Fleetwood Town International Football Academy will make their way to the United States of America this week to take part in the National Coaching Convention and visit local colleges and football clubs.
The New Year has seen old and new faces enter the FTIFA programme, and this week members of staff from the International Academy will make their way across the Atlantic to visit Baltimore and Washington DC as they look to continue to make partnerships with organisations.
After successful trips to Hong Kong, Portugal, Qatar and Canada, this will enable those behind the scenes to build their contact list as the programme is now going more every year.
For the first three days of the tour, FTIFA will attend the United Soccer Coaches Convention in Baltimore. The visit will enable the Academy to meet up with coaches, football clubs, colleges and universities to share ideas and make relationships moving forward.
After a short but busy stop in the State of Maryland, the staff will make the trip to Washington DC to again spread the word of the work being done across the pond on the Fylde Coast, as well as visiting the local universities and colleges to speak to students.
Whilst in Washington, FTIFA will go to a number of state grassroots football teams and deliver sessions to the children, and work alongside their management staff to ensure children on both sides of the Atlantic are getting the best coaching possible.
FTIFA offers players a platform to showcase and further develop their talents in front of coaches and recruitment at a professional football club.
