The Juventus summer camps are held in four different locations near to the club’s base in the Italian city of Turin. The camps are part of the club’s international sports project known as the Juventus Soccer Schools (JSS) and are designed to improve the technical skills of young players from all over the world.
The Juventus soccer camps are aimed at boys and girls aged between 9 and 17. During their stay is the camp, the students will take part in 22 hours of football training each week, split over two daily sessions. The morning session last 2 and 30 minutes, while the afternoon session is slightly shorter at 2 hours and 15 minutes.
The sessions include physical, technical and tactical training on the field of play as well as theoretical classes where audio-visual material is used to educate the young sports persons in the Juventus way of playing.
The technical program is designed to encourage each student to develop their soccer skills and maintain a high level of motivation.
The boys and girls are inspired to give everything they have on the football pitch and to learn to recognise and improve on the weaker aspects of their game.
In addition, the camp enables students to learn new technical aspects and to expand their tactical knowledge, while cultivating a healthy competitive spirit with fellow students from all over the world.
The training is marked by the slogan:
PLAY, FEEL, GROW AND IMPROVE
The training schedule is adapted according to the age and needs of each boy or girl and includes technical and tactical exercises, individual and group tasks, football matches and a specific program for goalkeepers.
Attention is also paid to the physical side of football including running with or without the ball, passing, shooting with accuracy, teamwork, phases of play, and tactics and strategies for both attack and defence.
The technical coaches at the Juventus soccer camps are all licensed by the Italian Football Federation and have graduated in sports science.
The staff are chosen because they have excelled in the relevant courses at the University of Juventus and because they possess the social skills and motivation required to work with children of all ages.
The objective is to create a first-class training institution that enables coaches and trainers to teach football following the Juventus method.
The Juve style is based on quality, reliability, competence and uniqueness.
Juventus Football Club was founded in 1897 by a group of students from the Liceo Massimo D’Azeglio. The name Juventus (youths) reflected the average age of the very first players to represent the team from Turin.
The team competed in its very first Italian championship in 1900 but did not pass the first round of the competition. After changing their shirt colour from black and pink to black and white in 1905, the team achieved their first success by winning league championship.
The following season Juventus reached the final once again but unexpectedly decided not to play. In 1906, the club was on the verge of disappearing as some members wanted to relocate to Switzerland and change the clubs name.
However, the team survived and after the First World War, Juventus became one of the best teams in Italy. In 1923, Edoardo Agnelli bought the club and they enjoyed success after success, winning many titles.
Between 1930 and 1935, a team featuring Rosetta, Munerati and Bertolini led Juventus to victory in five consecutive Italian championships. The squad also included such skilful Italian-Argentine footballers as Cesarini, Monti and Mumo.
During this era Juventus, were based at the Stadio Municipale Benito Mussolini, having left the Umberto I Velodrome and prior to that, the Corso Sebastopoli and the Corso Marsiglia.
In 1938, they were runners-up in the Italian Football Championship, and in 1938 and 1942 they were crowned champions of the Coppa Italia before football was put on hold during World War II.
In 1947, Gianni Agnelli was named honorary president at just 25 years of age and by 1952 Juventus had won their ninth league title. A 10th championship followed in 1958 and as honourable multi-champions, the Italian side wear permitted to wear the Golden Star for Sport Excellence. They were in fact the first Italian to be awarded this distinction.
While rivals AC Milan dominated Italian football in the 1960s, Juventus returned to prominence in the 1970s winning nine league championships in a 15-year period between 1971 and 1986. In 1977, they also added a UEFA Cup trophy to their collection beating Spanish club Athletic Bilbao over two legs.
During these years, Juve boasted the likes of Gentile, Cabrini, Scirea, Tardelli and Rossi, who were all part of Italy’s 1982 World Cup Winning squad. Foreign stars such as Michel Platini and Liam Brady also hit their peak in Turin at this time.
In 1990, Juventus moved to the Delle Alpi Stadium and within five years, they had secured their twentieth league title, and a second Golden Star for Sport Excellence in the process.
During the 1990s, The Old Lady also won the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Cup, the UEFA Intertoto Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and the Intercontinental Cup.
In 2006, a match-fixing scandal involving players and staff from many clubs including Juventus saw the club demoted to the second division. Many top stars such as Buffon, Del Piero, Trezeguet and Camorenesi stayed at the club and soon helped them regain their top-flight status.
Today, the club once again stands as one of the greats of world football.

While there is an obvious focus on football at the Juventus Soccer School, the summer camp also offers a range of other sports and activities. In addition, there is time set aside for the children to relax, socialise and get to know each other better.
During their stay, the youngsters get the chance to take part in many games and competitions, as well as other sports such as table tennis and volleyball. Therefore, as well as learning to play football, the children learn to thrive in a new environment and have a great time with their new friends.
The afternoons and early evenings are very lively, with games, music and quizzes to keep all of the students entertained. At the end of the day, the campmates can relax and chat with friends, before taking a well-deserved rest.
The hotels chosen by the Juventus organisation for each of the summer camps have been selected according to the quality of the accommodation and the proximity to the sports facilities.
