"I have only good things to say about our trip to Brazil with BUSA. It was a wonderful experience. The players learned so much

from the coaches, the Brazilian players and from each other. Brazil is a wonderful country, nature is amazing and the people

are so friendly. The BUSA coaches did a fantastic job to make us feel welcome and safe and they did everything to help out and

be available for all kinds of questions. 

The fact that we stayed in a smaller city and area made us feel so safe and good. The training program was intense for the boys

but it was a great mix of free time and adventures as well.  We visited a waterfall, rode horses, took the zip line out from high mountains.

We celebrated Festa Junina with a dance at a local high school. We tried all kinds of good food. But most importantly we watched

a lot of great soccer.  The VAR tournament we got to attend was an experience of a lifetime for the boys.

Its really an amazing opportunity BUSA gives the players with this program. I can warmly recommend it"
