 Does the Sounders FC provide lunch for full day campers?

No.  We require that all full day campers bring their own lunch.  Lunchtime will be from 12:00pm -1:00pm.  We also ask that campers do not share lunches do to various food allergies that campers may have, so please remember to pack a lunch.

 What do campers receive?

Adidas soccer ball, Sounders FC adidas camp t-shirt, invite to a special Sounders FC Camper Appreciation Day event, Group Health giveaway items, trivia prizes, signed merchandise awards to the camper of the week, opportunity to meet players, and discounted price to join the Junior Alliance.

 Why can't I register online for next week's camp?

Our online registration tool stops accepting registrations Friday at 6am, before the week of camp. This allows us enough time to print and distribute all registration lists to our camp site directors. Signing up prior to camp begins is prefferred so we know how many kids to expect and the appropiate amount of coaches to send to each location.  After this point, we will only be accepting walk up registrations the morning of camp. (Walk ups may pay by check, cash, or credit card) You may still do a walk up registration the first day of camp unless the camp is listed on our website as “Closed/At Capacity".

 Will there by Sounders FC player appearances at camp?

Yes, but it is not guaranteed. Our goal is to have a player appearance at all of our camps, but that is not always realistic with player travel schedules and other commitments. All campers will have the opportunity to meet the team and get autographs at our annual Camp Appreciation Day, TBA.

 What is Camp Appreciation Day?

Camper Appreciation Day is a unique opportunity, only available for Sounders FC campers, as a way to say thank you for attending our camps. Campers will be given the chance to meet some of their favorite players and receive autographs. Camper Appreciation event location and time is TBA.

 What age is old enough to do full day?

We recommend full day sessions to campers 7 years and older. This is not mandatory. If you feel that your 5 or 6 year old player can last an entire day of camp, then feel free to sign up, especially if they have an older brother or sister that is in full day as well.  However, kids that are outside of the 7 - 15 age range for full day will most likely not be surrounded by many kids their own age in the afternoon session.

 What is an early bird discount?

$20 off half day and full day Summer Camps until March 15th.

 What is your camp philosophy?

Our goal is to provide your child with quality training, that is developmentally appropriate, with a focus on technical, tactical, physical, and mental development.  We aim to create positive and energetic environments where the kids are free to express themselves and learning the game of soccer is enjoyable and fun. We seek to develop not only the technical abilities, but also promote a healthy lifestyle in our youth players. Through encouragement, motivation, and guided discovery within a positive and fun environment, your child is sure to receive a valuable camp experience.

 Is there still room for my child to sign up?

Yes. Unless the word “Closed/At Capacity” is printed next to your camp location, there are still spots available.

 Do you offer any before or post camp supervision?

We do not offer any supervision before or after camp. Players may arrive 15 – 20 minutes early for camp to prepare for the day, but we ask that all campers are picked up promptly at the scheduled end of camp each day. 

 Can my child walk or take the bus home after camp?

For safety reasons, we prefer campers be picked up by a parent or guardian after camp. Campers are allowed to walk or bus home if a parent or guardian sends the camper to camp with a pre-written note giving permission to do so. The letter/note would also detail that Sounders FC Camps are not liable in this situation.

 I am unsure where camp is located. Can you provide directions?

We have conveniently placed all of the addresses to each specific camp site on our website. You may use these addresses to obtain directions to each individual camp site.

 How do I register

Register Online at www.soundersfc.com/camps Select the camp category link you wish to sign up for and you will be redirected to our registration page.

 Do I need to bring my confirmation email?

No. The confirmation email is for your records only.

 Can my child join camp a few days late?

Yes, if you decide to sign up late, we will pro-rate the cost accordingly.

 Are there any scholarships available?

Yes, but very limited. You can submit a scholarship application on our website. Winners will be chosen at the end of May 2014. If you do not win a free scholarship to camp and are still in need, please contact Brayton Knapp.

There is also a donation area during the registration process. We never want to turn a child away, and any donations will help additional children in need attend our camps.

 What happens if I accidentially register for the wrong camp?

Please contact Brayton Knapp and we will make the correction in our system.

 What happens in the case of lightening, thunder or rain?

In the case of lightning and thunder, we will take campers to a safe area. If lightning and thunder persist, we will call contact numbers that are provided during the registration process, so your child can be picked up from camp. In the case of rain, we will continue camp as planned. Please bring appropriate clothing for this scenario i.e. jacket, long sleeve shirts, training pants etc.

 My child has a medical condition, should I tell someone?

Yes. If your child has a severe allergy and must carry any medical supplies or medication, please let the camp site director know on the first day of camp. There is an area in the online registration form where you can indicate any special needs your player may have to make us aware prior to the start of camp. However, we always ask you let the site director and coaches know in person of any medical conditions that must be taken into account.

 What group will my child be placed in?

Campers will be broken into age appropriate groups first. If we feel a camper’s skill level exceeds that of his/her peer group we will ask if they would like to join an older group. Also we tell everyone on the very first day of camp- “If you came with a friend or teammate, close in age, you are more than welcome to stay in the same group as them.” We encourage all friends and teammates to participate in the same groups during camp.

 Do you take walk up registrations?

Yes, as long as the camp is not listed as “Closed/At Capcity” on the website. You may pay in cash, credit card, or a check made out to Sounders FC Camps on the first day of the camp week you would like to attend.

 Who do I contact with questions?

You may call the customer service line at 206.512.1236, or you may email Michael Morris.
