All NYCFC in-person summer camps are cancelled for 2020. The safety and well-being of our players and staff is our #1 priority, so we have made the decision to cancel the in-person 2020 NYCFC Summer Camps and transition to a 100% virtual soccer camp experience.

NYCFC Virtual Summer Camps offer a structured 5-day camp experience with our professional Youth Programs coaching staff right from the comfort of your own home. Players will interact with their virtual coach through our Unique Virtual Summer Camp Online Platform each day as they guide each camper through a comprehensive 3 hours of soccer activities per day.

Each training session is designed to be completed in small spaces of no more than 5 x 5 yards. Sessions are structured around Daily Themes, Ball Manipulation & Skill Zone activities.

Players will receive live sessions from NYCFC & pre-recorded sessions from NYCFC, Melbourne City and Manchester City youth coaches. Campers will be in classes of 2:12 ratios to allow quality coach-to-player interactions. Campers will also join live interactive webinars & Q&As with NYCFC Youth Programs, NYCFC Academy and NYCFC team personnel.

Our Virtual Camps look to create an inclusive environment for players to continue to develop their individual skills and game understanding at home. Each of our daily sessions are accompanied with “City Challenges” where players will compete against one another for unique NYCFC prizes & experiences.
