Since the inception of Sigma's ETC (Elite Training Centre) program in October 2006 it has come to be known as a leading centre of professional development of many of Ontario's top football talents. Boasting over 120 boys, ages of 8 to 18, it does not come as a surprise that many of the female players are requesting the same opportunities for development.
With that said, come this July, 2008, Sigma is officially opening the doors to an ETC Girls Program by targeting the top female talents within the GTA to be a part of the summers Ajax of Amsterdam I.D. Camps.
"This platform will provide us the opportunity to hand pick highly motivated, skilled and dedicated players that desire more development in an environment conducive to that of a youth professional system in Europe" says Bobby Smyrniotis, Technical Director of Sigma Sports Solutions.
The ETC Girls program will be built along the same basis as the boys program ground up. Future objectives for the girls will be directed to that of the United States for scholarship opportunities whereas the boys have been directed not only to the United Stated but to European soil as well.
Girls will train 2-3 times per week with a focus much like the boys program. It will provide the highest quality of systematic training with a universal philosophy lead by Technical Director, Bobby Smyrniotis. The Sigma coaching team has a vast experience in player development both domestically and internationally. They will plan and implement a program of proper development and education based on technical and scientific specifications to training of leading professional development schools.
Sigma will be spending a lot of time scouting the local pitches during the months of May and June with invitations going out to female prospects for the fall ETC program. Players will be invited to participate in the week long Ajax of Amsterdam I.D. camp this July where several coaches from the famed Ajax Youth Academy will not only help assess the talent pool but will impart their years of experience and knowledge to the athletes.
