The RIBEIRO MOOJEN COMBINE hosts an exclusive showcase every year for boys interested to go play and study at the best soccer academy in the US located in Orlando, Florida: Montverde Academy.
This particular showcase is open for all boys from 14 to 18 years old. In the past years we have placed over 30 boys and multiple girls from Quebec at Montverde Academy. A lot of these players accepted scholarship offers to continue their careers at the NCAA 1 level after their graduation from Montverde Academy.

Mike will also make a PowerPoint presentation during the showcase to explain in detail to the parents and players what is the Montverde Academy and what it has to offer to the players that choose to go play and study in Orlando, Florida.
