Players should bring plenty water, gatorade, and snacks. Players also need to bring warm weather gear, sunscreen, shin guards, cleats, soccer ball, and goalkeeper gloves.
Goalkeeper training and camps are intense. Unlike field player camps, goalkeeper camps are filled with a lot of diving, sometimes contact to contact, and various physically enduring drills. Goalkeepers need more rest and recovery for their bodies after intense training like this. Our camps are fun, filled with great drills, and teaching lessons made for the beginner goalkeeper on up to high school elites. We have found that 3-days is the best fit for goalkeeper's recovery and injury prevention for the long-term.
Cancellations MUST be received by email 15 days prior to the start date of the clinic in order to get a partial refund. Cancellations have to be emailed to email@example.com. RGA will only refund 50% percent of the registration fees due to additional fees incurred during refund of payment.
Please note: camp payments are non-refundable and non-transferrable 14 days prior to camp.
No Show- if you're registered for a camp and do not attend for any reason and/or do not notify us that you will not be attending at least 15 days prior to the start of the session, refunds will NOT be issued.
Refunds for Illness, Quarantine, or Injury:
If your child is ill, tests positive for COVID-19 or has an injury 7-days prior to the camp a signed doctor's notehas to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will make an attempt to work with all players. If a signed doctor's is received 7-days prior to the event and states that the player cannot attend camp, we will offer one of two options: a partial refund of 50% of the camp registration fee that was paid OR transfer the balance to their training account for future group training ONLY. If the balance is transferred, it must be used within 6 months unless their injury prevents return to play during that time frame. If the player's return to play recovery time is longer than 6 month we will adjust the expiration date accordingly.
Ill or Injured during camp:
If your child is ill or is injured and misses camp NO refunds OR credits will be issued.
In the event of severe inclement weather such as lightning and/or thunder, we will cease camp operations and contact parents to pick up their children immediately. If inclement weather causes us to cancel an entire day of training, we will use Thursday as a make-up day.
All campers are required to bring their own lunch. Lunch will not be provided. We recommend bringing Gatorade and plenty of water as neither will be provided unless they run out and it's an emergency. We recommend bringing sunblock and applied during sessions. Coaches will not be allowed to help.
We will be implementing strict COVID-19 precautions. Hand sanitizing stations will be set-up at each field. If players come in contact with or test positive for COVID or a family member within the same household does, we require all players to quarantine and come to training for 14-days. Credits will be considered as long as we have received written communication and proof of a positive COVID-19 test from the client. This can be emailed to email@example.com.
