SMSC and Global Image Sports is pleased to announce a partnership with Stoke City of the English Premier League that will see 'The Potters' host an ID and Development Camp at the Gulfport Sportsplex from November 19-22, 2016. The camp will feature Academy coaches from Stoke City and will be available to all SMSC SELECT players U9-18 (split into appropriate age groupings). The camp will be for both Boys and Girls.
While the primary objective of this camp is to expose athletes to a professional training environment, there is an opportunity for players selected from this camp to attend a National ID camp and could potentially be invited to England for a trial at the EPL club training center.
The Stoke City staff will also host a free Coach Development seminar on Sunday evening during the camp. The partnership also makes allowances for coach and team exchanges.
Camp registration is now open.
Thank you to all the entries in this year's photo contest, Traveling with SMSC. It was fun to see where folks traveled this summer. And we love the SMSC spirit that traveled with them. Keegan had many stops in his travels. But his furthest this summer was when he visited Hochwerzen, Austria. That is 5,249 miles (as a crow flies) from good 'ole County Farm Soccer Complex, Home of South MS Soccer Club! Welcome back, everyone. Keegan plays for the SMSC 05 Boys select team. Have fun spending your $100 gift card at Academy Sports. Several images from everyone's travels are included in the slideshow below.
Do you have a piece of clothing, bag or other item and want a club crest embroidered on? We have what you need. The only requirement is it must be NIKE gear since SMSC is a NIKE Sponsored Club. There are no digitizing fees. You can order 1 item or 100 items. The crest is 3.5" tall. Its the same size as our jersey image and will fit perfectly on the cover flap of the new NIKE backpacks for the select kit. Each crest embroidery is $10. Its not a patch. The crest will be actually stitched into the fabric using a professional embroidery machine. It looks awesome. Contact Russ Carothers.
