After a two-year absence, Selection Camp is back!
From 27 June to 2 July, this event gave two U14/15 players from each PSG Academy the opportunity to spend a week immersed in the life of a professional player at the Camp des Loges.
These players, selected from thousands on the basis of level of play, merit and state of mind, were thus able to enjoy a unique sporting and cultural experience.
This year, 14 young people from six different countries were welcomed (Qatar, France, West Indies, Germany, USA, South Korea, Egypt).
Under the guidance of Benjamin Houri, technical director of the Paris Saint Germain Academy, the youngsters experienced a week of intensive training with Guillaume Lemire, goalkeeper coach of the women's professional team, and Amaury Lamure, physical trainer at the pre-youth academy. To round out the visit, a test match was held against the U14/15 team of Poissy - an opportunity for the trainees to apply the work they had done during the week (final result 4-4).
Benjamin Houri said at the end of the week: "I was pleasantly surprised by the general level of each of the players sent by the Academy. They were able to adapt quickly in an environment that was not their own, sometimes with a language barrier hampering communication on the pitch. Thank you to them for their spirit and their willingness to learn."
See you next year for the 4th edition!
