The Sports Culture project, which aims to promote Italian player development, language, and culture, also provides unique international cross-cultural opportunities, training and playing with the best clubs in Italy, and exposure to a new language. Providing a friendly environment for all, AC Cugini's focus is on developing young players to reach their highest potential and goals, whether at the professional or college level (in the United  States or in Italy), or just for fun.
