After 15 years of elite professional playing experience, Tony Sanneh wanted to share his knowledge and experiences with kids from his native state of Minnesota as well from across the region.
Thus, Sanneh Soccer in 2009.
Since it’s inception, the camps have grown to reach an international audience extending as far as the US Virgin Islands. While playing professionally, Tony established the only camp in the Midwest designed and implemented by a player with experience competing in the World Cup, Major League Soccer and the prestigious UEFA Champions League. The goal of the camp has always been to provide an environment where players of all levels can come together to learn about the game and improve their soccer skills.
The camp atmosphere is such that players from all communities can be united through their excitement for the sport while making working on the game as fun as it is rewarding. Tony has assembled a staff of local and national coaches to teach soccer based on the experiences and methods that Sanneh himself has accumulated throughout his extensive career at the highest levels of the sport. The same ideology is used to adapt the training to individual camper’s ability and ambition. The camp aims to provide a fun and fulfilling atmosphere for all campers while focusing on appropriate levels of skill and intensity for individual campers.
Lastly, Sanneh Soccer Camp understands the importance of shaping the development of young men and women beyond the field and actively works to incorporate guidance and information about health, education, drugs and alcohol, and cultural awareness and sensitivity.
