The European Football School has just completed its third summer  camp  of 2014, this one held  in East Vancouver.  This Scholarship camp supported a record 78 players this year due largely  to additional major funding through former EFS parent, Drew Hoyle, and the CIBC Children's Miracle Fund.  These 78 youth players  had lots of fun learning new soccer skills.

There’s an undeniable passion Saibo Talic brings to the pitch in his coaching style.

In the 11 years he’s been hosting his Vancouver-based European Football School soccer camp in the lakecity many players have experienced it and many more have benefited from his instruction.

Close to 100 players split into sessions by age spent Monday to Friday last week at the Esler Sports Complex working on skills and tactical knowledge of the game from Saibo and his coaching staff. There was also a select camp and a coaching clinic held during the early evenings.

Full team

EFS has just completed its 18th playing tour to Europe since its inception in the year 2000. Two boys teams (29 players), aged U15/U16 and U16/U17, returned to Canada in early April from a 13 day playing tour of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, and Northern Italy. This was undoubtedly the most exciting and successful tour, both in terms of team performance and games results, yet it was the toughest due to the number of countries visited (5) and the number of games played (9) within the short time frame of 13 days.
