[MONTVERDE ACADEMY] Florida's Montverde Academy has named for Dutch star and Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard as official ambassador and advisor of player development for its Soccer Institute.
 
“To have someone like Frank Rijkaard directly involved in our operations at the institute speaks volumes about his commitment to player development,” says institute director and Mike Potempa. “Without question, his guidance will be invaluable to our development as an institute.”
 
The Soccer Institute at Montverde Academy (SIMA) will open in August 2013 to provide full-time soccer training at the boarding school.
 
“I am pleased and honored to be joining the Montverde Academy family and excited to begin my new role as official ambassador and advisor of player development for the MVA Soccer Institute,” said Rijkaard.  “After visiting the campus in July, I feel as though The Soccer Institute at Montverde Academy will offer a superior life experience for talented youth, and I believe in the model they have developed, placing a focus on world class education in the classroom and on the field of competition.  The future is bright at Montverde Academy.”

The Monteverde soccer team will play club teams, national teams and colleges and travel abroad during the 12-month training program.
