One of our partner academies, Chronis Elite Academy, visited IDA Valencia for a 1-week group experience. Chronis Elite Academy, based in New York and managed by Andreas Chronis (former AEK Athens player), focuses on the development of 1-on-1 sessions for his players.
The 1-week experience was organized by IDA Valencia and included trainings, games, and cultural activities, including visiting Mestalla Stadium and the city center of Valencia.
The academy played 2 preparatory games against local clubs and had the opportunity to participate in the Villarreal Yellow Cup. Chronis Elite played 3 group grams against Portmany Atlético, Andorra FC, and Villarreal CF. They qualified for the next round and played against Real Madrid. Coach Chronis said, “We were very lucky. We had the chance to compete against top-notch academies in Spain. The level of exposure and competition was something that we never experienced before.”
It was an awesome experience for both Chronis Elite and IDA Valencia. Andreas commented on their time in Valencia, “Our experience with IDA Valencia was outstanding. Their facilities, the staff, and how everything was organized always with special attention to detail, was just fantastic. We had the chance to train and play against Spanish clubs, a unique experience that prepared us for what was coming next.”
