WHO CAN ATTEND?
FIRSTTOUCH COLLEGE PREP COMBINES are open to players who are uncommitted Juniors and Seniors (for boys and girls). We offer separate events for girls and boys. Due to NCAA rules, 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.
Our coaches conduct a technical warm up that focuses on skill instruction in the morning portion and afternoon portion. All of our coaches are constantly giving feedback to players during small sided drills and full field scrimmages to help players improve their overall skills and general knowledge. We diversify our camp with speed and agility education, technical warm up, small sided drills, and full field games.
WHO WILL BE COACHING US AT CAMP?
Our college soccer coaches are there to evaluate, identify, and give feedback to players. They will provide skill instruction through technical warm ups. Our staff of college strength and conditioning coaches are on site to give a taste of college level speed and agility testing and education.
IS THERE SPECIFIC GOALKEEPER TRAINING?
We will have goalkeeper specific college coaches at each camp. Goalkeepers will receive a proper warm up prior to full field and small sided games. Each goalkeeper will be evaluated by a goalkeeper coach.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO CAMP?
Players must bring lunch, indoor AND outdoor soccer boots, shin guards, practice gear for rain & shine, soccer ball, sun block, and a water bottle.
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
Due to the significant expenses which FIRSTTOUCH COLLEGE ID COMBINES must commit to well in advance of each of our camps (field , college coaches, counselors & staff, flights, hotels, meals, etc), refunds will be given only if requested a minimum of 15 days before the start of camp.
A written request must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the campers name, camp dates and explanation of the reason for cancellation.
If you are requesting a refund less than 15 days out from camp, a 50% credit will be issued toward a future camp. Any cancellation notice given less than 5 days out from camp results in a total loss of funds.
Injury or Illness: In the event a player cannot attend due to injury or illness, the written refund request must include a doctor’s release that states the camper would not have been able to participate due to illness or injury. If notice is given less than 15 days out from camp, the camper will receive a 100% credit to a future camp. Any cancellation notice given less than 48 hours out from camp results in a total loss of funds. *All cancellations and refunds must be requested prior to camp starting. No shows will result in a complete loss of funds.

Parents are not to stay and watch, but are welcome to be closeby for the duration of the camp.
WHAT IS YOUR INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY?
In any inclement weather situations, we will do our best to arrange the camp and adjust times in order for the camp to go on. In the event that the camp must be cancelled do to weather PRIOR to the camp beginning for the day, a 50% credit toward a future camp will be issued to each camper.
