Virtual Summer Camps

We are excited to announce our Red Bulls Youth Programs Virtual Summer Camps! These Virtual Camps are an extension of our popular Train @ Home program. Our professional Youth Programs staff are experienced in providing virtual training to teams and small groups. Virtual Camps offer a unique, custom-designed 5-day camp experience right in your own home (no rainouts, no sunburn!). Our custom curriculum provides individual technical development with each training session designed for small spaces (eg: living room, bedroom, garage, basement, backyard, etc.).  

Our Virtual Camps provide individual players and teams with the opportunity to interact with their coach and other players each day as they are guided through fast-paced soccer activities for 1 hour each day. These live sessions with Red Bulls Youth Programs coaches are limited to group sizes of 2:12 (coaches:players) maximum ratios to create the highest quality coach-to-player interactions. 

Virtual Team Camps are also available. Click here for more information.

In-person camps are also returning this summer! Learn more.

Virtual Camp FAQs

 Why Red Bulls virtual camps?
The New York Red Bulls Player Development System is a multi-layered approach that provides a professional training environment for youth players. The youth programs are operated as part of the Red Bull's homegrown approach to player development. The Red Bulls draw on extensive support and expertise from a global soccer brand to offer the highest level of youth soccer programs in the Tri-State area. Our coaches receive extensive training that continues throughout their tenure with the Red Bulls, all supporting the coaches' ultimate goal: help players develop and reach their highest potential. This will now be provided virtually
 What makes Red Bulls Virtual Camps different?
RBYP coaches have been teaching in the virtual space since lockdown commenced, by delivering frequent online classes to our extensive network of club partners. Our staff is highly experienced not only with the technologies we use but also in the teaching skills required to optimize a virtual learning environment.
 How much does it cost?
$75 for the week
 How long is the camp program?
One hour from 9:00 am to 10:00 am
 What digital platform will the camp be using?
We will be hosting our sessions on Zoom.
 What device should I use?
We would recommend a laptop or desktop computer, however, a phone or tablet propped up will work just as well.
 Do I need special software or video equipment?
You will just need to make sure you are connected to high speed wifi and ensure your camera and microphone on your computer, tablet or cell phone are working.
 Is the platform safe/secure? What are you doing about online safety?
Keeping in mind our value of safety for our campers, we have worked diligently to identify a platform that meets our standards with adequate safety features. There are four levels of security built into the online platform and with a fifth and best level of security being you the parent. 1. Parent-Child Expectations. The first step to ensure safety for your child is to review our camp standards. It is the expectation for parents to agree to all policies and explain these rules to their child. 2. Password Protected Account. The second step to ensure safety is the requirement for your child to set up a password-protected account to access the platform. 3. Individual Invitation Link. After the personal account is created, your child shall receive an individual link that allows him or her access to the events for the week registered (camp). Without a link, your child cannot enter the platform and participate in the camp. No one is allowed entry into your child's cabin without a personalized link. 4. Regional Coach Approved Entry. The third online safety feature is the requirement for a moderator (Regional Coach) to approve each camper entering cabin specific events. The counselor has the tools to deny entry for anyone not identified as a camper in the room and to terminate entry if the camper engages in inappropriate behavior antithetical to Red Bull culture. Each counselor will have a list of registered campers and a master list for the entire camp by which to cross-check approvals. 5. Zoom security: https://zoom.us/security
 Who will be supervising the online session?
Not only will our organization have the coach running the session, but we will also have one regional coordinator and one Regional manager on the call as well.
 What if I have technical difficulties?
If you experience technical difficulty, you may reach out to one of our staff coaches or regional managers who will assist you with getting the program up and running.
 What do I need to do as a parent?
As a parent, you will need to find up to a 5’x5’ space in your house, clear of furniture or any debris. If it is near a wall or hard surface a ball can bounce off of, that will be helpful as well. After that sit back and watch.
 Can I sign my child up in a private session with their friends?
With small group sizes, the sessions will be fairly small already and your child will be with his friend in that group. We also offer team training as well, which would another avenue for you and your child’s friends.
 How do I log in?
A link will be sent to you by our regional coach, 30 minutes before the camp beginning. This helps to ensure all parties are secure and your child can enjoy the camp.
 What if my child can’t attend one of the days?
If your child is unable to attend one day of camp, you can reach out to our customer service representatives who will assist you in attending another session as a make-up. You would also have the option to take a credit which has no expiration date and can be used on another camp or clinic in the future.
 What equipment will my child need?
Your child will need a soccer ball, cones (items that can be used as cones), water, 5’x5’ space, a shoe with a flat sole, and a growth mindset.
 Will my child be interacting with other players on the camp?
Yes, our staff will have different activities that will allow the children to communicate and interact with one another.
 Do I need to sign-up multiple children separately or can they attend the same session?
We would ask that you register each child before joining the camp, and we will do our best to add them to the same session.
 What will my child receive from attending this camp?
As part of the camp, players will be provided a homework scorecard and access to an exclusive and extensive pre-recorded video library.
 How will the children be grouped on the camp?
The children will be grouped by age on the camp. Example: 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, 13/14.
 What if I was registered for an on-field summer camp?
We are currently assessing our Summer Camp program on a case-by-case basis, week-by-week. Our utmost focus and priority are the safety of the players, parents, and our staff. At this time, no decision has been made regarding the camps scheduled after 7/26. If you were registered for a camp before 7/26, you should have received an email about the next steps. We certainly hope to be back fully operational as soon as it is safe to do so. We will share updates periodically to keep you informed of any changes as well as any progress towards opening back up.
 Can my child attend more than one week?
Yes, but they will need to register for each week individually.
 What happens if I or my child records any part of the virtual camp?
To keep Red bull Virtual Camp safe for all participants, there is no recording allowed. If it is determined that a camper recorded any portion of the camp (i.e. we see an unauthorized recording on social media), they will not be allowed to participate in any future camp functions virtually or physically.
 I have another question; what do I do?
If you still have further questions, we ask that you reach out to us via email or phone 888-370-7287 training@newyorkredbulls.com
 Will there be any appearances from first-team players?
Player appearances will be added subject to availability, these will be held on separate platforms outside of normal camp hours. This will be announced no later than 48 hours in advance.
