345 FC’s Under-9 team impresses at Adidas Summer Festival

345 FC’s Under-9 team recently traveled to Miami to compete in the Adidas Summer Festival, where it finished runner-up in its group.

“This was an excellent opportunity for these young players to have a meaningful and competitive international experience,” 345 FC coach Peter Reijn said.

345 FC earned a pair of wins and lost one match at the tournament. The Cayman side rattled off back-to-win wins over Miami Strike Force U9 and Homestead Supa Strikas FC after dropping a tightly contested tournament opener to Southern Homestead Soccer Academy. 345 FC finished second in its group, one point shy of earning a spot in the tournament finals.

“Player development is the priority at this age level and these trips will go a long way in helping our athletes improve,” Reijn said. “We talk about the importance of sleep, proper nutrition, good training habits and how these things translate into success on the pitch. I was pleased with how these children approached the tournament and how they performed.” 

The trip was the second of the year for the U-9 team. It competed in February in the Weston Cup, which is one of the biggest youth soccer tournaments in the United States.
