The staff at camp is made up of current full-time coaches and former players. Campers take part in daily activities that replicate SABA team practice sessions. We also host exclusive camps with our partner clubs Celtic FC & FC Porto which are directed by staff from their academies in Europe.
Our 2018 camp dates can be found on our home page in the news reel.
SABA has been a part of the community for over 17 years.

Preseason camp prepares players for the upcoming season. Camp runs during a week in August and the schedule differs from the regular summer camp schedule. Dates, times, and location, are communicated to team members months in advance.
Weather advisory is sent via email to all pre-registered parents. Weather alerts are also posted on the website. Camp is on unless it’s raining hard or there is thunder and lightning.
In case of thunder/lightning, the players are immediately taken to the Red Hook Rec Center. If camp location is at a different field, parents will be notified of the location.
Shade breaks are frequent and sun exposure is monitored. Players are reminded to apply and reapply sunscreen throughout the day.
Communication During Camp Hours
During camp hours, if you need to reach the coaching staff, a text might work best. We may not be able to pick up calls while running sessions or if we are organizing contingency plans when weather issues arise.
