Football Camp The Hamptons – FFF Academy

  • The Hamptons - New York, USA
  • from 730 €

France’s national football team have some of the very best players in the world in each position, such as Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe and Antione Griezmann. They are shining examples of French youth development throughout the world. Youth players’ development is managed by the FFF (Féderation Française de Football). The FFF is in charge of amateur football in France, the French national teams and training coaches and managers. It is the FFF that designs the methodology that the youth teams will follow in order to grow as players and access the professional world of football.

FFF has decided to export this internationally recognised and respected methodology to New York by starting the FFF Academy New York. The same excellent methodology that has produced some of the greatest players in history. France produces more most professional players every year than any other country in the world. FFF and INF Clairefontaine (the national training centre for youth players) are responsible for this high quality development and production, and now, New Yorkers can make the most of it.

The FFF chose Mr Jean-Claude Lafargue as the Technical Director of the FFF Academy New York. He has quite the CV, as he used to be the director of INF Clairefontaine. It is Mr Lafargue who has created the FFF Academy programs and he oversees their implementation. All the coaches are personally trained by Mr Lafargue to make sure they have completely assimilated the FFF methodology, on top of the qualifications they already had. Mr Lafargue is assisted by Zohair Ghenania, the ex FC Lorient manager. He has a BEPF diploma, and has been the Academy FFF director for a year.

The FFF camps take place in Bridgehampton School, an incredible setting in the Hamptons. The campers will train on natural grass pitches in the school located in the small town of Bridgehampton in the Hamptons.

Camp facilities

The essentials

  • An authentic FFF soccer camp with a personalised kit
  • 25 hours of training a week
  • The official “FFF” methodology courtesy of FFF’s technical director
  • Natural grass pitches at the Bridgehampton School

Location

The Hamptons are known worldwide as the upmarket, swanky place New Yorkers go for holidays or weekends. Many tourists also visit to see the beautiful landscape and enjoy the amazing white beaches. Only 40 minutes from Manhattan, it is the perfect place to combine relaxation, beautiful scenery and the laidback vibe of the Hamptons.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense for the FFF Academies to organise football camps in the Hamptons, so that the kids can focus on football while parents take in the sun at the seaside. The FFF Academy welcomes tourists and locals alike for a dream week of football with new friends during the day and evenings spent with family. The campers will train at a school with quality sporting facilities including all natural pitches.

The school is located in the small town of Bridgehampton in the south-east of Long Island. It is a tiny village on the South Fork peninsula. For those not living nearby, FFF Academy also organises football camps in two other locations in New York:

  • FFF Academy football camp – Brooklyn
  • FFF Academy football camp – Manhattan

The sporting Facilities

The FFF Academy Hamptons camps take place the Bridgehampton School. Everyone knows how important sport is in American education, which is why all schools have very good sporting facilities. Bridgehampton School has a gymnasium with stands, a baseball field, a fitness room and gym room.

On the footballing side of things, your kids will train on very high quality natural grass pitches. They are perfect for 11-a-side football, as well as drills and exercises in smaller spaces.

Catering and food

Kids need to bring lunch with them for FFF Academy camps. There will be a one hour lunch break every day so that the campers can eat.

There will be bottles of water available, but it would be better for each camper to bring their own water bottles, which we can of course fill up onsite.

Stage FFF New York

Safety and security

There will only be FFF Academy staff and campers on the pitches and the staff will take care of your children from the moment you drop them off to the moment you pick them up. The campers will therefore be under the supervision of professionals with experience in taking care of kids.

The camp program

Training

The FFF trains and develops its youth players at the INF Clairefontaine, the Blues home in France. All the players from the youth teams spend time there, and all coaches obtain their qualifications from there. Their methodology for developing French players has made France the number one producer of professional players in the world. Up to now, this methodology was exclusive to France, but the expansion to New York is an important step in the growth of the FFF.

Ex director of INF Clairefontaine, Jean-Claude Lafargue is the FFF Academy technical director. He knows exactly what the FFF’s techniques and objectives are, and has an immaculate knowledge of how French national players train and improve. That’s why it made perfect sense to appoint him as the director of the FFF Academy, to be certain that the methodology will be properly implemented at FFF Academy camps.

The training methodology aims to increase each player’s potential with training sessions focused on specific skills and areas of football, to elevate each camper to the next level. One of the main goals of the camp is to prepare the campers for university. The kids will have two training sessions a day:

  • A morning session based on technical exercises like passing, shooting or dribbling, with drills based on repetition. There will also be tactical drills to develop match intelligence, positioning on the pitch and movement based around teammates and opponents.
  • The afternoon session will mostly be made up of matches and tournaments where the campers can apply everything they learnt in the morning. The coaches will be able to see if the kids are implementing everything they learnt or whether they need to re-emphasise some points.

On top of the footballing side of things, the FFF Academy has a very strong emphasis on human values and qualities. The coaches believe in respect, tolerance, enjoyment and commitment, and they will expect the kids to share these values.

Coaches and coaching method

Stage de foot NYC

The FFF academy camps methodology was developed by Mr Lafargue, ex-director of the Institut National du Football en France. All the FFF Academy coaches are highly qualified and have been trained by the FFF Academy technical director. The five day training program is based on technical training drills and exercises that are then applied in matches and games. This allows the coaches to make sure that each child is assimilating and understanding the exercises properly, and that all the objectives, aims and goals of the camp are being met.

This methodology is used at Clairefontaine, which has produced some of the world’s best ever soccer players, like Mbappe, Henry or Matuidi.
