journey. Coaches Mike Otto, Jimmy Drain and Ruben Arcega will lead the boys while on the trip. The team’s itinerary includes attending 4 professional soccer matches, participating in 3 scheduled games against teams from across the country, and partaking in 7 team training sessions run by the Feyenoord Academy Staff Coaches. The boys will be exposed to first hand, European soccer while learning from some of the best coaches in Holland.
The team is made up of players from TSC’s 2005, 2006, and 2007 boys’ age groups. The following players will be representing the club in Holland.
Eli Arcega Jael Arcos
Jair Arcos Yago de Ledesma

Along with the soccer experiences that will be offered over 10 days in Rotterdam, the group has other team building activities planned that include footie golf, city-wide tours, and potentially visiting the Rotterdam Zoo.
This opportunity certainly promises to be a trip the players and their families will always remember. Tennessee SC expects this to be the first of many trips working directly with Feyenoord to send full teams to witness the full Holland soccer experience.
