Is there specific Goalkeeping training?

Yes. Our goalkeeper’s participants will train with our goalkeeper coaches in specific cutting-edge GK training sessions. All goalkeepers will also be integrated with the field players for match games and small-sided competitions. GK trainers/coaches will work with all goalkeepers during these games on proper warm-ups and game evaluations.

Do boys and girls train together? 

All players are put into groups based on session, age, and gender when they first arrive at camp. For the younger players(8-13), the boys train with boys and the girls with girls. For some high school age(14-19) sessions, we have some limited co-ed tactical training sessions. 

What is the advantage of Steamboat Soccer Academy vs. a Collegiate Camp?

Steamboat Soccer Academy will offer the best learning environment possible in an awesome mountain location with the best staff available. Collegiate camps will be taught by the Coaches from the University and that university's players. This may mean only one style of play is being taught. The learning experience will not be as dynamic and diverse as it is at Steamboat Soccer Academy. If you want to be noticed by that particular Coach then going to their camp will give you direct exposure to him/her, their playing and coaching methods and the opportunity to experience the campus life at that particular institution.

How long has Steamboat Soccer Academy been conducting camps?

The Summer of 2018 will mark the 24th year of running camps in Colorado.

What is the best way to get to Steamboat Springs if I am traveling from out of state?

Steamboat is a world-class resort destination. If you are not within a relatively easy car drive and would prefer to travel by air we recommend that you contact our partners at Steamboat Reservations and Travel to assist your needs. Please call them Toll Free at 1-800-752-8911 or Email address: info@steamboattravel.com. We have had participants attend our camp from 18 states and 5 different countries and Steamboat Reservations and travel have helped them every step of the way.

I found out all my friends are in another session. Can I change the session that I am attending to join them?

Changes are allowed if the room is available the session you are changing to. There is a $25 administration fee to move campers from one session to another. If you purchased Cancelation insurance, this $25 fee is waived. If you upgrade to more sessions or to a more costly session (Performance to Premier) no extra fees will be charged.

I am a Session only or Day camper; Can I attend more than one camp?

Absolutely, just register for each Performance Session you would like to attend. Space is very limited in our Bridge Sessions, but you will be able to spend that time with your family recovering from a hard week's work.

Do you have any Specials if I bring my team to train? 

Yes! We do offer a deal for teams who sign up together. Find out more: Team Discount Program

Do you have trainers or medical staff at your camp if I get injured?

Yes. We have a dedicated trainer available each day and will work with all of the campers if they are needed.
