Busan I-Park U12 (hereinafter referred to as Busan U12) has won the 2023 Busan Primary Camellia League with 13 wins in 13 matches.
It was the first time in four years that the Busan U12s went undefeated in the league after winning the 2019 season’s Primary Weekend League with 11 wins and one draw in 12 games. This is the first time the U12s have won the title, and the second for the entire Busan I-Park Youth program after Busan U15 Nakdong-joong won the Weekend League in 2016.
The team’s record in the league is even more impressive. The team scored 62 goals and conceded just nine during their 13-game unbeaten run, demonstrating the power of Busan IPark Youth’s explosive scoring and stellar defense.토토사이트
Busan U12 Coach Kim Sung-jun said, “First of all, this is a ‘we’ result. I want to give credit to the players for their hard work. I won the U15 Nakdongjoong title as a coach in 2016 and won my first title as a U12 coach seven years later. I am more pleased with the result based on the direction and playing style of the club than the victory. I think the fact that I was able to create a fun, creative, and challenging training environment through communication with Park Hyung-joo, the head coach of the youth team, played a big role in their growth. I think it was mainly due to the fact that we focused on growth rather than performance and told them to reach areas where other players can’t, and victory will follow.” He said.
He added, “I’ve been in Busan for 13 years and have watched the growth of many professional players such as Lee Dong-joon, Kwon Hyuk-kyu, Kim Jin-kyu, Cho Woo-je, and Shin Min-woo, and now there are many talented friends in the youth who are as good as them. I think this is the advantage of our system. I hope that Busan IPark will continue to produce professional players like Hwasubun.” He said.
Meanwhile, the Busan U12 and advanced classes are currently recruiting players through regular tests.
