Each October, VIS Academy hosts the annual GIS International ID Camp, featuring some of the biggest clubs in the world. VIS Academy has an exclusive partnership with Global Image Sports to run the GIS International ID Camp in Hawaii.
Global Image Sports represents European professional football clubs in North America and in some cases around the world. Their strategic partnership agreements with each European professional football clubs allows GIS to assist those clubs in player scouting and recruitment.
The GIS International ID Camp offers players a rare opportunity to train with multiple professional academies in one location, and over the course of one 3-day camp.
Coaches from each of the Academies select the top players from the Camp to their respective National Residential Camps and, from there, players have an opportunity to be invited directly to Europe for a chance to train with their Academy teams. Last year, in 2014, two Hawaii players were selected to go directly to Italy and England to train with Chievo Verona and West Ham, respectively.
