Sporting Update

Rafael Levy - one of the chosen few!

Rafael Levy in Year 3 will travel next year as part of the Premier Academy select team to represent them in the JSSL 7's Football tournament which is Asia's largest youth soccer tournament. Over 17 nations will be competing.

Rafael has represented the Celtic international academy here on Sydney for the past 2 years. The selection was carried out of the current season games by Fifa officials who watched all the premier academy games closely to make the player selection. 

Rafael has been a fantastic asset to the  undefeated Year 3 Soccer Blue Team this year  player in Year 3 and is a generous and collegial player in any position he is given.

Well done Rafael - this is an outstanding achievement and we look forward to hearing about your adventure!
