If my child has never played soccer will he/she fit in at camp?

Absolutely. Many of the campers are beginners once they enter this camp. This camp is designed for all skill levels. In fact, we encourage your child to bring a friend that has not yet been introduced to this exciting sport to help spread the passion for soccer in schools around Syracuse.

If my child is a very advanced player can he/she play up an age group?

If your son or daughter is excelling in his/her camp group, the staff coach and camp director will make a decision whether or not your son or daughter would benefit by moving to an older age group.

During inclement weather we will be inside the Manley Field House which is field turf and located near the SU Soccer Stadium.
