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.
Is there specific Goalkeeper Training?
Yes, there is GK specific training at our Philadelphia Camps. Goalkeepers will have 3 training sessions at camp and will also play with their designated team in every match. The 3 sessions consist of: an evaluation session on Day 1 and a keeper specific training session with top-level college keeper coaches on Day 2 and Day 3. On Day 1, goalkeepers need to arrive at McGinnis Hall (Eastern University) at 11am in order to participate in an evaluation session. The additional $50 cost to register as a GK includes all 3 keeper sessions during camp as well as lunch on Day 1 before camp begins.
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.
