The event promised young student-athletes the opportunity to showcase their talents, in the hopes of securing scholarships  to US universities.

The trials were well attended, resulting in 45 student-athletes  being selected for the showcase.

The event resulted in 20 scholarship offers being made to the students, including fourteen (14) offers to St. Lucia student-athletes and six (6) to Dominica student-athletes. This outcome, being the most successful of any showcase held on island, greatly exceeded expectations.

Free Kick Foundation has since been actively engaged in preparing the students for their transition to the USA. These are exciting times and FKF is honored to be a part of such a life-changing event.

“Our interest and investment in these students is not limited only to sporting achievements, but extends to the fulfillment of their absolute potential – including education, life skills, broadening of their horizons through travel and a diverse range of opportunities. “ said the CEO of FKF Aaron King.

He also added “ We believe that the US college experience will provide these students the expert coaching and exposure to competition that will help foster winning attitudes.”

At the press conference held last monday, each student-athlete was presented  with an official college t-shirt from the school that they will be attending this  August.
