Resident and Commuter Options

Participants have the option of attending as residents (full live-in campers) or commuters (day only campers). Resident campers reside in dorm rooms on the Grounds of the University of Virginia and are under the supervision of Virginia Soccer Camp of Champions staff.

Camp Supervision

The Virginia Soccer Camp of Champions has a very experienced staff. Many of our coaches have worked the camp for multiple years. Each year, we conduct background checks on all coaches and staff member. The coach/camper ratio is approximately 1 coach to every 12 campers. Attendance is taken prior to each session and during daily suite meetings. The daily suite meetings provide an opportunity for our coaches and staff to closely monitor and interact with campers.

Both staff coaches and counselors reside in the dormitories with campers. Campers are closely monitored and obligated to attend all sessions and meals.
