A TWENTY-MEMBER BARBADOS Soccer Academy (BSA) Under-13 squad will be leaving the island today for an eight-day tour of Ontario, Canada.
The young footballers will play six games under the auspices of the Ontario Soccer Association during the course of the trip which ends on July 6.
“Notwitstanding the games, the group will benefit from daily training sessions provided by certified coaches,” manager Raphael Holder told MIDWEEK Sport.
 “This venture will also include activities aimed at shaping the lives and experiences of these young individuals,” added Holder, who heads a four-member management team.
The BSA group will be hosted by the Barbados consulate with a reception, tomorrow and will participate in the famous Aurora, Canada Day Parade on Friday. A visit to the world-renowned Canada Wonderland Amusement Park is earmarked for Saturday.
