Soccer Camp Brooklyn – FFF Academy

  • Brooklyn - New York, USA
  • from 600 $

The Fédération Française de Football (FFF) is the organisation that manages and organises soccer in France, from the amateur level to the national teams. After its first World Cup victory in 1998, French youth development and French talent started getting the recognition that it deserved.

Some of the very best players in history were a part of the 1998 French sqaud: Zinedine Zidane, Thierry Henry, Laurent Blanc, Marcel Désailly to name a few. After the World Cup, INF Clairefontaine (the French national soccer training centre) became a globally recognised name. Synonymous with excellence, INF Clairefontaine has produced generations of incredible players, such as Nicolas Anelka and Kylian Mbappé. With another World Cup victory in 2018, French youth development once again received the plaudits it deserved.

As well as its achievements, French youth development is also the best in the world in terms of numbers, better even than Brazil and Spain. Indeed, France produces more professional players than any other country in the world every year. With that in mind, in 2021, the FFF decided to export its model and expertise by creating the FFF Academy: French Football Academy.

It has landed in Brooklyn with a simple aim: to organise totally authentic, week-long FFF soccer camps for the young players of New York. The training methodology, that has created so many French superstars, was put in place by Jean-Claude Lafargue. He used to to be the INF Clairefontaine director, and he regularly visits the FFF Academy in Brooklyn to properly implement the FFF development strategy. Zohair Ghenania, ex FC Lorient manager and holder of an official BEPF coach diploma, manages the day-to-day business of the FFF Academy Brooklyn.

Your children will spend an incredible week playing soccer on brand-new, latest generation artificial pitches at Brooklyn Pier 5, which also happens to have an incredible view of Manhattan. The FFF methodology in place at the camps will help your kids get to the next level in their soccer development and skills, as well as preparing them for university.

It is worth knowing that the FFF organises camps in two other New York locations:

  • FFF Academy soccer camp – Manhattan
  • FFF Academy soccer camp – 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
  • Incredible artificial pitches with an unmatched, magnificent view of Manhattan

Location

The FFF Academy camps take place in Brooklyn, a few minutes from Brooklyn Bridge. In fact, the pitches are located in a park named the Brooklyn Bridge Park. From the centre of Manhattan, the pitches are only a ten minute drive or subway ride away.

Brooklyn is New York City’s most populous borough and is constantly expanding. It is linked to Manhattan through three different specific spots, with by far the most famous being the legendary Brooklyn Bridge. As well as sensational views of Manhattan, Brooklyn offers a different side to New York, a more artistic and hipster side. It was therefore a logical decision for FFF to settle in Brooklyn. With more than 2,6 million inhabitants, there are more than a few soccer fans wandering about!

The other available locations for soccer camps in New York City:

  • FFF Academy soccer camp – Manhattan
  • FFF Academy soccer camp – Hamptons

 

The sporting Facilities

The FFF Brooklyn soccer camps take place in the Brooklyn Bridge Park. The park, which borders the Hudson River, is a go-to spot for sporty people in Brooklyn. Basketball courts, volleyball courts, tracks for running, ping-pong tables and even kayaking spots, there is something for everyone. The area is totally dedicated to sports and fresh air: what better place for a soccer camp?

The pitch itself is located in Pier 5. It is a top of the range artificial pitch. Full sized, it is perfect for 11-a-side soccer as well as 7-a-side soccer on half pitches. It is probably the only soccer pitch in the world with a breath-taking view of the Manhattan skyline. The view is simply unforgettable.

The camp program

Training

France is widely regarded as being the best country for developing young players and is also the country that produces the most professional players every year. The FFF Academy wants to expand and export this expertise so that young players from all over the world can benefit from it.

Jean-Claude Lafargue, who used to be the director of the Institut National du Football en France (the National Institute of Soccer in France), is now the FFF Academy technical director. He has designed and implemented training programs from the FFF Academy for these camps, based on how the French national team youngsters train at Clairefontaine.

This means the campers will be following the same training program as the young professionals training at the INF Clairefontaine, who are likely to become top players. The aim of the camps is to help each player unlock their potential and take them from playing at an amateur level to a professional level, as well as preparing them for university.

For this, there will be two training sessions a day:

  • A session in the morning from 9 AM to 12 PM, which will be dedicated to technical exercises (passing, dribbling, shooting, explosivity…). There will also be drills and exercises in tight spaces to develop speed of play, transitional play and speed in execution.
  • A session in the afternoon from 1 PM which will entirely comprise of matches on big pitches. This allow the campers to put into practice all the skills and techniques they learnt in the morning.

It is not just soccer however: human values are also given a lot of importance at FFF Academy camps. Shared by the coaches, values and morals will be at the heart of every training session and each camper must respect them: enjoyment, respect, tolerance, solidarity and commitment. It is very important for the kids to develop and progress on the pitch, but it is just as important for them to be good people off the pitch. Everyone will need to buy in to and respect the FFF values.

Coaches and coaching method

Stages de foot New York

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.
