Youth Camp is for players ranging from rec level to premiere level interested in competition, development, and fun. It is an individual skills based program that incorporates those basic techniques into a team/game setting.

Each youth camper will receive instruction on the essential skills of passing, receiving, dribbling, turning, etc. These skills are then developed even further in small sided games and other activities. The end of each day is set aside for "League Games" which provides an opportunity for their coaches to tie in the skills they have learned as well as teach basic attacking and defensive concepts.

The Junior Youth Camp is made up of 7-9 year-olds and/or U8/U9/U10.  The Senior Youth Camp is made up of 10-12 year-olds and/or U11/U12/U13.  If your 9 year old is playing U11 in the fall you have the choice to sign him up for the Junior Youth Camp in the morning or the Senior Youth Camp in the afternoon.  However, please be aware that there are 6th/7th Graders in the Senior Youth Camp.

COVID-19
Messiah University will implement safety protocols and strategies closer to the time of the camp, in accordance with CDC and PA DOH guidelines in order to minimize risk of spread of COVID-19. You can expect these guidelines to include recording your temperature and a symptom assessment each day, social distancing, frequent hand sanitation, etc.  Camper safety is our highest priority and Messiah University reserves the right to cancel camp if necessary in order to comply with local, state, and federal guidelines.

Goalkeeper Training: In addition to field player training we offer goalkeeper training at both the Junior Youth and Senior Youth Camps. They train together with our goalkeeper coaches during the Technical/Tactical Sessions then will be with their team for the Ladder Tournament and League Games.   If you want your son to receive goalkeeper training, you will be given the opportunity to sign up for it in the online registration process.

TESTIMONIAL FROM PARENT:

Brad,

I wanted to take a moment to commend you on a very successful week of camp. The boys from our area had a great time. But more importantly, the interest that your team shows in our kids is remarkable. At the end if the day, the kids aren't talking about goals scored, it's about the experiences shared with these young men.

I hope your players are aware of what an impact they have on our impressionable children. In a day where we struggle to find positive role models, your players and program shine.

Thanks again!
Amy, (Parent)

Each camper will be assigned a team with a coach that will be with them for the entire week.  Many of our staff members are former players of the Messiah program, now coaching on the high school and college levels, who provide a passionate soccer learning experience. A number of our current players in the Messiah's men's soccer program are chosen on the basis of their ability to teach, demonstrate, and positively motivate young soccer players. Our coach-to-player ratio is better than 1:9, and all staff must be committed to high moral and ethical standards, and are required to fill out background checks.

What to bring:
• Footwear: Molded cleats, sneakers, flip flops, and turf shoes (if desired)
• Shin Guards are required.
• Sun screen.
• Bring a water bottle that your son can carry from field to field with him.
• Bring the water bottle from home each morning.
• Snacks--Drink and Snack Food of your choice
• Do not bring a soccer ball, we will use our own.

Athletic Training:

There will be a Certified Athletic Trainer present at all times at the camp. The trainer will be available to meet with you Monday morning at Registration if you have any questions or preexisting injuries.

Inclement Weather:
Due to COVID19 restrictions regarding indoor space we are not able to hold Youth Camp if there is Thunder/Lightning.  If we inclement weather occurs we will look to be flexible and start camp late or end camp early. 

Check-In:
Check-In will be held under the tent next to the Softball Field on Monday. Check in will be required on the 1st day only.  If your son car pools to camp with another parent, he can check in himself.

Refund Policy:
Our Refund Policy is stated on our FAQ Page.

Please
check your email regularly as this is our primary way to communicate. Any additional information that we need to convey as the camp draws closer will be passed on to you via the e-mail address that you supplied when you registered for camp.

Our website vendor has now added a $3 service fee for every transaction.  If you sign up multiple campers at the same time you only pay the one $3 service fee per transaction.
