How are campers divided/grouped?
In general, campers are divided by age and not skill level. During the week coaches may make some minor adjustments based on skill level to help a player's overall experience.  Please understand this is a camp, not a club team and we cannot guarantee or know in advance the overall competitive level of the collective camp.   

 

Can campers be paired with friends/teammates?
We do our best to group friends/teammates together, but there are no guarantees those requests can definitely be met. If a request can't be met for some reason, there will be plenty of time throughout the day for campers to be with friends (playing sessions, lunch, film, snack breaks, etc.), even if they're not on the same team.

 

Inclement Weather
We will hold camp rain or shine.  In the event of inclement/unsafe weather, we will do our best to utilize indoor space to continue camp training. However, because there are other camps in session at the same time we are limited in our facility space, so we will likely supplement with film sessions and other games until the weather passes.

If the inclement weather occurs at drop-off or pick-up, staff members will direct you to the proper location.

 

Athletic Trainer: There will be a certified Athletic Trainer present at all times at the camp.  The trainer will be available to meet with you Monday morning at Registration if you have any questions or pre-existing conditions.
