More than Soccer, and English Classes
The B.R.A SPORTS Youth Program
The youth program provides sports and academic learning in a playful and intuitive way, in an environment conducive to pleasure and positive social interaction. In addition to the benefits and many factors that the collective sport brings, such as dealing with achievements and defeats, developing leadership skills, learning about diversity and getting the best out of group work, we seek to influence and encourage mutual respect, fair play, meritocracy and importance of studies in the lives of the winning athletes.
We take English language learning in the classroom into the field! Professionals with an international experience make the transition from the classroom to the field fun and in a short time, the language of instruction will not matter, as students will master the main terms and commands in both Portuguese and English.
The youth program may be the preparatory program for our sports exchange athletes, who seek to use their sports skills to help families finance their studies abroad, but can also serve as training center for disciplined athletes and who understand the importance of the academic side to a successful life. English is a tool for uniting sports and education with satisfaction and the atmosphere created is extremely positive.
The youth program does not aim to form only qualified sportsmen, but its main focus is to develop transforming citizens and the program is open to all interested profiles between 10 and 13 year olds.
The work of B.R.A Sports as a whole is focused on forming citizens and engaging in character formation through education and sport.
