Please refer to to the Schedule page for general schedule and check-in times.
The soccer camp is physically demanding. You will be on the field for three sessions a day. We recommend that you start a running and fitness program for approximately six weeks prior to camp in order to arrive at camp physically fit. Do not buy new soccer shoes just before the camp. Give them plenty of break-in time before coming to camp to avoid blisters. If you have a recent injury that may prevent you from fully participating in the camp activities, please contact us prior to the first day of camp. Depending upon the nature of the injury, a doctor’s release may be required for camp participation.
The camp phone number is 1-402-885-8180. During the period of camp, all calls will be forwarded to the staff on duty on campus/in the dorm.
If campers are driving and need to park their car during camp, please see us at check-in. All campers must turn in their car keys at check-in. Commuters must turn in their keys each morning and pick them up from the head trainer each evening when they leave.
- All campers will be divided into groups based upon age and ability. No camper will play out of their age group unless it is with their permission.
- Costs are based on the expectation that all campers will participate in all sessions. Exceptions will be made for serious illnesses or injuries which don’t allow the camper to remain at camp.
- Campers are assigned roommates based on their requests on the application. If more than one roommate is listed, the first one to request that camper will be assigned to that camper.
