HOUSING AND FACILITIES
Camps will be held on the grounds of world renowned Villanova University Campus, based in the prestigious Radnor Township which boasts some of the most scenic views in the nation including the home of the Villanova Women’s Soccer team the state-of-the-art Higgins Soccer Complex. With one of the best playing surfaces in the country, we have a tremendous grounds staff that works year round to ensure the field is in top condition. Our camps also use a number of other fields around the beautiful Villanova campus. All Residential campers will be housed in residence halls on campus.
All dorms are air-conditioned and players will be housed in double occupancy rooms.
We will do our best to meet any rooming requests, but we cannot guarantee all requests will be met.
Campers will not switch rooms with other campers. No camper will be allowed to move rooms once camp starts. Any camper found to switch rooms will be removed from the camp and sent home – refund will NOT be issued. This is a safety issue and all campers must stay in the room they are assigned. If a camper has any questions or concerns about the room they are placed in this must be communicated to our camp director or night supervisor who will be onsite. This is a zero tolerance policy.
MEALS ON CAMPUS
Players will eat three meals a day on campus with plenty of healthy options at each meal, including fresh fruits and vegetables. Players will also receive snacks throughout the day and in the evening before bed.

Villanova University is proud to hold goalkeeper specific training within it’s camps and clinics. As a staff, we understand the importance and difficulty of the position and therefore aim to elevate and promote it. Our sessions are run by goalkeeper specific coaches that train on a collegiate and national level, this allows us to offer instruction in both goalkeeper specific training as well as game scenarios happening within the camp setting. In adding this type of focus to our camps we hope to not only make goalkeepers better in the net but better as a complete player as they will receive a full scope of training. Goalkeepers are an integral part of our training environment and will be treated as so in our camps and clinics.
