Have you ever thought about playing soccer in Europe? Do you have what it takes to be a professional soccer player?

Well, now is your chance to find out.

There will be a Player I.D. Camp held this Saturday at McCurry Park North in Fayetteville Ga. starting at 10am. Royal Racing Football Club in Belgium has started a new program where American players can play in Belgium as part of their Academy teams while earning an American University Degree through their partnership with Heidelberg College a Division III school out of Ohio.

Brian Haley, the Senior Recruiter for the United States and Heidelberg coach, will be present to watch the players and talk with players and parents about the program.

The camp is being put on by Whitewater boys varsity soccer coach Shane Pulliam, who has been asked to be a scout for the club in Georgia.

The cost for participating will be 10.00 per player and it will be in a 7 v 7 format as well as an 11 v 11 game at the end of the day. The teams would play in several game throughout the day.

"Boys and Girls can come as a team(preferably) or as an individual, it really doesn't matter" said Pulliam. "The main thing is getting players out here; we have a lot of great players in Fayette County, and I would really like to showcase what we have."

There are three players from Georgia going this July; two of whom are local players who have been selected to go this coming year: Jordan Cooper and Brian Forero, both of whom are former Wildcats who will now get to see what it takes to make it overseas.
