The Columbus Crew SC Residential camp saw its most successful year in 2015 with over 154 campers, 2016 is going to be the best yet!
The camp is designed to educate and challenge soccer players with a Professional Team Experience that they are unable to get anywhere else in the region.
The Columbus Crew SC Curriculum is designed by the Columbus Crew SC technical staff and used at all levels of the Columbus Crew SC player development system. The curriculum provides technical and tactical development by age through proper understanding and the fundamentals needed for further development in the game. In addition, our instructors will touch on other areas of importance that will aide in their development such as nutrition and conditioning and provide the very best example of what it takes to be a quality soccer player, dependable teammate, and a good citizen.
From a training standpoint, the camp will include technical / tactical training, classroom lectures, speed and agility sessions, goalkeeper training, and unrestricted free play. Campers will be separated into training sessions by age and ability at the camp.
Campers will also have access to the Columbus Crew SC Training facility, Columbus Crew SC training sessions, Columbus Crew SC stadium, guest speakers, and more.
