Residential Camps:

Bring your pursuit of playing like a pro to reality with the Chicago Red Stars residential camp. During a 4 day, 3-night stay, campers will experience first hand what it takes to train like the pros. The Red Stars Residential camp schedule mimics a normal day for a professional player during the regular season. From early morning yoga and light movement preparation, technical sessions, film sessions and tactical classroom sessions, to small and big sided games players will participate in activities similar to the pros. Campers will participate in an immersive soccer-focused environment where they are taught by both high-level licensed coaches, Red Stars staff, and current professional players from the Chicago Red Stars team in the National Women’s Soccer League. While players are continuously coached and evaluated by camp staff, they are run through exercises designed to both learn new skills and master current ones.  They will also participate in daily competitive soccer games on an age appropriately sized field.

Unlike other Midwest residential soccer camps for girls ages 8-17, the Red Stars residential camps are the only ones where participants will come away having had the unique experience of interacting with current professional players, like the ones many aspire to be. All campers receive a Red Stars Academy t-shirt, free ticket to a Red Stars game, as well as other giveaways throughout the week.
