Q. What is the camp schedule for the day?
Q. Can a child sign up for multiple camps?
A. Each one of our camps is aimed at focusing on the skills necessary at each step of the soccer life cycle. For information on daily breakdown please see:
A. Yes, we have many campers who sign up for multiple camps. In fact, many campers who participate in several weeks of camp not only improve their skills, but feel more confident in their abilities. Although the camp format will remain consistent, each camp is different with new and fun drills.
Q. What is the coach to camper ratio?
A. Regardless how many campers we have, the ratio of coaches to campers always stays the same (one coach to every ten campers).
Q. Can I place my son/daughter into a higher (lower) skill group?
A. We place great emphasis on placing campers in a comfortable yet challenging group on the first day of camp. Coaches will monitor each campers progress and asses if they would benefit from moving up or down a level. The camp offers great flexibility to offer the best training possible.
Q. How often do you have water breaks? Is there shade at your camp sites?
A. Safety is our number one priority. Our staff is trained to stop for water breaks frequently throughout camp. We make an effort to hold our camps at sites that provide adequate shade and do not get too hot. If necessary, we will put up tents to provide additional shade for the campers. Remember to put sun screen on your child!
Q. Can a six year old participate in a full day camp or should they only do a half day?
A. This is individual for every child. We have had some campers that are only five and have no problem going the entire day, then others are better only staying for a half day. Pick the camp that you think is most appropriate for your child.
Q. What is your employer id number for tax purposes?
A. It is 94-3398791.
