Q: Are teams welcome?
A: Teams are encouraged to attend camp. At our Elite Residential Camp, they are trained and housed together. We find that high school teams gain great benefit from attending our Elite Camp and use it as a preseason mini-camp. For the team discount, 12 or more players must sign-up and applications be sent in together if applying by mail. If you wish to sign up on-line, contact Coach Heaney for a code to receive the team discount. The coach may attend free with the team.
Q: What do campers do in their free time?
A: There is really very little free time, with a full schedule for the campers.
Q: How much money should my child bring?
A: Your child will only need money to buy pizza at night or for drinks and snacks from the camp store. We do have a camp bank, which you can deposit money into at check-in, with any balance returned at check-out. The camp store also has UNCW soccer items for sale, if your son wishes to purchase a memento.
Q: Do the dormitories have phones in their rooms?
A: No. I would recommend a cell phone or a phone card.
Q: Are parents and coaches allowed to watch training sessions?
A: Yes, you may attend any of the training sessions to watch! Parents however are not permitted onto dormitory halls with their child during camp purely from a safety and supervisory standpoint.
Q: Are campers allowed to drive their own cars to camp?
A: Yes, but we require that you notify our dorm supervisor and your keys be handed over for the duration of camp.
Q: What if I arrive a day early or need to depart late?
A: We are not able to house campers who arrive early or need to depart late, due to dorm issues. Please contact Coach Heaney at email@example.com if you need hotel contact information to arrange lodging before or after camp.
