Frequently Asked Questions

 

What do you I need to bring to camp?

You need to bring cleats, a properly inflated soccer ball, shin guards, black soccer socks, black soccer shorts, and a water bottle. Each participant will receive a training shirt at check-in.

What happens if there is inclement weather?

An indoor facility is reserved in case of inclement weather. Please be advised that due to natural events out of our control, schedules and times may be revised due to weather.

What is your refund policy?

If an accepted application is withdrawn for any reason up until 14 days prior to the start of the camp session, you will receive a refund less a $100 cancellation fee. No refunds for any reason (i.e., injury, illness) will be given within 2 weeks of a camp session’s start date.

What colleges will be in attendance?

We guarantee a 5:1 player to coach ratio! Head and assistant coaches from across the country have committed to working with and watching YOU. A list of universities currently committed from all divisions is listed on the home page.

Who can attend?

iDiscovered Camps are open to all girls grades 9th-12th. Our camps are specifically designed for players who aspire to play at the collegiate level. However, we also provide elite instruction on the field and in the classroom for those looking for development. 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.

Why 2 days?

It’s the right amount of time on the field. Too often the camp experience is an exhausting one. You go for multiple days, often playing 3 times a day when those same college coaches would never ask their players to train 3 times a day. Conversely, a one-day camp gives you no security if you have a bad performance.

If you play too much, you probably won’t perform to the best of your ability and that will impact the evaluation that is made by the college coaches. We want you performing at your best in every session. If you don’t perform well, you still have another session in that day or on the other day to play to your ability.
