Residential Camp | Home

COVID-19 UPDATE: North Central College has closed its campus for the duration of the summer. As a result, we have canceled our 2020 residential camp. We look forward to seeing you all in 2021.

 

CHICAGO FIRE FC BOYS RESIDENTIAL CAMP

Chicago Fire Football Club will be hosting a Boys' Residential Camp from July 12-15, 2020 at North Central College in Naperville, IL.

Now in its second year, our Residential Camp is designed to give serious travel soccer players a professional experience they won’t get anywhere else in Chicago. Players will receive high-level technical and tactical training from Chicago Fire FC coaches focused on preparing them to take the next steps in their development, using the same resources and philosophies as players in MLS.

The Residential Camp will also focus on preparing players off the field using proven sports science techniques such as understanding and improving their nutrition, hydration and sleep, as well as introducing them to the Chicago Fire Academy's PASS program (Performance, Advisory, & Support Services). Guest speakers from the Chicago Fire first-team staff, Academy and club partners will provide a special component to the camp experience. All areas of camp are in place to help players understand what it takes to play at the highest level, and to teach them what they can do outside of practice to develop all aspects of their game.
