Sigma Sports Solutions is pleased to announce the addition of Henk Mariman Youth Technical Director of FC Club Brugge (Belgium) to the coaching roster for this summer's Sigma/AJAX Training Camps. Club Bruges is widely regarded as the top club in Belgium with a great history both domestically and in European competition. Henk Mariman will be traveling to Canada and to SIGMA in particular for the first time in order to evaluate talent and gain a greater knowledge of the soccer landscape.
The addition of Henk Mariman to the program will complement greatly the already strong technical team SIGMA Technical Director Bobby Smyrniotis has assembled which includes the AJAX staff and the NCAA Div 1 coaches who will be making their way to Toronto for the annual SIGMA training camp and scouting events. Mr.Mariman will be instructing during the week of July 7-11th where players born between the years of 1990 to 1995 will be participating at the Hershey center in Mississauga.
The technical staff and management at SIGMA view this as another opportunity for the young players of our region to learn more about the game from a different perspective. The players will now have the opportunity to train under the guidance of a few different schools of thought.
Constantine Smyrniotis (Managing Director of SIGMA and SEG Canada) believes the addition of Henk Mariman is another step for SIGMA in providing quality training and experiences to its players, "Having Mr. Mariman in Toronto marks another step forward for SIGMA. This being our 4th year of hosting the technical team of AFC AJAX we decided to add a different perspective to our training week of July 7-11th which focuses on all the older ages of SIGMA. In my discussions with Mr. Mariman it is quite clear that he is excited to make the trip to Toronto and he has made it very clear that his purpose is definitely scouting oriented and hopes to find a few special players that would have the level to play at a Club Brugge".
