PLEASE NOTE: All of our required health, consent, and liability forms are part of our online registration process. If you've registered and paid for camp, then we have all the medical information we need from you. You may bring any supplemental information for our athletic trainer if you deem that necessary or if you need to update any information. Thanks!
In order to provide the most up-to-date information and to streamline the registration process, please note that once you have completed the online registration process and you have received the resulting confirmation of payment email from the Elite Soccer Academy for Girls at Virginia Tech, you won't receive further general correspondence from us until the week prior to the beginning of camp. All of the most updated information, including sections on what to bring to camp, as well as timelines and sample schedules, can all be found on this website. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out and contact us.
The only way that we can ensure that roommate requests will be verified is if both roommates request each other during registration. There are only two campers per room. If you are coming with a team, a designated team coach or manager will supply the rooming list.
All campers staying on campus must have a $50 key deposit at check-in (checks payable to ESA) in order to get their dorm keys. The check will be returned at check-out when the key is returned. This is required because the VT Housing Dept. charges a $50 fee for lost keys. Payment for the deposit is cash or check only.
Certified athletic trainers (ATCs) will provide medical supervision 24 hours a day. If there is specific medical attention that your daughter needs, please have documentation with you to hand to our trainers. Please feel free to call prior to camp to discuss any unique situations.
All campers need a ball at camp. If you would like to purchase a hand-stitched Virginia Tech logo ball for $20 you need to do so when registering. If registering online, you will be asked if you’d like a ball. You may also purchase a ball at our merchandise store on-site during camp. We offer size 5 balls only.
Photos will be taken and sold for $10. Please purchase during your online registration.
Extra t-shirts, with a different design than the camp t-shirt, will be available for purchase. To pre-purchase, please check the box on the registration form online. Additional Hokie soccer shirts will be available through our on-site merchandise store as well.
Day Campers receive a t-shirt, certificate of completion, and a pizza party on the final day. Elite Campers will receive a t-shirt, lodging and meals, a written evaluation and training for 3 days. Elite campers also get to experience seminars throughout the week. Elite commuters receive the same as the Elite residential campers except they do not receive breakfast each day or stay in the dorms.
Extra security measures are in place to provide a safe living/camp environment while staying on the campus of Virginia Tech. Dorms are locked throughout the entire day and cannot be accessed except with a key card. Key cards are issued to each camper and staff member. Each dorm room has a phone, which provides free local calls and room to room calls and can connect with the local 911 system in an emergency. Finally, the dorm staff rooms are clearly marked for camper needs at all hours. If you have further questions, please contact our office.
Elite campers will receive a written evaluation from their academy coach at the end of the week.
ESA is not responsible for camper’s personal items that are lost or stolen. It is highly recommended that each camper lock their room when they leave. It is also the responsibility of the camper to keep track of their soccer ball as they cannot be replaced by the ESA.
Campers that drive themselves to camp must turn their keys into the director during registration. Keys will be returned at check-out. We will provide parking permits for campers who have cars.
The Elite Soccer Academy is open to any and all entrants (limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender). This sports camp is owned, controlled and operated by Charles "Chugger" Adair, the Head Women's Soccer Coach at Virginia Tech. The word "Hokie(s)", or any other reference to Virginia Tech are by permission of the University, and do not indicate, express, or imply in any fashion involvement of the University in the operation or control of the camp, whose sole operator is Charles Adair.
