THE TAHUICHI WAY
INTERNATIONAL TRAINING CENTER/CAMP "If you want to be the best than you must train with the best. Then you must train with TAHUICHI!!!" This summer experience an intensive soccer training program from July 6 - August 6. Sign up today so we can take you to a place like no other place in the world and to be challenged like you never have been before. Since 1991 we have trained over 2000 Americans. We are looking for males and females ages 13 - 22 . Here is one moment of a Tahuichi Experience from a former player, "Collapsing into a sand dune has never been so comforting . . . After running three miles to reach a ring of sand dunes, another three miles around them, and countless 100 foot sprints up them, I could feel my pulse behind my eyeballs. We were all slowly sinking into the sand, but we were all smiling. Our coaches were smiling too. Everyone around me had the look of a determined delirium (still saying, “More,” still saying, “Bring it on”) found somewhere between insanity and a Spartan euphoria. I could feel it too. Maybe this feeling was Pride. Maybe it was oxygen deprivation. Either way, we knew we were no longer gringos. We were no longer whiny Americans. We were Tahuichis." Located in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, The Tahuichi Way is the most intense soccer camp in the world. It is for competitive soccer players only — and should not be taken lightly. Notable graduates include former DC United MLS Legends Marco Etcheverry and Jaime Moreno, and Francisco Gómez, captain of the 1995 US U-17 national team and former MLS player. Players must love the game and be willing to be immersed in another country’s culture, food, and lifestyle. Spaces are limited, so please apply early.

OUR COMPETITION IS THE WORLD
"Youth soccer in America today is a hot topic and a growing revolution. The book is a rare glimpse into coaching and player challenges faced here in the world of U.S. youth soccer. Baker beautifully expresses eye-opening concepts that spring from his experiences around the world. In the world of opinions in youth soccer, clarity of vision is rare. Baker’s vision is a beacon of light that will hopefully attract coaches from coast to coast and will improve the fabric of youth soccer in this generation." - Diane Scavuzzo (Editor in Chief, Soccer Nation Magazine) http://www.amazon.com/ website http://www.soccer-artistry.com/
