A young, talented 9 year old highly footballer from Johannesburg, South Africa GABRIEL LEEB (Gabi) travelled with his family to Barcelona for a weeks high level training experience were he also trained with the DAMM youth football club, one of the strongest in Barcelona and he certainly held his own. He had an incredible experience through a programme created by Celebreightfc's head coach, Christian Donaire, highlighted in his father Jonny Leeb's own words.........
At the outset, we just want to thank you both.
The time, effort and energy you both invested into our week made this an
incredible Barcelona experience for Zev, Gabriel, Hylton, Lisa and I.
On the recommendation of Glyn Binkin, our objective was to expose Gabriel to
the Spanish coaching and playing systems and get a sense of how good he is
in relation to some of the best in the world at his age. To this end
Celebreight put together a soccer program that included one-on-one coaching,
training with two clubs in Catalunya, and a detailed and invaluable feedback
session. The program was everything we could have hoped for and more, and
the feedback session highlighted the areas in which Gabriel was strong (and
should continue developing these strengths), and also those areas in which
he needs to improve.
Apart from the program itself, Celebreight coordinated a Barcelona B game,
took us to La Masia (the Barcelona training academy), and arranged tickets
and transport to both a La Liga and indeed a Champions League match -
experiences we previously could only imagine.
There was also enough time for the family to sightsee Barcelona, visit La
Rambla, watch the Barcelona Tennis Open BancSabadell and visit the Zoo and
In conclusion, we could not have hoped for a more positive experience and to
say that Celebreight over-delivered may be an understatement. We really hope
to repeat this experience and to see you again sooner rather than later.
