Q: What is a typical player to coach ratio?
A: 8 to 1
Q: What is the Cell Phone Policy?
A: We realize kids will want to bring their electronics and mobile phones. Not only are cell phones and other electronics expensive and can get stolen or lost, but also their usage can interfere with and even sabotage a child’s overall experience at camp. A camper that spends so much time immersed in technology or communications may do so at the expense of getting to know fellow campers and counselors. Summer camp offers a great opportunity to learn about and navigate social situations while not being constantly connected to and immersed within a digital/virtual world. We also want to make sure that all campers and parents feel safe knowing that there kids are safe from social media posts and interactions while with us. For these reasons there are no mobile phones, tablets, computers, gizmos or any other similar device allowed at camp. If you need to get in touch with your child we ask that you reach out to camp director Patrick Mulcahy at 315-415-3834. If there is any emergency at camp, out onsite nurse or coaching staff will immediately reach out to you.
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 a Dri-Fit In The Net 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.
