CWSC Team Spirit and Team Arsenal returning from Brazil

CWSC on CTV News http://calgary.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=591443

Calgary West Soccer Club U12 Girls Team Spirit and U12B Team Arsenal, alongside Technical Director Henry Hauesler, Head Coaches Juan Martinez Alonso and Andre Reis, and Executive Director ,Mary Liao, attended the Go CUP tournament in Goiania, Brazil and futsal training in Rio de Janeiro, from March 26 to April 12.

The GoCup is a 7v7 tournament sponsored by the Brazilian Soccer Federation 7v7 department. Over 2000 players, 126 teams from 14 countries from Europe, Brazil, South America, Central America, North America, and Africa attended the tournament.  Top professional academy clubs such as Estudiantes from Argentina, Sporting Lisbon  and Benfica from Portugal, Alianza Lima, from Peru, Caracas from Venezuela, Colo Colo from Chile, Norte America from Ecuador,  and Fluminense, Flamengo, Goias, Botofogo, Vasco de Gama, Cruzeiro, Meninos da Paraiba from Brazil, along with the “school teams” of FC Barcelona, Boca Juniors, RCD Espanyol,  Botofogo, Flamengo, and “community teams” from the local Goiana city, sent teams to compete in U8 to U12 age groups.

Team Spirit won their first game 3-0 against Campinas ( a local Goiania team), lost 4-0 to Escola Flamengo Palmas (a school team of Flamengo), lost 4-0 against SAC Ingleses (a team from Santos, Brazil), tied Aparecidense ( a local team from Goiania) 2-2, and lost 4-3 to RCD Espanyol ( a school team associated with Reial Club Deportiu Espanyol de Barcelona.  Moving on to the Bronze medal round, Team Spirit was knocked out of the competition 3-1 by Flugoiania.

Of special note, the Go Cup is open to both girls and boys, however, it is populated mostly by boys teams. Three Brazilian girls who play with boys teams in Goias Esporte Clube joined Team Spirit to compete in the Go Cup. Only Team Spirit and 3 -4 other girls on boys teams comprised female participation in the tournament.  In Brazil, girls do not have the opportunity to play organized soccer until U15 (around age 14).   Going with an all girls team to Brazil supported the aspirations of young girls in Brazil, and it also provided an opportunity for our girls to understand Canada's commitment to equal opportunities for girls in soccer.

Team Arsenal U12 B, was joined by 7 Brazilian boys from the school teams of Goias Esporte Clube. They lost their first game, 8-0 against Norte America from Ecuador, and lost their second game 9-0 against Estudiantes from Argentina, won their third game, 2-0 against Meninos da Paraiba from Brazil, won their fourth game, 2-1 against Esplanada Society, and lost 2-1 against Independente Rio Verde. Team Arsenal moved into the Bronze medal round with a 2-0 win against Bare Bola, won their next game 4-0 against Flugoiana, 2 local teams from Goiania, and made it to the Bronze medal final, played at the Goias Stadium the next morning. They lost only 3-1 to Esc Flamengo C. Novas (a school team of the Flamengo professional club) and won the silver medal of the Bronze division. Well done Team Arsenal!

The CWSC players also participated in a Futsal training program in Rio de Janeiro, conducted by professional youth academies of Fluminense, Vasco de Gama and a social club Marina de Barras.

CWSC believes in learning from the best, and exposing its players and coaches to a standard of play that can inspire to play at the highest international standards.  CWSC has sought to bring international education experiences to the club, whether by bringing international specialists to Calgary to educate and train our players in Calgary, or taking players and coaches to world renown soccer and futsal countries such as Brazil.  In August 2015, we will be bringing 3 boys teams U14, U16 and U18 to Berlin, Germany, to be exposed to the training methodology, culture and passion for the game of one of the most successful soccer countries in the world.
