Did you enjoy your experience at World Cup Soccer Camps? Let us know about it!
"Hi Damian, my daughter is enjoying the camp. Looks forward to it everyday, she wakes up in the morning and gets ready all by herself. Eager to learn and have fun. Today she got the soccer ball and started juggling the ball showing me what she learned. She is definitely excited with positive energy when we pick her up. Thanks to you and your staff, keep up the great work.

"10 years ago World Cup Soccer Camp provided me with the experience to improve my skills on the field while having fun in a competitive environment. I am very excited to be coaching at the same camp this summer (2016) that fueled my passion for the sport and inspired me to become the player I am today.

"Ruedi, your camps look really great! Great organization, signage, greeting table, uniforms, and curriculum. Fantastic job and thank you.

"My seven-year old twins, Maggie and Liam, just completed a week of camp, June 17-21, 2013. Even though they both like soccer, they were very unsure about attending soccer camp, and there was a bit of arm twisting involved. When I signed up for camp, I couldn't decide between the half-day or the full-day camp because I honestly couldn't imagine what they would do all day without getting bored, but ended up with full-day. My other concern was that while my son is notably athletic, my daughter is notably afraid of the ball, and I wasn't sure if she would feel left out if the focus went to the stronger players. Well, I shouldn't have worried. This turned out to be their favorite camp, and all they talked about was how much fun they had all day long. My daughter won MVP of the camp for Tuesday, and I wanted to send flowers to the coaches for the boost that gave to her confidence. The coaches and the program were great. Each child received so much in attention, skills, confidence, and most importantly for a summer experience, had a BLAST. We'll be back for winter camp! Thanks so much for giving them such a great week."
My three girls, ages 7,7, and 8 just completed your soccer camp (Aug. 12-16, 2013) at the Sunnyvale, CA location. Words cannot describe how pleased I am with your staff. They did nothing short of a miracle, when they were able to get my 8yr old, who really disliked everything about soccer, to participate, and enjoy being there at your soccer camp. Director Tim Yordan and coaches Chris and Doug, were able to inspire my girls to work as a team, and put forth their best effort and attitude. Your staff executed a camp program with a winning combination of structure, instruction, and fun. Thank you so much for making this soccer camp experience such a great one for my children,
Both of my sons Merix (age 7) and Alexander (age 5), enjoyed your camp in San Francisco the first two weeks of this summer. Because it was our first time with you, the final weeks of the summer are being spent at the soccer camp they attended last year. I asked my oldest to compare them, and he said although he enjoyed them both and had positive experiences, he said he felt that at world cup he received more personal attention, there was a wider variation of drills, and that the coaching was a little stronger. As a result, we will try to send our children to your camps exclusively going forward.."
My daughter Nikkie attended this camp after being out sick of the 8/15 camp. She was stressed about going as she didn't know anyone in the session. She had been to other camps where she knew several kids but never wanted to return. I'd like to thank you for providing her a great experience. She was there from 9 to 3pm and got some great exercise and had fun. I look forward to next year and perhaps enrolling my 6 yr old as well. Thank you for being so good with kids!! this was my daughter's best experience with a summer camp."
"To learn soccer skills, and competitive life skills, like good sportsmanship and professional deportment and demeanor, we're sticking with WCSC by Ruedi Graf"

"This was my favorite summer camp --- I loved it. [The] instructors were great and I really developed my skills and got better. I'd give the Camp a 5 out of 5. I can't wait to go next summer!"
"Thanks so much. We look forward to having Charlie participate in future camps with you. Seriously, of all the different activities in which Charlie participated this summer, he counts his week with you one of the top 2 (the other one was his week with me in Maui)!"
Theresa, Foster City
"My son Gino was part of your 5/6 year old summer camp group. After a week at camp, he played on our local team and we were amazed-he was a little star and scored countless goals-I mean WE stopped counting !!! You are THE best, and going to your camp was the best thing we did for him last year. Thanks so much."
Marci Palatella, Hillsborough
"Year after year, the kids enjoy the camps so much, we are now planning our vacation around it. The coaches are always very friendly and knowledgeable ! "

"On the last day, we get to play the coaches and it is great for kids who love soccer !"

"As I get ready to send my last child to college to study and play soccer, I look back on the many things which helped my boys develop as people and as soccer players. Certainly one of the fondest memories is of Ruedi and the many sessions of World Cup Soccer Camps and Clinics attended by my children over the years. It not only enriched their soccer experience and helped their competitive edge but was FUN. As a parent it was important to me that they had excellent role models at camp as well. Both my children have gone on to coach, perhaps in part because of their positive experiences at camp, and it makes them smile when their young players show up in the World Cup Soccer Camp t-shirts. Thanks for the great times Ruedi and welcome to the next generation of World Cup Soccer Campers..."
