Frequently Asked Questions
Who can attend?
Future 500 ID Camps are open to boys (grades 9-12) and girls (grades 8-12) who aspire to play at the collegiate level. All camps must be available to any and all entrants, and those entrants can only be limited by number, gender, age, and/or grade level.
Commuter vs. Residential?
Residential: includes a dormitory room and all meals during camp. Lunch will not be provided after registration on Day 1 nor after camp finishes on Day 4. Campers that need a room the night before camp begins and/or the night after camp ends will need to pay an additional fee.
Commuter: Does NOT include a dorm room on campus, only lunches and dinner during camp. Lunch will not be provided after registration on Day 1 nor after camp end on Day 4. Commuters will have the same daily schedule as resident campers and should plan to leave campus after the evening seminar at approx 10PM.
*Future 500 highly recommends the Residential option for campers that want the complete Future 500 experience!
what is the film package?
Future 500’s Film Package will provide campers with downloadable links to all of their 11v11 (unedited!) matches from Future 500, including All-Star Games. All video will be shot from elevated video towers in HD by experienced, professional videographers. All video will be of the highest definition and quality. Again, the 11v11 game footage that campers receive will be unedited…not a highlight reel! For more information and to see sample footage from 2018, check out our Film Package Page
If you haven’t yet signed up for camp, add the Film Package to your registration. Already signed up? Log in to your camp account to add the Film Package or email email@example.com . Campers that buy before April 1 will receive a $60 discount. Price increases to $259 on April 1.
Is there specific Goalkeeper Training?
Yes, there is GK specific training at our Philadelphia Camps. Goalkeepers will have 2 training sessions at camp and will play with their designated team in every match. The two goalkeeper-specific sessions will be conducted by a NCAA Coach on Day 2 and Day 3. The additional $50 cost to register as a GK includes both keeper sessions during camp.
Keeper training times are carefully planned so GK’s never miss their team’s matches for keeper training. To help increase opportunities for keepers to be recruited, we provide brief evaluations on every keeper at camp to all college coaches within 24 hours after the start of camp. We believe this to be a very helpful way to aid colleges looking to identify keepers and ultimately leads to more keepers being identified as a result of camp.
Who will be coaching us at camp?
Head and Assistant Coaches from all colleges listed (and more) will be in attendance and coaching. The structure of camp provides college coaches with ample opportunities to identify and evaluate players thoroughly. Additional college coaches that are not part of our staff are also invited to attend sessions for recruiting purposes. Player rosters are provided to all college coaches that attend.
