Futbol Funatics would like to congratulate long time FF player Ysa Samonte for being selected as one of the 12 Philippine delegates (10-12 years old) being sent to the Astro Kem Bola Advanced Training Camp that will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from September 13 to 17. Ysa has been training under Futbol Funatics for many years at FF’s Tahanan Village camp and is a part of FF’s Advanced Training Program and Selection Team (FFAST) as well as the Forza FC UFL Youth Team Born 2005.
Ysa was one of the hundreds of youth football players who tried out to be part of the Astro Kem Bola Camp which had screenings in Metro Manila, Davao, Iloilo and Negros Occidental handled by Globe Telecom and their Football Para Sa Bayan initiative. The Philippine delegation will be meeting their selected counterparts from Singapore and Malaysia at the camp in Kuala Lumpur and from there a further selection will be made for a training program in Europe this December.
Congratulations, Ysa and good luck to all the Philippine delegates!
