A Basque in Boise

BSU Summer Soccer Camp and Athletic de Bilbao in Boise: The Basque Studies Program needs your input

athleticclubwomenThis week’s Astero weekly bulletin brings some interesting news for soccer fans.

The Basque Studies Program at BSU is putting together a soccer camp in Boise this July that would coincide with the annual San Inazio Basque Festival. But this is not just any soccer camp; the instructors at this camp would be members of the Athletic Bilbao Women’s Team as well as some of the coaching staff from Boise State University’s Women’s Soccer program.

Before going forward they would like to find out if there would be interest in such a camp, and so are asking folks to fill out a survey that can be found here. Tentative camp dates would be July 21-24, 2014 and it would be for both boys and girls. They hope there is enough interest to run this camp as it would be “a unique opportunity for all!”

Also, the survey wants to find out how many people would like to see a friendly game between La Liga men’s soccer team, Athletic Bilbao from the Basque region of Spain, and a U.S. professional men’s soccer team in Boise on July 29, 2015. Athletic de Bilbao has already committed to make the trip. This would be the first time Athletic de Bilbao plays a game in Boise, and who knows when it will happen again!

If you would like to have Astero, NABO’s weekly bulletin, sent directly to your inbox, you only have to fill out this form.

    The friendly match would be very exciting and I am sure that our soccer community would get behind it! The camp for kids sounds great and offering a half day option would be a nice option.

    “how many people would like to see a friendly game between La Liga men’s soccer team, Athletic Bilbao from the Basque region of Spain, and a U.S. professional men’s soccer team in Boise on July 29, 2015.” I would LOVE to see a soccer match in Boise between a U.S. professional men’s soccer team and Athletic Bilbao!!! I know people who would travel to Boise for this event alone. PLEASE make it happen!

    This would be a great camp, and is a very unique opportunity for players, just like the Premier Camp offered by ProSports Pathways this summer. It would also be great to see Athletic Bilbao play against a pro team from the USA.

    It looks like the camp might be a go, but I’m waiting for confirmation before sharing the news on the blog.
