DJCT Team Heading to Dundee, Scotland
C-04B team traveling to UK this summer to train and play against affiliated club Dundee FC
DJCT's C-04B team is heading to Dundee, Scotland in August 2015, where the team will compete and train with and against Dundee FC's youth teams. Dundee FC, who play in the Scottish Premiership (top level of Scotland's professional leagues), are affiliated with DJCT, as DJCT's Executive Director, John Nelms, also serves as Dundee FC's Director of Football and is based in Scotland.
Last year was the first-ever event held between the affiliated clubs, with the DJCT-Dundee FC Soccer Camp. The majority of Dundee FC's first-team coaching staff traveled to Austin to instruct Dynamo players for the week-long event.
This year will see the 2nd DJCT-Dundee FC Soccer Camp take place at Regents School of Austin June 15-19, 2015 with the Premiership sides' coaching staff again making the journey to the states.
The DJCT-Dundee FC affiliation is unique to just about any youth club in the U.S., as DJCT kids will have the chance to be trained/coached by the same coaching staff that beat the English Premier League champions, Manchester City FC, 2-0 last July in a preseason match in Scotland.
DJCT's C-04B are fundraising to help offset the costs of the once-in-a-lifetime experience. Please visit their website to help contribute.
