Residential & Commuter FAQ

Q: What type of Supervision is there in the dorms and to/from the fields?
A:
Each floor in the dorm will have a floor supervisor in addition to members of the senior staff staying in the dorms during the camp. Campers are supervised walking to and from the beach area and to and from the field. The campers will walk to dinner with a coach. The dining hall is usually located adjacent to the dorm in which we are residing.

Q: Who are the coaches? Are there background checks completed on the staff?
A:
The coaches on staff will be a combination of Northwestern University coaches, current and former Northwestern soccer players, current college players from other universities and local coaches with an educational background. Since you child's safety is of the utmost importance. Northwestern is one of the few camps that require a full background check of all staff members and all coaches and counselors must pass DCFS certification.

Q: What meals are included?
A:
All residential campers will receive breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Northwestern dining halls while commuters will receive lunch and dinner. The first meal served will be dinner on July 20th & the last meal will be breakfast on July 23rd.

Q: How about gluten free or meals for campers with peanut allergies?
A: We are happy to say that both gluten free and meals for those with peanut allergies are available by request.  Our chef and food services will make special meals for those with food sensitivities.   Please contact us well in advance so we can make arrangements with the chef.  More information can be found at diet-food@northwestern.edu

Q: With the summer heat, what kind of hydration is available to campers?
A:
We are fortunate to be sponsored by Gatorade.  Every training session will have full access to Gatorade stations located in close proximity to the fields. In addition, campers can bring their own water jugs to fill at our water stations. On those days where it is very hot we will take extra breaks.  In addition, with the cool waters of Lake Michigan at our disposal, a quick dip in our lifeguard protected lake (optional) in the afternoon helps the body to cool down before the evening World Cup matches.  In addition for games at Martin and Hutchinson Field, a misting sprinkler system is available while on Long Field plenty of shade exists during the breaks.

Q: Do Commuters get the same training as Residential Campers?
A:
The training for commuters and residential campers is the same. Residentials will have the option to also partake in our nightly "Futsal Night Lights" where we play Futsal under the lights on our Northwestern University Soccer Stadium.

Q: How do roommate request work?
A:
We will match roommates based on who you request in the registration form. Our rooms are doubles so if three people request each other we will do our best to put them in the rooms next to each other.

Q: What if I don't have a roommate request?
A:
We have other single campers and you will be matched up with someone within one year of your age.

Q: What is a typical day like?
A:
The morning will focus on ball skill, making things fun and challenging while the boys still have lots of energy. The afternoon is spent teaching the tactical part of the game, mixing those concepts into short sided play. After an optional cooling off at the beach and a good dinner, it is time for the league matches where all the day's work are put into competitive games. For those campers staying overnight, we offer a "Futsal Madness" or a movie back at the Residence Hall.

Q: Can parents observe the games?
A:
We encourage parents to attend the league games and the final day for the league championships. There is no greater part of camps than the league matches, and having a large crowd makes the experience even more incredible. However, after Check-In, if a parent needs to enter the dorm, please inform the camp staff so we do not have adults wandering around the dormitories.  NO PARENTS/ADULTS ALLOWED BEYOND LOBBY AFTER CHECK-IN.

Q: Is there Goalkeeper training available?
A:
Goalkeeping instruction is done by Ovidio Felcaro one of the best goalkeeper trainers in the country and former professional player from Argentina. We will incorporate the GK training while the field players are doing their skill training. Goalkeepers will then join their teams for match play.
