Q: What is a typical player to coach ratio?  

A: 6 to 1 

Q: How are players grouped at camp?  

A: Players are grouped initially by age. Once our staff has had the opportunity to evaluate the players, we may move players around to guarantee each player is challenged. 

Q: Will players have a dedicated coach the whole week?  

A: All residential staff members remain with the same group for the entire week. These dedicated staff members assist the group with their daily schedule and attend all activities with them (on and off the field).

Q: How much soccer training do they receive?  

A: 12 on-field sessions OR roughly 20 hours (see our daily/weekly schedule for a breakdown).  We pride ourselves on being able to find a healthy balance for each player. 

Q: What will my child receive at camp?  

A: Each player will receive one Nike Valeo residential training shirt, three meals a day (serving a wide variety of dietary needs), optional purchase of snacks and drinks.

Q: Are there other things to do at camp aside from soccer?  

A: Our residential program offers some “break” from soccer.  Each day we will have swimming, team building, outdoor competitions, talent shows, etc.  

Q: What if my son/daughter is sick or injured?  

A: Our camp has a 24-hour medical staff on site to ensure that player’s needs are taken care of. The medical staff member is state certified and will be in communication with parents regarding any injury or sickness throughout your child’s stay.
