Columbus Crew and Brian McBride Attacking Soccer Academy Camp

Columbus Crew and Brian McBride Attacking Soccer Academy Camp


The Columbus Crew has partnered with club icon Brian McBride and his Attacking Soccer Academy on a series of camps in Columbus from July 14-16. Two separate three-day camps will be offered for boys and girls from the Under-13 age group and older at the Value City Fields at Easton, one from 9-11:30 a.m. each day and one from 12-2:30 p.m.
The cost of $225 per participant includes a 30-minute warm-up and one-hour training session with McBride and a one-hour training session with longtime Crew midfielder and current TV analyst Duncan Oughton, and a ticket to the Crew’s game vs. the San Jose Earthquakes on July 16.
Thought Processing (at pace); Dynamic Movement; Technique; Heading (inside/outside the box); and Pure Shooting. Brian will personally train each player in these five main emphases. During trainings, he will make sure to correct the small things that can make a good player great. In today’s soccer, the minutia is what can change things for a player, his or her team and eventually helping them get where they want to be. The training will be focused to help each individual understand his or her roles in each position.

“I am excited to get back to Columbus to help the Crew grow the sport of soccer from the youth level up,” McBride said. “My family and I have many great friends and memories in the community and we look forward to returning next month.”
