July, 11th 2017


Three TSF Academy players will travel, through generation adidas Select, to train with Europe’s elite. Marcus Kayal and John Becker have been selected to train with A.F.C Ajax, while Danny DiMarco will travel to Real Madrid to once again take part in the program.

“I feel very proud and grateful to be selected once again to represent my club TSF.” – Danny DiMarco

Each year the top Adidas youth soccer clubs nationwide have the exclusive opportunity to nominate players and coaches to participate in the generation adidas International Select program. 96 talented players have been invited to train this August at Real Madrid Foundation, A.F.C. Ajax, and Olympique Lyonnais - three of the world’s most powerful soccer clubs.

“I want to be the best player that I can be and reach my greatest potential.” – Marcus Kayal

In addition to being trained by the clubs’ foundation coaches, DiMarco, Kayal and Becker will play in international friendly matches against Academy teams and receive individual evaluation from their coaches - an opportunity presented to very few American players.

“This is an opportunity I will not take for granted, and I am looking forward to participating in all of the training sessions, matches and events.” – John Becker

“To obtain one of the 96 spots is an honor, but to be sending three players shows the arduous work that is being done at the club,” Director of Coaching Luis Mendoza commented.

Mendoza is very familiar with the program, having directed the Real Madrid Foundation Select for several years.
