Red Deer Renegades Soccer Club player Ajdin Sarcevic has been invited to attend the Bosnian national team under-17/19 identification camp beginning Feb. 8 in Zenica, Bosnia.

Sarcevic, currently a member of the Edmonton Academy Football Club, participated in an ‘open door’ Bosnian soccer camp in Denver in May of last year and also attended a camp in Medjugorje, Bosnia in June.

In July of last year, he participated in the showcase camp held by the Alberta Soccer Association in Calgary and his performance at all three events led to the Bosnian national team ID camp invitation.

“I love playing soccer and I’m very excited that my hard work and determination have led to this opportunity,” Sarcevic said. “My goal is to follow my father’s (Ado’s) footsteps to be a professional soccer player.”

The younger Sarcevic started playing as a three-year-old in Red Deer City Soccer Association programs. He continued participating in RDCSA programs until the U10 level, then moved to the competitive stream — Renegades SC. He remained in the club for the rest of his youth career until his recent move to FC Edmonton where he was accepted into their Academy program.

Ajdin finished his Renegades career by winning two indoor provincial championships at the U18 level, along with winning gold in the 2015 outdoor provincials.

“Sarcevic’s accomplishments are the result of RDCSA’s commitment to provide quality technical programs,” said RDCSA president Paul Morigeau. “We extend our best wishes to Ajdin in his upcoming soccer endeavours.”
