Trainings are undertaken by the expert coaches and have been developed meticulously. They will include drills intended to train one particular skill such as ball control, shooting, passing or dribbling and will be taught so that the campers know why they are doing the drill and what they can do to improve in future. In the afternoon, there shall be a second training session. While the morning one will focus more on technical ability, the afternoon one will focus on tactics. Players will learn about positioning, the role they should be playing for their team depending on the formation, how to use tactics to win football games and much more. This can transform a good player into a great player quicker than technical training, because a player who truly understands this side of the game does not even need to be particularly technically gifted. Strikers especially can be poor football players, but thanks to their understanding and reading of the game, they have a knack to find themselves in the right place at the right time, and that is enough.

About the football Camp and the club

The only American players playing in top clubs in the world, such as Christian Pulisic for Chelsea, tend to have been developed in Europe rather than the US since they are more willing to develop young players, and this camp is the chance to give your child a competitive advantage over other young American players.

New York Red Bulls have shown a true desire to develop players in recent years, setting up the first cost free program in the MLS that provides a learning environment for youth players in the New York metropolitan area.

This shrewd approach to player development has already started to play dividends. The New York Red Bulls II, a reserve team set up in order to increase player development in 2015, managed to defeat Chelsea by 4 goals to 2. This was admittedly in a friendly but is still a good sign of things to come.
