What do I need to bring? Just your kiddo, water, your waiver, and fee! (If you have not submitted these already)

What kind of equipment do they need? No equipment required! If they have cleats, cool! But not necessary. Staff will provide balls.

Can I stay and watch? Please do!

What if it rains? If weather looks exceptionally terrible and we are able to move the session, we will. Otherwise it's business as usual

We have a scheduling conflict. Can I get a refund? You may switch to a different session, but no refunds will be given

What if my kid hates it after the first day and doesn't want to return? The staff highly encourages campers to return, as each session will be different. We are confident that your child will be able to get something out of simply being there.
