The only way that we can ensure that roomate requests will be verified is if both roommates request each other during registration. There are only two campers per room. If you are coming with a team, a designated team coach or manager will supply the rooming list.
All campers staying on campus must have a $50 key deposit at check-in (checks payable to ESA) in order to get their dorm keys. The check will be returned at check-out when the key is returned. This is required because the VT Housing Dept. charges a $50 fee for lost keys. Payment for the deposit is cash or check only.
Certified athletic trainers (ATCs) will provide medical supervision 24 hours a day. If there is specific medical attention that your daughter needs, please have documentation with you to hand to our trainers. Please feel free to call prior to camp to discuss any unique situations.
All campers need a ball at camp. If you would like to purchase a hand-stitched Virginia Tech logo ball for $20 you need to do so when registering. If registering online, you will be asked if you’d like a ball. You may also purchase a ball at our merchandise store on-site. We offer size 5 balls only.
Photos will be taken and sold for $10. Please purchase during your online registration.
Extra t-shirts, with a different design than the camp t-shirt, will be available for purchase. To pre-purchase, please check the box on the registration form online. Additional Hokie soccer shirts will be available through our on-site merchandise store as well.
Day Campers receive a t-shirt, certificate of completion, and a pizza party on the final day. Elite Campers will receive a t-shirt, lodging and meals, a written evaluation and training for 4 days. Elite campers also get to experience seminars throughout the week. Elite commuters receive the same as the Elite residential campers except they do not receive breakfast each day or stay in the dorms.
Extra security measures are in place to provide a safe living/camp environment while staying on the campus of Virginia Tech. Dorms are locked throughout the entire day and cannot be accessed except with a key card. Key cards are issued to each camper and staff member. Each dorm room has a phone, which provides free local calls and room to room calls and can connect with the local 911 system in an emergency. Finally, the dorm staff rooms are clearly marked for camper needs at all hours. If you have further questions, please contact our office.
Elite campers will receive a written evaluation from their academy coach at the end of the week.
ESA is not responsible for camper’s personal items that are lost or stolen. It is highly recommended that each camper lock their room when they leave. It is also the responsibility of the camper to keep track of their soccer ball as they cannot be replaced by the ESA.
Campers that drive themselves to camp must turn their keys into the director during registration. Keys will be returned at check-out. We will provide parking permits for campers who have cars.
