embarked on a tour of Argentina coordinated by Storm DOC Cacho Cordoba, the former Boca Juniors star. The itinerary included games against the 02-04 boys from Boca Juniors, River Plate, San Lorenzo, and Valez Sarsfield "futbol" clubs. They played a futsal tournament at El Alba in the town of Merlo. The groups are coached by Boys DOC Brian Haynes, former Trinindad and Tobago National team player and U13-U13 boys DOC Diego Cerro, who also played in the first division in Argentina for Newell’s old boys. The players had a chance to train with Boca Juniors' coaches Diego Senora and Fabian Fedulio on the trip.
"We are so fortunate to provide this type of experience and exposure to our players as it can't be replicated by other clubs in the US without the contacts and connections of our experienced coaching staff,"
remarked Dave Dir, Storm President, who accompanied the boys to create continuous partnership programs with the Argentina clubs. He continued, “The exposure to different cultures is the reason I fell in love with soccer and dreamed of playing and coaching professionally one day. What a great opportunity for these guys."
