(July 15th, 2014) On behalf of Emerald City FC, we’d like to thank all the players who participated in the inaugural Sampdoria ID Camp. We had a great turnout and the Sampdoria coaches were impressed with the level of play and effort all of the players displayed during the week.
The Camp provided our players a wonderful opportunity to experience a curriculum provided by the coaches from UC Sampdoria. Our guest coaches were knowledgeable and provided great encouragement to our players. The response from our players was outstanding. They were both receptive and attentive on the field, they worked very hard to demonstrate their skills and to improve their play.
This camp relationship was a first for our club. However, it is our aim to provide a similar camp experience for our players for many years to come.
Many thanks to Bill Walsh, G.I.S. and our guest coaches for creating this special opportunity for our players. Here's to next year.
