CHICAGO FIRE RESIDENTIAL CAMP

The Chicago Fire 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 coaches (minimum USSF B License), 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. Guest speakers from the Chicago Fire 1st team staff 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.
