We wanted to share with the community that, two of our local youth soccer players, Josh Daiutolo (Prescott, AZ) and Diego Sanchez (Chino Valley, AZ), from the Brazas Futebol Club , were chosen by the Barca Academy, Casa Grande, AZ, to participate in the Barca Year-Round Residency Program. Josh will be attending for the 3rd year in a row, and this will be Diego’s first year with Barca.
This is a huge accomplishment for Josh and Diego as the players travel from around the world to be evaluated in hopes of being selected into this elite Futbol Residency Academy run by the world renowned professional futbol club, FC Barcelona, Spain. Barca has a 100% success rate of placing their players into College on scholarship, or straight to the professional ranks.
Below are links to the Barca Academy website for more information about the Academy, and a press release regarding the announcement of Grande Sports Academy and FC Barcelona, Spain joining forces to create this incredible Casa Grande, AZ, Futbol Academy.

Again, this is a huge accomplishment for both Josh and Diego, and we are extremely proud of them!
