Malyx Bergeron-Dinelle is an eighth-grade student at La Citadelle. After playing with the Seaway Valley Soccer Club for several years, the promising U14 Blazers player is off to a 9-day soccer camp in Spain.

It all started with a week-long training clinic hosted by the Real Madrid Soccer Club in Spain that was being offered in Ottawa. A few weeks after attending, Malyx was selected as one of 22 youth chosen to represent Canada in the World Elite Soccer Challenge 2023 in Madrid, Spain this year.

Malyx told Seaway News that he was “really excited,” to hear that he was chosen. When asked if he wants to play soccer professionally, he replied, “Yes, I do. I train a lot.”

The Real Madrid Foundation Clinics World Challenge is an exciting tournament bringing together over 40 teams and over 450 U10 to U14 players from around the world to compete in an elite environment at Real Madrid’s exceptional official training facilities in Madrid, Spain in April.

The camp offers an all-inclusive family experience that gives players the opportunity to develop their skills while discovering Spanish culture in Madrid.

“It’s easy to be proud of him when he puts that much effort and passion into something that he loves to do,” said Malyx’s father and coach, Joel Dinelle, “I hope he learns a lot, makes some new friends, and has a blast!”
