JULY 3, 2021

We are thrilled to announce that 3 Blast FC players are going to Croatia for

the exclusive European tryouts in one of the best European academies.

Eben Dewhurst, Dylan Stephens, and Kevin Araya will get the chance to experience the professional approach of experienced coaches which focuses on the overall player development and what it means to play at the highest level.

Our boys will be in Croatia for two weeks starting on August 2nd until August 13th, 2021. The well-structured schedule of practices and friendly

matches will be demanding, but this will also give our boys an opportunity to show their skills and learn from this experience. Players in the Croatian Academy are used to two practices per day and, the intensity of the soccer game is at the highest possible level for youth competitions.

Our boys are the first ones from Blast FC to participate in the European tryouts program, and we are convinced that they will represent our club in the best possible way.

“Our boys will go to one of the best academies in Europe. Players are professionally coached from the moment they enter the Academy at the age of 6 or 7 until they leave the Academy at the age of 19. Each player works with the team and individually under the supervision of highly educated and professional coaches. This way, the Academy ensures the proper way of player development and keeps that high level of competitiveness. I believe they will experience what it means to play at the professional level.”
