Over the weekend, Downtown United Soccer Club teamed up with Gotham FC for a Fantasy Camp where fans got the chance to learn, train, and play with superstars of the NWSL.

Headed up by DUSC Operations Manager and Women's Technical Director, Leanne Campbell, registrants met at SoFive Brooklyn for a day of training.  These lucky fans were joined by Gotham FC captain, McCall Zerboni, and Gotham Reserves captain, Samantha Rosette.

 

 

Participants were put through a series of warmups, skills training, and then a mini tournament to end the session.  They got one-on-one time with Zerboni and got a taste of what daily practice may look like for the pros.
