Meet The Camp Coaches

Coaches who are driven by a passion to assist young aspiring players to continuously learn and improve on important fundamentals in the game as they progress towards their future goals.

The above statement best characterizes the excellent technical team assembled each and every year since the Sigma FC camps started in 2005. Our own highly respected Sigma FC academy technical staff lead each camp week, providing attendees a very valuable learning experience similar to that experienced by full time players within the academy.

Joining the Sigma FC team during the International camp weeks are coaching colleagues from different premier development clubs around the world. Be it the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Germany, England, Portugal etc, these youth coaches, scouts and directors have all come year after year and provided attendees a rewarding experience, similar to that provided to players back at their own academy. They all remain great technical partners with Sigma to this day, allowing for valuable technical and organizational best practices sharing between each other. Further its quite positive to see many of these educators "graduate" to more senior roles within their club and country, as senior team mangers, national team coaches and club directors!

The quality of coaches/schools attending our university week has been second to none over the years. They come from top programs across North America providing attendees a great look as to the demands of being a student athlete.

We invite you to take a look at our great coaches who have made the camps over the years so special:
