San Ramon FC will be hosting the Japan Football Association’s U-15 Girls Academy team in February!
Players from the U-15 Academy team will spend time with host families in San Ramon while training and competing in two matches in San Ramon at Rancho San Ramon and Tiffany Roberts Field. Admission is free to both games! Come out and cheer on the JFA team!
By traveling to the Bay Area, the JFA U-15 Academy players gain valuable experience playing against bigger and stronger girls. On Saturday February 13th at 3:00pm at Rancho San Ramon in San Ramon, the JFA U-15 Academy team will play a match against Sacramento United. The following week, on Wednesday, February 17th at 6:00pm, they will compete against the NorCal PDP team at Tiffany Roberts Field.
Overseas travel helps the Japanese players gain international exposure, while also learning how to adjust to staying abroad. International travel puts them out of their comfort zone in a positive learning environment. There are 12 girls on the JFA U-15 Academy team, all of whom are very technically skilled. It is normal for two or three players from this team to move up to the Japanese U-16 Women’s National Team.
Come out and witness these talented young players with your own eyes and enjoy this unique San Ramon FC community event!
