COVID-19 Update

The health and safety of campers is our primary focus. Our summer 2020 camps are currently scheduled to proceed as planned. Like you, we are continually monitoring COVID-19 developments. If it is determined that our camps should be canceled, we will issue campers a full refund within 72 hours of cancelation (minus Ryzer card processing/convenience fees).

As an added safeguard our event offers Allianz Registration Protection insurance. For an additional fee, this insurance refunds your full registration fee if camp is held but you cannot attend or must leave early due to a covered injury or illness which includes COVID-19. Details can be found here.

If you have questions, we encourage you to contact us.

Additionally, campers will have an option to use their registration for a future camp.

It is important to physically prepare in advance!

The Blue Jays soccer camp is designed for the development of players who are serious about the game. To accomplish this, the majority of the day will be spent on fields in either training or game simulations. To get the most out of the academy, it is essential that you report to camp physically fit and prepared to work hard in order to achieve your goals. Failing to heed this advice will increase the chance of injury and simply mean you will be unable to maintain the same level as your opponents.
