Development of the sport of blind soccer (also known as football 5-a-side) has been limited in North America since it’s introduction at the 2004 Athens Paralympic Games but interest is growing! The camp will be split into two sections: a coaching clinic (aka “Train The Trainer”) and an athlete development camp. International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA) blind soccer chairman, Ulrich Pfisterer (Germany) will direct the camp, empowering the coaches in attendance to get hands-on experience with athletes on the field of play. The goal of the camp is to provide coaches with the necessary tools and knowledge to create blind football programs in their local communities, and for athletes to hone their fundamental skills for the game. The camp will also serve as an identification event for future national team selections.
Room and board will be provided free of cost for the event. Participants are responsible for covering travel expenses to and from the event. USABA membership is also required to attend.
We encourage all interested coaches and athletes to register for the camp before spots fill up.
