Brazil Camp

International Soccer Camp (Brazil)

The soccer camp’s main objective is to provide a safe, fun, and overall amazing experience for every athlete who joins the program. Future Soccer has partnerships with many major professional soccer clubs in Brazil – Santos FC, Sporting Club Corinthians Paulista, São Paulo FC, SE Palmeiras, Red Bull Brasil, and Guarulhos – all based in São Paulo, as well as Clube de Regatas do Flamengo and CR Vasco da Gama based in Rio De Janeiro, where we plan to have camps in the very-near future. There will be three friendly matches with three of these teams (U13, U14, U15, U16, U17, U18, U21, O21), where players will play at the professional clubs’ training grounds against them. Friendly matches against teams like these are not only great experiences for players, but also amazing showcasing opportunities as well. These professional soccer clubs are very competitive and play in the most prestigious international youth tournaments across the globe.

Players will have a detailed training program in which they will follow a specific tactical, technical, and physical training on a daily basis during their stay in Brazil. Professional soccer coaches will lead the training program; who have worked with top clubs and developed top talents in Brazil, and have worked with top clubs. All coaches are bilingual and have very high levels of experience in the Brazilian soccer environment. If a team is registered together, their coach will also accompany them on the trip and assist in the training and development.

Camp participants will spend 11 days in Brazil at the Sorocaba Convention Centre, a facility well known for pre-season training for major clubs in São Paulo. The facility has their own security, professional sized soccer fields, comfortable and clean bedrooms, as well as many other amenities such as a swimming pool, a sauna, and a gym for recovery and training purposes.

The international camp program goes beyond the limit of just training and development; it includes visits and events to maximize the entertainment of players. Players will visit the São Paulo Soccer Museum, a live soccer match, and will spend a day at Boraceia Beach. The visits planned will give players the opportunity to learn more about Brazil and the Brazilian culture.

This provides a major convenience to clubs, participants, and their families.
