Elite camps feature technical, tactical and positional play for advanced players seeking a greater challenge. Details at Our Camp Website Link:

Our coaching staff is selected for their ability to challenge young soccer players to improve and advance their playing skills. They also strive to provide each camper with experiences replete with hard work, as well as fun and the value of teamwork.

Our coach-to-camper ratio for ages 7-9 is 1:8 and 1:15 for older age groups. However, our team teaching concept sometimes means a 1:1 ratio. The underlying philosophy is that each child is an "individual" needing the utmost in personal attention and tutoring. This provides a meaningful learning environment for your child and allows for greater interaction between coach and player.

Resident campers can expect two challenging training sessions per day in addition to league games each afternoon. Sessions focus not only on basic skills and the development of technical and tactical play, but also stress fitness, good training habits and good sporting behavior. Day campers can expect one challenging training session per day in addition to league games in the afternoon.

For Elite campers, evaluations providing comments and perspective from each camper's coach are distributed at closing ceremonies. Each evaluation is handwritten by the coach which provides a personalized approach.

Off-field activities include everything from proper rest breaks to fun-filled afternoon and evening activities. The Bastyr campus, located on the northeast shore of Lake Washington, offers a friendly and scenic setting that provides a quiet, sylvan atmosphere for training and relaxation. Campers choose from a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, including soccer-adaptable games and other free-time options such as trail hikes, Campus Olympics, movies (mostly big time soccer games), and one of the finest arts and crafts programs--all under the watchful eyes and gracious tutelage of caring counselors.

All goalkeeping sessions are designed for beginners through elite-level play.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: The generous support of alumni and friends provides scholarships for young people who otherwise would not be able to attend camp. Our philosophy is to award a little to as many as possible (typically the maximum award is limited to $100 per camper). All scholarship applications and awards are handled very discreetly so that no one at camp will be aware that a camper is receiving scholarship assistance.

Applications are accepted between February 14 and May 15. Early application is encouraged.
