Training

  • Skill level:Intermediate to advanced
  • Students per training group:15
  • Training language:Italian, English, and Russian
  • Training intensity:3/5

The AC Milan Summer Soccer Camp training program is designed by professional coaches. In fact, some of the coaches who design the program have also played professionally for AC Milan in the past.

The objective of these camps is to improve the skills of each participant and also to make sure each participant enjoys a complete, international summer soccer camp experience. The program is designed for young soccer players who play at an intermediate to advanced level.

During the first few days of camp, participants are evaluated based on their age, physical fitness, and skill level so that they can be placed into age-appropriate and level-appropriate training groups. A coordinator evaluates the physical condition of the students each day to determine exactly what kind of training program they’ll follow on that particular day.

Training is based on three key areas: technical and tactical improvement, athletic development, and psychological development. Participants train for about 20 hours per week. However, if the coordinator determines that the students need rest, they’ll spend less time on the field that day and more time doing exercises to speed up their recovery. 

Each age group participates in different age-appropriate training exercises.

  • Ages 7 to 9 - Ball skills, dribbling, and shooting
  • Ages 10 to 13 - Ball skills, technical and tactical skills, 3v2 or 2v1 skills, zone defense, positioning with and without the ball)
  • Ages 14 to 17 - All aspects of technical and tactical training

Training Facilities

  • Training surface:Natural and Artificial Turf (depending on the location)
  • Additional training facilities:Swimming pool
  • Quality:3/5

The AC Milan Summer Soccer Camps take place at four different locations in Italy. All of which have perfectly suitable training facilities for young soccer players who want to spend a few weeks of the summer improving their skills. The fields are mostly well-kept natural grass fields. Most of which are located just a couple kilometers from where the students find accommodation which means students usually travel to and from their training sessions by private bus. In Asiago, participants take advantage of the camp’s swimming pool for recovery purposes.

Coaches

  • Licenses:UEFA A, UEFA B, UEFA C, and UEFA Pro Licenses
  • Coaching experience:Ex-professional soccer players
  • Playing experience:AC Milan and Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio
  • Languages:Italian (native), Russian (native), and English (intermediate)

At the AC Milan Summer Soccer Camps, the soccer training program is developed by an experienced team of coaches, supervisors, and technical trainers. In fact, many coaches have been professional players themselves.

All of the coaching staff works together to design the training sessions and adapt them to the levels and ages of each training group. Then, supervisors from AC Milan overlook their work to make sure that the training and supervision lives up to the philosophy, methodology, playing style, and values of the club.

The official program director is Luca Santochirico. Other prominent staff members include Pierino Prati, Filippo Galli, Pietro Vierchowod, and Stefano Eranio.

The camp is serious about supervision, and students are supervised 24/7 during their stay to make sure they are always safe and behaving properly.
