Sports Quest Soccer Camp FAQ's
How does the Christian mission of Sports Quest affect the way camp is run?
Our staff takes care of your children in a God-honoring manner. We share stories and lessons from the Bible daily, and we seek excellence in all that we do as a way of honoring God.
What are the typical ages/skill levels at camp?
Ages range from 5-12. Each camp varies with regard to how many older campers (10-12 years old) register. If your child is on the older end and plays at a competitive level our elite camp is probably a better option.
How are the kids grouped? What if my child is more advanced for his/her age?
The campers are grouped by age to begin. They will typically remain in that group for the first day. The coaches are good at challenging kids at their own level and players at any skill level need to practice fundamentals. If the coach feels they should be in a different group for an additional challenge, that can be arranged Tuesday onwards.
Can my camper be placed in a group with a friend/sibling?
Campers are placed in groups by age. If they are the same age, they will already be put into the same group. If they are different ages, please find the Camp Director on the first day of camp during registration to make special requests.
What does a typical camp day schedule look like?
Camp starts out with free play (15 minutes), followed by skills and drills (1 hour). The daily devotional lasts 15 minutes (in the shade!), after which individual and / or group competitions take place. Each day ends with a World Cup Tournament and awards ceremony.
What happens if it rains?
Soccer camp is held outside and we do the best we can to hold camp there regardless of the weather. In the event that a day (or days) of camp is cancelled due to severe weather, every effort will be made to make-up for any missed time during the same week of camp.
What happens if it’s very hot?
We know summer days are very hot and at times there are even heat advisories. Campers will be given shade as often as possible and water breaks are constant on those hot days. We do not cancel camp for heat but we do try our best to make it as comfortable as we can.
Is there a camp option for older, more experienced players?
YES! team camps will be held upon request and pending staff availability for players aged 11-18 who play at the competitive level.
What is the coach to camper ratio for supervision purposes?
For the older campers we keep it at a 12:1 ratio. For the younger campers we keep it at a 8:1 ratio wherever possible.
Who will Coach my Child?
We put on a quality camp with licensed Head Instructors. All staff have current background checks on file.
Can parents stay and watch camp?
Absolutely! Parents are welcome to stay for all or part of each camp session.
What do you wear to a day of camp?
Campers should wear comfortable clothes that they will be able to play soccer in. Also it is recommended that campers have cleats and shin guards.
What happens if I need to cancel my camp registration?
Once you are registered, a $15 administration fee will be charged if you need to cancel your camp registration up to 10 days prior to camp. The remaining balance will be refunded via check in the mail within 10 days of cancellation.
What should I bring to Camp?
You definitely need to bring water or a sports drink to have during break times. Sunscreen is also highly recommended. Campers are allowed to refill their water bottles from our water coolers if they run out.
