A Week-long Camp will Introduce European Style Soccer to Area Youth

(CARY, NORTH CAROLINA -May, 2007) - It is well-known in the world of soccer that Italy is a strong soccer country. They won the 2006 World Cup and are currently ranked first in the world by the FIFA organization. And, for the first time, Triangle area youth will have the opportunity to learn some of the finer technical and tactical points of Italian soccer. Through a partnership with the SoccerKix Italian Soccer School and the Ascoli Calcio (Ascoli Soccer Academy), the Shalom Soccer Academy (2SA) will be hosting a one-week Italian soccer camp for youth in Cary, North Carolina.

The Scuola Calcio program puts on camps throughout the United States and the world, under the direction of company president Antonio Saviano, who is also the North America Ascoli Soccer Academy Director and Coordinator. He currently resides in North Carolina.

“Ascoli Soccer Academy is sending some of the best youth soccer development coaches to the USA this summer. This will help bring our soccer youth players to the next level” said Saviano. He continued by stating “Ascoli Soccer Academy coaches will look at the talent from this year’s camps to see if there is a player or two that can be invited to Italy for a try-out.” However, he assures that all the players will come away from the camps with something to be proud of. “I am confident that the participants will experience excellent coaching, build great self-confidence, learn new skills, and new ways of thinking. They will learn the way Italian coaches teach the game of soccer,” stated Saviano. Mr. Giorgio Covacich from Milan, Italy will be the guest coach during the North Carolina camp. He holds the UEFA "B" License and he is presently the Ascoli Soccer Academy Instructor, Scout and Observer for Ascoli Soccer Academy, he is also a Member of the Ascoli Soccer Academy for the Youth Development and Member for Technical experimentation for the formation of the youth soccer player.
