CHICAGO (Sept. 28, 2017) – U.S. Soccer will host a Fantasy Camp in Los Angeles, California in January 2018. This is the first men's camp to be hosted at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Carson and will take place Jan. 26-29 (Friday-Monday).
The program mirrors the U.S. Men’s National Team’s January Camp experience, providing the opportunity for participants to live and train like the senior National Team.
Former U.S. National Team coach Jay Hoffman will lead the camp with former U.S. MNT players. Hoffman has more than 40 years of coaching experience, including as head of the U-20 Men’s National Team, the U.S. Paralympic Team and as assistant coach to Tony DiCicco in 1999, when the U.S. Women’s National Team were crowned FIFA World Cup champions. Hoffman is currently a U.S. Soccer National Coaching Instructional Staff leader.
