The Rene Meulensteen Academy (RMA) will conduct a three day “Moves & Skills” camp 9am – 12pm, August 26-28, 2015.  This camp is for boys and girls ages U9-U14 and open to all players in the greater Vancouver area.  The RMA program is designed by Rene Meulensteen, a world renowned expert in player development.  His proven and successful curriculum has developed players such as Danny Welbeck and Tommy Cleverly throughout Rene’s employment at Manchester United’s famed youth academy (2001-2007).  Rene was also instrumental during one of the most successful periods of Manchester United’s First Team as the person responsible for all and every training session (2009-2013).
