First Camp of the 2017 Summer

DV7 Soccer finishes the first of three summer camps in the New York City Metro area.

DV7 hosted the first camp of the 2017 summer at Ramapo College. The camp provided an opportunity for players in the area to work with DV7 Coaches and to meet David Villa. This year’s camp was both a day camp and residential, with players coming from as far as Orlando, Florida.

“The players worked very hard in every training session showing a good attitude on the field,” said DV7 Coach Marc Sabate. “They behaved well on and off the field, showing a fantastic respect towards each other and the staff. It was a great experience, really educational, with an amazing soccer atmosphere through the week.”

On Thursday, David Villa visited the group. He spent time scrimmaging with each age group before answering questions and taking photographs with the players and parents.

David Villanova, the newest DV7 coach, arrived from Spain days before the camp began. He will be working at the New York City-based DV7 clubs this year and the Ramapo Camp offered David got his first experience working for DV7.

“The DV7 Summer Camp at Ramapo College was an amazing way to start my full-time job soccer coach at David Villa Soccer Academy. We had the opportunity to teach the fundamentals of our soccer philosophy in a wonderful environment. We could notice the progression of the players throughout the week. They worked hard and also had fun.”

DV7 hosts two more camps this summer — at Met Oval and Queens College. Visit for more information.
