The International Soccer Camp will feature a number of new elements in the curriculum and will also include a ground breaking technology feature providing players with an app based platform which will help them prepare before camp, learn skills quicker and more efficiently during the camp, and then help them to continue their education and skill development with camp homework and on-going virtual training throughout the season.
