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.

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.
