Camp Q&A

How to Register

You can register online for any USF Soccer Camp at www.usfsoccercamps.com. After you have registered for any of our camps online, you will receive an immediate registration confirmation via email.  If you are a first time user, you will be asked to create an online account, with a username & password, and if you are an existing user, you can log into your existing account and sign up. In addition, if you are a returning user, please be sure to update your child’s information, especially their age at camp and emergency contact information. The online registration process also allows you, to order in advance, any camp gear that you also may need. We accept all major credit cards (MC, Visa, Discover & American Express).

Deposits and Payments

We offer a 30% deposit option for all of our camps! If you choose to register with and opt and authorize the 30% deposit option you currently will not be autobilled the balance until May 31st.

We will not be accepting account balance payments at camp check-in, all payments must be paid prior to camp, and by the balance due date.

Camp Gear

Under Armour Camp uniforms (jerseys & shorts) with USF Logos, training tees, balls, sac pacs (ball bags), and additional items will be available to pre-purchase during online registration. It is a good idea to purchase these items in advance, as we do sell out, sometimes even prior to the camp start date. Pre-purchasing items online helps ensure that your child will receive the gear they need and the correct size at check-in. All pre-ordered items will be ready for your child at check-in, in a bag at the check-in tables. Please make sure when you check-in to let the staff person know you pre-ordered items. Our camp gear is not required to be used or worn, but many campers like to have the camp uniform, training tee, ball, and other items to wear at camp and to bring home with them. All of our custom uniforms & training tees are made by Under Armour, and they are made with the best materials to keep your child cooler and more comfortable.

Do I need to bring a Waiver & Release form to camp Check-In?
The Waiver & Release Form is completed electronically during your online registration, it does not need to be printed or brought in with you.

Do I need to bring a Medical Form if my child is not taking any medication?
The Medical Form is only required to bring with you to check-in if your child will need to take any medications while at camp. All medications are to be labeled clearly with your child’s name and with instructions on how often and how much to be administered to your child. Please bring medications to check-in in a zip loc bag labeled with your child’s name. At check-in, please let the person checking you in know that you have the Medical Form and Medication and they will direct you to the right person to speak with and to give these too. If your child uses an inhaler, even if only for in an emergency, please complete the form, and bring the inhaler labeled in a zip loc bag. You can authorize on the form for your child to be permitted to keep the inhaler in their bag, but please make sure it is labeled, in a zip loc bag, and the Authorization of Medications Form will need to still be handed in at check-in.

Will I have a roommate at either of the Residential Camps?
We will do our very best to accommodate all roommate requests. To guarantee a roommate request, both campers must request each other on the Roommate Preference #1 line in their online registration. Confirmation of roommate requests will only be given at check-in, and cannot be given out prior to that, since the room assignments are not completely finalized until the day of check-in. If more than two campers would like to room together, one parent from the group must be designated to send in the group of names, and we will work with that list and their online registration roommate requests to pair them together or close to each other. If you arrive at check-in, and believe your roommate assignment is incorrect, or you are not roomed with your group or team, please ask to speak with the camp director. This is a situation that can be fixed very easily.

Do you provide evaluations?
Yes, evaluations will be provided on the last day of camp for all campers entering their Junior or Senior years in high school. These evaluations will be an honest assessment from your coach based on your potential to compete at the inter-collegiate level.

Where can I find a detailed itinerary / schedule for the camp I am attending including check-in and check-out times?

Please visit our Camp Schedules webpage at: Camp Schedules

Can I Pay by Credit Card or use my Bank Account

Yes you can pay by credit card or debit card. We no longer accept electronic checking account payments.

Camp Registration/Check-in For the June Residential/Commuter Camp

You will receive additional check-in information with the time and locations the week prior to the camp. At registration, you will check in, and if you are a residential camper, you will receive your room key & roommate assignment. All campers will also have the option of creating a camp bank for the camp store, & pick up any camp gear they ordered in advance. If you require our trainer to administer medication or if they need to be aware of any medical conditions or injuries you may have, you will need to bring the Medical Form, which will be attached to your registration confirmation email. You will also be given the opportunity to speak to the trainer in person at check-in.

Is there a key deposit required for residential campers at the June Residential Camp?

At the time of online registration authorization is required that if your keys are lost, not returned in, or if the door or lock is damaged in anyway, a $65.00 charge will be assessed and charged to the account provided and used to make payment at the time of registration.

Is there a camp store at the USF Tampa Campus ½ Day & Full Day Camps?
Yes, we will have a camp store at check-in & check-out, at all USF Tampa Campus camps, to purchase soccer gear. We will have a camp snack stand on the main practice field during camp. We strongly recommend campers to use a camp bank, which needs to be set up at check-in, so they do not need to carry cash. You have the option of leaving money for your child in their camp bank. This will ensure that your child does not lose their money during camp. We ask that parents make a cash deposit into the camp bank at camp check-in. Your child then charges against the money in their bank during the week for snacks. At camp check-out, we refund any unused money in an envelope. It is up to the parent’s discretion how much money they decide to put in the bank. The camp snack stand is open all week, offering snacks, snow cones, & ice cream.

Is there a camp store at the June Residential/Commuter Training Camp?
We will have a camp store at check-in and in the dorm during camp. We strongly recommend campers to use a camp bank, which needs to be set up at check-in, and to not carry cash. The camp bank ensures that a camper does not lose their money during camp. We ask that campers make a cash deposit into the camp bank at camp check-in. Campers then charges against the money in their bank during the week for what they need. At camp check-out, we refund any unused money in an envelope. The camp store is open all week, including snacks, ice cream, late night pizza, soccer gear, uniforms, balls, etc… Camp bank unused balances must be picked up at check-out.

