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!
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.
