A LETTER TO OUR COMMUNITY
From all of us here at The NYC Soccer Academy, we hope that this email finds you safe and healthy. We thank everyone for remaining patient with us as we determine programming possibilities during this challenging time. Like you, we are equally excited to return to the fields.
Columbia University is still considering whether 2021 summer camps can be safely offered. Our first priority is the health and safety of all participants and staff, and no official decision has been made at this time. We continue to closely track New York City and State guidelines, and we are collaborating with University leadership in order to make an assessment.
2021 tentative dates are as follows:
June 28-July 2
July 12-14 (3days, Goalie/Striker camp)
If it is determined that camps can be safely operated, we will open registration. In the meantime, please click HERE to indicate which camps you are interested in attending - no payment will be collected. Upon final approval to move forward, those who are have indicated their interest will have the first opportunity to register.
Please note that if camps are approved to operate, additional safety requirements may be implemented, such as negative COVID test results, daily health screenings and attestations, and more.
We remain dedicated to the growth of our players and committed to the top-notch training you have come to expect from us over the last 20 years. Our website and communications will be updated as more information becomes available.
Stay safe, and we look forward to meeting you back on the pitch!
Players will be exposed to technical training to improve their ability on the field. Players will also experience competitive game situations that will help develop and improve the skill and confidence required to succeed at every level. Goalkeepers will be used in all sessions and coached by our experienced staff within their assigned groups.
Our staff is comprised of College, ODP, Club, and High School coaches, along with current and former Columbia soccer players. Our staff blends together a wealth of teaching and playing experience, making us one of the best camps around.
The NYC Soccer Academy is dedicated to enthusiastically making better players of all campers.
