Young American Edukick Student Spotted by French Professional Soccer Club.
We’re interested in all types of boarding schools and today we’re happy to highlight a school and student that pour their efforts into international soccer.
French 3rd division professional team, AS Cannes, recently invited American Mason Hampel to participate on its U18 development squad. Development squads serve as training grounds and possible stepping stones to a professional career in the incredibly competitive world of European soccer.
AS Cannes noticed Mason’s potential while he was a student at EduKick’s soccer boarding school in Cannes. Mason previously attended EduKick’s school Spain.
Mason hit the ground running in Cannes diving in to training, fitness tests and friendly matches.
“We’re very proud of Mason,” said Joey Bilotta, vice president of EduKick. “He’s an extremely talented player, and he will be a strong addition to the AS Cannes U18 squad. It is a huge, huge honor to be invited to try out for a professional team. It’s something that only happens for our very best players, so we’re always excited when somebody truly deserving like Mason gets chosen.”
EduKick reports that Mason’s amateur contract with the AS Cannes U18 squad will not jeopardize his future American college eligibility.
