Kaptiva Sports Academy reviews

Cynthia Lim
Our son Yannick joined Kaptiva Sports Academy in september 2019. Expectations were very high after he passed the trials, earlier in March. And these high expectations were all met! The programme was excellent, the young staff matey but firm. As his parents we felt comfortable to leave Yannick in their hands. Unfortunately Yannick tore his cruciate ligament early in the season, and we thought that that was the end of his Kaptiva adventure. Thanks to the tremendous effort of the staff, he had surgery by the best team he could get (the surgeons of FC Barcelona, thanks to Figi) and was coached throughout most of his revalidation, until Corona forced him to go home. Seeing him play again, makes us feel extremely grateful to Joel. Despite his injury, Yannick was able to join a great part of the Kaptiva programme, except for the field training and matches. We were very much attracted to the Kaptiva programme because it offers much more than soccer only. The programme focusses on soccer and but just as much on personal development. We have seen Yannick grow as a person, become mentally stronger. Last year turned out differently than expected, but we wouldn’t have missed it for the world. Thanks Kaptiva!
