Coaches from the Royal Dutch Football Association will be on Maui in June to host a three-day youth soccer camp. The purpose of the camp is to identify Hawaiʻi youth soccer players for an opportunity to travel to the Netherlands and train in the Dutch professional youth academy system.

The camp will be held June 10, 11 and 12 at Keōpūolani Regional Park for boys in Hawaiʻi born in the years 2007, 2008 and 2009. Space is limited.

The camp and training with the KNVB in the Netherlands, a first-of-its-kind opportunity for youth in Hawaiʻi, has been facilitated by Aleksandar Filipovic, president and director of coaching for Valley Isle Soccer Academy.