Do Campers need to bring their own cold drink to camp?
We will have large drinking coolers of water at all of our camps. In addition, with the purchase of our Unlimited Powerade Package, campers can have access to unlimited cold Powerade on the fields all week for only $13.00 at four day camps, and $15.00 at our residential camps. This makes it easier so you do not need to worry about bringing enough cold drinks, and worrying how you are going to keep it cold all day. The Unlimited Powerade Package can be pre-ordered during your online registration, or at check-in.

Campers with Food Allergies/Special Diets
We will accommodate campers with food allergies and special diets, the best that we can. If you are attending any of our camps on the USF Campus and your child will be having meals with us; once at camp, please ask to speak with the camp director at check-in to arrange for your child to be able to meet with the dining hall chef, who will be able to go over with your child what they can and can’t eat. We are not able to control what other campers may be eating at camp, or what will be available to your child in the dining hall, but your child will have enough options at the dining hall to avoid foods they may be allergic to. If you feel more comfortable, they can also bring their own meals.

Shuttle Transportation from Airport
For tHose campers that are attending one of our camps at USF and traveling from out of the local area, we are unable to provide transportation to and from the airport, due to the fact that we have so many campers flying in at all different times of the day, but you can use the following ground transportation link on Tampa International Airport's website to see available options, including taxi service and airport limos at:

Adult/Coach Supervision for Residential Campers?
Camp staff members are spread out throughout the on-campus dorms, where the campers stay, throughout the evening. In between sessions, we have hall monitors walking the halls and campus police patrols the entire campus. Attendance is taken regularly, and each camper is assigned to a specific group and coach.


Cell Phones/Tablets/Laptops at Residential Training Camp
There are no payphones in the dorms, or phones in their rooms. Campers may bring a cell phone, and it may only be used in the dorm room. A tablet (iPad) or laptop is not permitted. All cell phones must be turned off at lights out, and cannot be brought out to the fields during practice or games. Campers are responsible for their phones, if they are lost, stolen, or damaged.

Reaching your Child at Camp?
At registration/check-in you will be provided with the direct cell phone numbers of the three camp directors as well as the trainer’s cell phone. These cell phone numbers are to be used only in cases of an emergency or if you have a serious concern. You can also contact your child for non-emergency related calls on their cell phone if they choose to bring one, understanding that they will not have it on them, when they are on the fields.

Can I watch my Child Train at Camp?
You can watch your child during camp at any time at any of our camps. At our Residential/Commuter Training Camp most parents attend the evening session when we are playing our league matches. We do not allow any coaching from the parents, or any type of negative cheering towards any camper, and we ask that parents keep a comfortable distance from the where the campers are training/playing.

Closing Ceremonies
Everyone is invited to attend a brief awards ceremony on the last day of camp. Please go to our camp schedules page for specific camps closing ceremony times.

Check Out at June Residential/Commuter Training Camp
Check out will directly follow the closing ceremonies. All residential campers will be instructed to thoroughly clean their room the night before. We will have coaches spread out on every floor doing room checks. Once a coach checks your room, they will hand you a ticket to go to the check out location. You then turn your key in and the key administrators will initial your ticket which you should keep as a receipt that your key was turned in. Keys must be turned in at checkout to avoid being charged.

At check out campers will be able to retrieve any camp bank balance unused, and make any additional purchases at the camp store. Camp banks must be signed for and picked up at camp checkout.

Personal Items Policy
USF Soccer Camps is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged personal items of a camper, a camper's guests, or family, and are not responsible to replace them in any way. Parents, guests, family and campers who bring personal items, including cell phones, or any other electronic devises or personal items, bring them at their own risk. In the event an item is lost, please first check the lost in found that can be found at the camp store. If there is not a camp store at your camp, please ask to speak to the camp director at check-in or check-out to see if they found the item. Please do not contact the camp office during camp about lost items, the office is not located at camp, and is not in possession of the lost and found items. USF Soccer Camps is unable to guarantee that if an item is found, that it will be in the camp's possession at the time you come to pick it up, and these items can only be kept for a short period of time. We are unable to mail out any lost items or items that are left behind at camp, unless shipping pre-payment is arranged with our camp office.
 

Campers with Car
Campers planning to drive themselves must notify a camp administrator at check-in, so that we can issue them a parking permit for the week, and direct the camper where to park. Once the camper parks in the correct location and puts the parking permit on the windshield, we will collect their keys. The camper’s car will not be accessible through the duration of the camp. Please understand that this policy is in place to insure the safety of the camper and other campers.

WEATHER DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS
In the event that inclement weather prohibits the players to train outside at any of our events, if indoor facilities are available, players will be moved inside to train, or will be brought to a safe indoor or covered area until the weather has passed. USF Soccer Camps will do its best under these circumstances and the facilities being used, to keep the players active, but their safety is our first priority. If a training session is missed during an event and is unable to be taken indoors, we will do our best to make up that session during the remainder of the event. USF Soccer Camps is unable to issue any type of credit or refund for inclement weather prior to or during an event, many expenses have already been paid for to hold the event. In the case of a catastrophe, such as but not limited to a natural disaster, hurricane, flood, earthquake, crime or terrorism, sickness outbreak, or war; and USF Soccer Camps is unable to hold the event, USF Soccer Camps will retain the right to determine if the camp can be postponed. If the camp is postponed to a later date, USF Soccer Camps retains the right to decide the postponement date, and retain all registration fees paid for the camp to hold the camp on the postponement date.
