In addition we bring in additional coaches with club/academy/ODP experience. For our Elite College Prospect Camp additional NCAA Collegiate Coaches are brought in. Members of the Stony Brook University Soccer Team will also be present to act as counselors and to further enhance each camper’s experience

 Are any additional forms required to attend Camp?

All campers must complete a Medical History Form and Assumption of Risk Form available at the forms section. Completed forms must be brought to registration and must be received prior to the start of camp. Any camper with incomplete forms will not be able to participate in camp activities.

 Is there medical personnel at the camps?

There will be an athletic trainer/EMT present at every session. Water will be available during all the training sessions at the fields.

 What happens if there is bad weather?

If it rains, is overcast, humid, hot... we expect to continue having our training sessions. We always train. As soccer is played in all weather, we train in all weather.

However, if the weather becomes dangerous (lightning, high winds, floods, extreme heat, etc.) we will move the campers to the athletic building or Indoor Training Facility (schedule permitting). We will get back outside as soon as the weather permits and, in the case of lightning, as soon as we are notified that it is safe to do so.

 How do I Register?

You can register online for any of the Ryan Anatol Soccer Academies  at  http://www.ryananatolsoccer.com/  After you have registered for any of our camps, you will receive a confirmation email with additional details. Please allow a few days after receipt of your application for a confirmation.

 Are there any Discounts?

We offer Early Bird Discounts on all our camps for registrations received before the advertised early bird date for that session.

 Are there any Refunds?

Due to contracts with our service providers and travel arrangements that need to be made in advance with our Coaching Staff, partial refunds can only be given, if requested in writing and received by our camp office 7 days prior to the camp start date. A written refund request must be sent via email to our camp administrator’s email address at ranatol@ryananatolsoccer.com outlining the camper’s name, camp session, and request for refund, with a stated reason for cancellation and address to send refund.

Each camp has a non-refundable $50 fee that cannot be refunded for any reason.

 

COVID-19
The health and safety of campers is our primary focus. Our summer 2020 camps are currently scheduled to proceed as planned. Like you, we are continually monitoring COVID-19 developments. If it is determined that our camps should be canceled, we will issue campers a full refund within 48 hours of cancelation (minus Ryzer card processing/convenience fees).

As an added safeguard our event offers Allianz Registration Protection insurance. For an additional fee, this insurance refunds your full registration fee if camp is held but you cannot attend or must leave early due to a covered injury or illness which includes COVID-19. Details can be found here.

 

 Are Parents Allowed to Watch?

Definitely. You are welcome to attend any of the training sessions and games. However, we ask that you stay outside of the training fields while sessions are occurring. If you are staying to watch any of the sessions please observe all parking rules. For our Elite College ID Prospect Camp we will have a lecture on NCAA Rules, Eligibility and Recruitment. Parents are encouraged to attend.
