At ESI we believe that it is important for our players/parents to be exposed to an environment where player development is proven to be successful. With this in mind, every year ESI players travel abroad to train and play with French academies and French Football Federation development programs in France and its overseas territories.
French Football Federation
Pole Espoir, Guadeloupe
During the month of March, ESI players travel to the Pole Espoir Guadeloupe, one of the best pre-academy programs of the French Football Federation. The players train everyday and play both outdoor and Futsal games.
