Crusader Soccer Academy for Girls is committed to providing a safe, challenging, fun space to grow as a leader and soccer player. Our camps focus on getting lots of touches (comfort on the ball), attacking and defending in 1’s, 2’s and 3’s, and dynamic team efficient tactics (read-act, repeat). We believe the lessons we learn on the soccer field apply to off the field success, too, and vice-versa. We are faith-based coaches and a faith-based soccer camp committed to developing young athletes to become the best versions of themselves.
Our camps are normally held on the campus of Belmont Abbey College. Unless otherwise specified, campers will play on the training areas located south of the Mike Reidy Tennis Center and Wheeler Athletic Center.
We will have staff at the field 15 minutes prior to start time and 15 minutes after camp end time for your convenience. Please be respectful of these times. Please be clear with your child if someone else will be picking them up. Please send a note with your child for the coach to have when getting picked up by someone other than the parent. If you are running late, please text Coach Lynch's cell phone letting him know (402-639-8932).
There is a $30.00 non-refundable processing fee for all cancellations before the first 30 days of the camp start date. If cancelling within 30 days of the camp start date, you will be issued a partial credit to your account for a future camp. Cancellation and refund request must be made in writing (email Coach Lynch).
Due to NCAA regulations, we unfortunately are unable to provide financial assistance or scholarships to camp. We do offer discounts for the following groups:
Teams: We offer a $15.00 discount to all campers registering as part of team of 10 players or more. For the overnight residential camps, teams may room and play small and large-sided matches together if requested. If you would like to register as a team, please contact Coach Lynch at firstname.lastname@example.org (to receive your team’s discount code to use during the online registration process)
Belmont Abbey College Employees: Belmont Abbey employees may receive a $15.00 discount for each camper not yet in high school (per NCAA regulations). Please contact Coach Lynch, (to receive the discount code to use during online registration).
Inclement Weather/Safety Information Before Camp Starts
Weather prediction can be tricky. Our primary goal is safety. After that, our goal is to continue each session as originally scheduled. If that is not feasible, then we will look at the feasibility of a delayed start. Unless you hear from me via camp facebook/email/text (to the one given to me on your registration form) prior to start time, a decision will be made at the field. Refunds are not normally offered for uncontrollable weather conditions.
What to Bring
Soccer ball, soccer cleats, tennis shoes, shin guards, water bottle, sun screen, positive attitude, and a passion to learn!
