Ali Krieger launched Ali Krieger Football Camps (AKFC) in 2018. AKFC held five camps (youth and adult) in Virginia, and Pennsylvania last year and three camps in Florida in February 2019. AKFC plans additional camps in the midwest, southwest, and northeast in 2019. Future camps will will include offerings for youth, adults and varying levels of experience, along with off-the-field sessions.
Krieger earned her U.S. Soccer “C” Coaching License in 2018 via a program for NWSL players. She brings that education, along with 12 years as a professional soccer player to AKFC. All AKFC participants learn “The Warrior Way” – the mentality and core values that have helped Ali achieve success on and off the field.

We strongly believe all kids should enjoy sports and be excited to participate, whether it is training or game day, and it is our goal to make sure every AKFC event achieves that balance between work and play.
With extensive experience playing professionally in both Europe and the United States, Ali is excited to share a unique blend of styles and skills with young people nationwide.
