Benfica's summer clinic was a great experience for my son. The coaches were top notch and the sessions intense. He learned so much in one week and really enjoyed it.

George Galdiz

My son said the Benfica clinics were some of the best practices he's ever had! He came away a better and more confident player.

Reme Moya

Our son has attended Benfica DC summer camps the last 3 years and they are excellent. The coaches are great and their training methods have improved our son's play immensely.

Sabrae Derby

My son learned so much at the Benfica clinics. Pedro and the staff really care about helping their players get better.

Laura Stout

With so many options for soccer camps in this area, Benfica stands head and shoulders above the rest. My son has trained at Benfica clinics for two years and particularly likes the work ethic of the coaches.

Jim Rowley

Mis hijas participaron de las clinicas que ofrecieron SL Benfica en el area y fue una de las mejores experiencias que tuvimos, con entrenadores directamente traidos desde Portugal; muy profecionales.

Henry Andrade
