Just FYI - thought I'd mention it, since he's a local kid who's doing well in soccer, and wants to bring it back home to help out our kids:
So, those of you who might know Christopher "Chino" Santana, he grew up playing soccer here in Bishop (Bishop AYSO, Bishop High class of 2010, UC Irvine div. 1 player, now plays for USL team OC Blues FC), and wants to help our local kids get to the next level. It's always a struggle to get noticed coming from a small town like Bishop.
Anyway, for the second year, Bishop AYSO alumni and professional soccer player Christopher "Chino" Santana (Bishop High, class of 21010, now plays for USL team OC Blues FC) is conducting a high-level training camp over the Thanksgiving weekend for all players who are looking for opportunities to improve, and to learn how to advance to the next level.
Chino is conducting this camp with his friends from from his former Division 1 UC Irvine team, professional player Tarek Morad (USL team Louisville City FC), Marco Franco (NASL team Indy Eleven) and others TBD.
We're so proud that he grew up playing AYSO soccer right here in Bishop. He knows how hard it was to get seen by college coaches and scouts since we're such a small community, and he wants to expand opportunities for players and their families to learn what it takes to move from recreational soccer, to playing Division 1 college soccer, and even into the professional ranks. He and his friends are trying to make sure that our kids, playing in our rural communities in the Eastern Sierra, have a chance to learn how to get to the next level. All players in the Eastern Sierra who are interested, please RSVP as soon as possible, as participation is limited. Ages 6-18 are welcome.
Please visit this website for full details on Chino's 2nd annual Thanksgiving training camp:http://www.studiosoccertraining.com/thanksgivingcamp/
It will take place over the Thanksgiving weekend (Nov. 26-27, Sat-Sun), at Home Street Middle School, 201 Home Street, Bishop, CA 93514), from 10am-2pm.
He has worked hard to make sure it is affordable, and high quality. And, he especially wants to give opportunities for next level training for our local kids in AYSO. Please visit the web site to pre-register right away, to insure you have a spot.
