Calling all soccer enthusiasts: The AC Milan Junior Camp presented by the Italian Soccer Training Program (ISTEP) is returning for a pair of week-long camps at Michael J. Tully Park in New Hyde Park from June 28-July 3 and July 7-12.
The camps will be held daily from 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be conducted by trainers from the AC Milan soccer club of Italy. ISTEP aims to foster the development of U.S. youth soccer players and programs on Long Island and establish a player exchange program for Italian and American youth players.
This is the second summer that the camp is offered in North Hempstead.
“We are proud to welcome these world-class soccer trainers to North Hempstead,” Supervisor Bosworth said. “This is such a unique experience for young athletes here in the Town as they will get the opportunity to learn from some of the best trainers in the world right here in their own backyard.”
The camp features specific individual player objectives for strikers, defense and goalkeepers to improve their effectiveness on the field. The clinic features trainers that played professionally in Italy and are UEFA A and B certified.
Fees for the week long camp are $585 which includes the uniform kits with the AC Milan official home and away jerseys. There is a discount available if you wish to sign up for both weeks.
