“My name is Kaleb Mauricio, and I am 10 years old. I started playing soccer at 4 years old. Since then, I have fell in love with the sport. I love to play soccer anytime I have a chance. With soccer, I’ve learned if you do things alone you can’t accomplish anything without teamwork. There are so many great soccer players to be inspired by, but when I grow up, I want to be my own unique professional soccer player. With the opportunity to attend this camp, I believe that I will come back as a whole new player and have plans to teach my teammates what I have learned from this experience.”
Kaleb attended a local Futbol Club Barcelona soccer camp held in Tulsa, OK during the summer of 2017. Out of 5000 players throughout the 20 campsites in the nation, 10% were hand selected to have the opportunity to join the Barcelona All-Star Squad and attend an invite-only intensive training in Barcelona, Spain. The FC Barcelona Escola coaches selected players based on skills and FC Barcelona values: Humility, Respect, Effort, Ambition, and Teamwork. Kaleb was one of the selected and invited to attend this camp in February 2018. With this opportunity, he will have the chance to represent US soccer in his age division by competing against top soccer clubs in Barcelona, improve techniques and competitive skills, and attend a career orientation presented by the Barcelona coaches and players.
His training, boarding, and activities offered by FC Barcelona Soccer Clinic will be out of pocket expenses. We would appreciate to get your support by giving him your well wishes and any monetary gift you are willing to give. By receiving your monetary support, this once in a lifetime opportunity will be possible.
We, as his parents, are very proud of Kaleb’s hard work and dedication. We would love for Kaleb to be able to experience this All-Star training in Barcelona, Spain. We appreciate all of your support.
