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! Visit our website to
learn how the sport works
. 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.

We encourage all interested coaches and athletes to register for the camp
before spots fill up. Click here to register
