Camps

The German Soccer Academy offers summer, winter and spring week long soccer camps for children of all ages and abilities. The camps offer an extensive and intense opportunity for children to learn and improve their soccer skills through fun, dynamic and challenging exercises and games. Your children will also learn more about team play and improve their interpersonal skills in a positive, social environment. Furthermore, the camps have a speed and agility ladder component for exercises which will improve body coordination and benefit children in any sport they play.

The cost is $90 for 4 day camps, morning camps, siblings $80 each if you reserve your space before June 15th, 3-day options for $75. Parents may drop off their child at 8:50 and have until 12:30 to pick up their child.

The week of July 17th-21st (Mon-Fri) we will have a soccer/sports/German Arts and Crafts camp. $110 for anyone just coming from 9 am to 1 pm or $110 for anyone wanting to come 12 noon to 4 pm and $200 for the whole day, 9 am to 4 pm. Lots of German spoken during the Crafts part of the camp as an added bonus. Also although not yet confirmed, lunch may be free, supplied by the city at the Golden Hill Rec Center.

Soccer camps are subject to cancellation if not enough participants are signed up.

Finally, review the important information and rain policy for the German Soccer Academy below.

Important Information

  1. CHECK-IN
    Children should always let the coach or coaches know when they arrive. If your child cannot attend a day, please inform us in advance if possible.
  2. EQUIPMENT
    All children must wear shin guards!
    Cleats are not necessary but recommended for the camp.
  3. HYDRATION
    Children should all have plenty of drinking liquids, even if there is a drinking fountain, which leads to waiting in long lines. Don’t forget sunscreen on sunny days!
  4. RAIN POLICY
    We will plan to have a session in cases of mild rain. The parents can decide, of course, to pick up their children if they think it is too wet but the GSA will have a session anyway. In the case of heavy rain, please call (619) 660-1713 one hour before the camp starts to find out the status of the camp for that day.
  5. PICK UP
    Please remind your children to stay with the GSA coach until an authorized adult comes to pick them up, whereas they must tell a coach before being excused. Craig Hyde reserves the right to charge $1 per minute for every minute after 10 minutes past the scheduled end of camp.
  6. BEHAVIOR
    Please remind your children to be on their best behavior as well and that all school rules apply on the soccer field. The children must, above all, show respect for each other, the coaches and the property of the German Soccer Academy. Children must follow coaches instructions at all times to insure their own safety and the safety, well-being and happiness of the other children. We reserve the right to not allow a child to participate for any noncompliance of rules or antisocial behavior.
  7. REFUND POLICY
    Craig Hyde has the authority to not grant any refund for any money paid for coaching services, especially in the case where a child has been continuously disruptive, not followed instructions, refused to participate or not shown respect to other coaches or participants. If Craig Hyde determines that a refund request is a valid and reasonable request, he may decide to refund some money, pro-rated for number of sessions child has already participated in, minus a 10% fee.
