FAQ Sheet – TESA Camps 2018

Quick Check List of things to bring & Facts:

  • Day Camps are for Boys and Girls ages 5-13 years old.
  • All campers need to bring a Soccer ball (size 3 for kids 5-7), (size 4 for kids 8-11), (size 5 for kids 12-13 years old).
  • Shin guards must be on campers at all times during field portions of the camp.
  • Swimming trunks, towel, change of clothes. Swim time is not mandatory, campers choosing not to swim will do video/movie in the team room located under the stadium. University of Tampa Lifeguards test all campers prior to them being permitted to swim on the first day of camp. If they do not feel it is safe for a camper to swim, the camper will not be permitted to participate in swimming.
  • Tennis shoes or flats – cannot have black bottoms as they leave black marks on the gym floor (indoor soccer).
  • Any medical issues/allergies need to be disclosed at the start of camp with the camp director and athletic trainer that is on site for all camp hours.
  • Food Allergies need to be disclosed with the camp and we recommend any camper with serious food allergies such as nuts or dairy, look to bring their own lunch each day. Our athletic trainers working the camp will hold any medical products needed in case of emergency.
  • Head Staff to camper ratio is 1-12/15 campers. There is also an assistant staff coach that will assist each head staff coach.
  • All coaches and staff are Level 2 background checked and finger printed – this is University of Tampa and State Law in Florida.
  • Water/cups are provided at all sessions, campers can bring a water bottle if they want.
  • There is a camp store with snacks for purchase. Having some money to spend in the camp store is recommended. We recommend loading this in the camp store bank each morning so no camper has money hanging around.
  • Parents can watch any session at the camp. Time to come watch World Cup Finals on Friday’s is around 10:15am if you want to watch your child play in the championship rounds.
  • Early Drop off and late pick up options are available for a $50 per week fee. Contact mo.tesacamps@gmail.com for details. Earliest drop off is 8AM, latest pickup without being charged is 4:30pm. Latest time available for Late Pick up is 5:30PM.
  • If your son/daughter will be picked up by another person or have to leave earlier than the camp ends, the camp directors need to know at the start of camp. Campers will check out each day with their coach prior to leaving.
  • Campers are grouped by age and ability. Campers will be evaluated first, then moved to appropriate level as long as it is not a safety issue. Campers moving up in age group must be able to hold their weight playing with older campers. We will not move campers down that present a safety issue for campers. Player movement at camp is determined by the staff coaches and camp directors after the evaluation period on day 1.
  • Campers must check-in and check-out daily at the pick off and drop off locations set forth by the camp. They are not permitted to leave the camp area for any reason unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
