Elite Camp I | Grades 5th - 9th | Goalkeeper
As many of you know, our summer camps fill up quickly and unfortunately, sometimes we have to turn campers away. Due to the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 virus we have established a way for you to reserve your spot in camp with a very minimal financial commitment. Now you can claim your spot in camp for only a $100 deposit! When your camp is confirmed to take place, you can easily pay the balance online. Should we have to cancel the camp due to COVID-19, your deposit would be refunded less the Ryzer convenience fee of $5.
Elite Camp I
The 14th Annual Elite Camp takes place July 6th - 9th and provides 5th - 12th graders with a very competitive, fun, and educational environment. In addition, our 10th-12th graders will gain college exposure and professional coaching. The 5th - 9th graders will follow a similar schedule through-out the week, receiving intensive instruction on the technical and tactical aspect of the game preparing them for the next level in age appropriate training groups. All players have the option for an additional $50 to participate in 2 extra hours of non-contact more intensive skill work for one hour on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Elite Camp staff is one of the finest in the country, made up of more than 25 college and club coaches from across the nation representing all NCAA levels: DI, DII, DIII, and NAIA. The design of this camp will involve training and games. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided to all resident campers (lunch and dinner to all commuters). The players will be provided multiple sessions Monday-Thursday (weather permitting). Sessions are considered to be either games or training. A tentative schedule will be given to campers at check-in.
Further communication will be emailed to ALL families June 30th with final reminders, required forms, maps, packing list, welcome packet, etc. that you will need in preparation for camp. Please note your registered email address is the one in which all communication will be given.
Roommate Requests: GVSU will make every effort to honor your roommate requests. To ensure your roommate, please provide the request in the appropriate area of the application. Please spell all names correctly. Campers will be housed in air conditioned dorms that offer quad or double rooms.
Goalkeeper Program: This is a daily training program for part-time and full-time goalkeepers. Our coaching staff will work with goalkeepers on specific technical and tactical ideas along with conditioning drills and exercises. All areas of goalkeeper training are covered including: shot saving, distribution, handling air balls, one-on-one scenarios, controlling the penalty area, and communication from the back. All participants will train with both their designated team for the week as well as receive extra position specific goalkeeper training.
Once registration is complete, you will receive a welcome letter that will give you additional information with regards to our summer camp including a medical waiver and concussion form that is to be BROUGHT TO CHECK IN. PLEASE DO NOT MAIL IN AHEAD OF TIME.
Refund Policy: An $80.00 administrative fee will be deducted from all refunds regardless of the reason. Refund requests must be made in writing before 10 days prior to the first day of camp session in which the camper was originally enrolled. NO REFUNDS for any reason (i.e., injury, illness) will be given 10 DAYS PRIOR to camp.
In the event of an entire camp cancellation due to COVID-19, you will receive a full refund (minus Ryzer card processing/convenience fees). That refund will appear on your credit or debit card within 72 hours of camp cancellation. Those few special arrangements that were made for payment via check or cash will take longer due to GVSU campus processing.
