Photos: BBFS Canada Football Tour Continues

July 8, 2015

The Bermuda’s Brazilian Football School [BBFS] eighth annual Football Cultural Tour to Canada continued recently, with the group participating in both training and games before paying a visit to Niagara Falls.

On day five, the players held a light and fun based futsal session. The session was based on playing in a small space and being able to retain possession or use a skill/move to get past your opponent.‎

In games, all teams were hosted by the Oakville Soccer Club of Ontario, the largest Soccer Club in North America with 10,000 members.

The U11 girls and and boys participated in another mini football festival playing three matches each. The U11 girls were placed in mixed teams with the Oakville girls and enjoyed making new friends.

“The competitive level of play and technical warmup sessions, has been a great learning tool for this group thus far,” a spokesperson said.

“‎The U12 boys played three matches vs various Oakville teams. In the first match BBFS went down 4-1 as the boys were taught a lesson to not judge the opponent by the size of their players.

“In game two, the boys showed a vast improvement with a 2-2 draw. Their final game ended with a 0-0 draw and this was another great learning experience for them.”


“The girls joined in with the Oakville U14′s and played vs Turks and Caicos. All three [Aaliyah, Cally and Talea] showed a vast improvement from game 1 with Aaliyah continuing to find the back of the net. The final score was 9-0 to Oakville.

“The U14 boys went down 1-0 to a strong Oakville U14 Academy team. During the 80 minutes, the team was introduced to the intense physical demands of international football.

“Both teams battled for every ball, tugged on shirts, tackled, exchanged some pleasant words on the pitch and created a few chances. In the 70th minute, Oakville would score on a lapse of concentration in the defense to go up 1-0.‎‎

“BBFS battled back and created a final chance to score from a corner but the cross was headed just over the bar.

“On day six, the entire group visited Niagara Falls and our first stop was the Maid of the Mist Fall Tour. We boarded the ferry boat and enjoyed a 25 minute ride on the falls. ‎After the boat tour, we headed to the Haunted House of the Falls and the Games Arcade. The tour ended with a scenic tour back to the hotel.”
