What is the difference between The Edge Residential Camp and The ID Camp? The Edge Residential Soccer Camp is a 4-day overnight soccer camp for boys & girls (ages 10 -16) that focuses on skill development and tactical improvement. All skill levels are welcome and team registration is encouraged! The ID soccer camp is geared towards soccer players looking to play at the Collegiate level, training with College Coaches from various Divisions & Schools. This camp is available for boys & girls (ages 15-18)
What is the cost of camp? The Edge Residential Camp is $500 per player, which is all inclusive of training, meals and lodging. There is multiple early registration discounts: Register one player and get another player’s registration half off (or 20% off a single registration) until Dec 31, 2017. 15% Team discount (must be 8 or more players) if registered before March 31, 2017 and 10% off a single registration if done before March 31st.
The ID Camp is $375 per player, which is all inclusive of training, meals and lodging. There are two early registration discounts: $50 off a single registration if done before December 31, 2017 and $25 off if registered before March 31, 2018.
Full payment is due upon registration. Please use our Contact page if you would like to talk about payment plan options.
Are there Medical Professionals on site? Certified Athletic Trainer(s) will be on staff for the entire camp. They will be at check-in to go over any medical concerns you might have for during the week for your child. During the week they will be available to treat your athlete one hour before each session. At each training session they will be at the pitches observing and ready to respond to any and all situations. As our certified Athletic Trainer will be residing in the same dorm as our players they are effectively “on-call” all the time and can be at hand to help out.
Where do the campers stay? Players reside in the dorms on the campus of UW at River Falls. All coaches, chaperones and trainers stay in the dorms along with the players. Chaperones supervise the floors, wake players up for breakfast, ensure lights are out at the appropriate time and other supervisory activities. The dorms are close to the cafeteria, fields and other camp destinations. Campers are not allowed to leave the campus grounds. If your camper has a roommate request, make sure to note that during registration. We cannot ensure every request will be met, but we will attempt to do our best.
What about meals? Players will eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the cafeteria on campus. This is included in your registration fee. Meals are served buffet style and players are welcomed to bring their own snacks, but it is not a necessity. Pizza is sold after the final sessions for those players needing a late night snack, which is an additional fee – if you choose to send your player with spending money, $40 is usually plenty.
