ANB Academy Director – Bassam Naim and Guyana Women’s Technical Director - Mark Rodrigues came to an agreement whereby ANB Academy would be the official training center in Ontario, Canada for the Guyana Women’s National Team Toronto based players. Training started immediately following this agreement, and will continue through the final stage of CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifying scheduled to start on October 28th, 2010 in Cancun, Mexico.

Academy Director – Bassam Naim and his highly qualified staff have already put a number of national team members through several rigorous training sessions. A number of high level female academy players have had the privilege to train alongside these international athletes at these sessions. Guyana Women’s National Soccer Team created history in their country by qualifying for this final stage of CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying by defeating Cuba on July 3rd in Guyana by a score of 3-1. History for Guyana was made on this day as no other team (male or female) had ever advanced this far in World Cup Qualifying at any age.

Academy Director – Bassam Naim has accepted an invitation to continue his work with the National Team at a training camp in Tampa, Florida from Oct 21-26, then travel with the team to Cancun for their first game on Oct 28th.

Guyana Women’s Technical Director – Mark Rodrigues indicated that he is very excited to have Mr. Naim agree to be a part of his coaching staff and is looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship between ANB Academy and the Guyana Football Federation.

ANB academy's vision is to become Canada’s leading soccer development organization. Its mission is to identify Canadian soccer talent, and to maximize the potential of players at any level, through professional coaching and training.
