Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you have a child flying to camp, private arrangements for campers arriving at the Hartford Bradley Airport may be made by visiting:
http://www.bradleyairport.com/Transportation.aspx. If campers are flying into LaGuardia Airport, please visit their website: http://www.panynj.gov/airports/laguardia.html. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. The State of Connecticut requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.  

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

*Please note, this information is subject to change.

    Absolute Best Time

    The Nike Camp at Sacred Heart University was extraordinary. My son is an advanced level soccer player and said he had the 'absolute best time' ever. His statement reflected the soccer instruction, soccer coaches, soccer atmosphere and the entire camp experience in general. He has participated in other 'soccer boarding camps' so he has a lot to compare. He 'loved' attending the Nike Camp and will participate again next summer.

    Extremely well run

    I highly recommend this soccer camp to anyone looking for a total soccer experience. The camping staff is excellent and runs everything extremely well.

    • 5/5.

    My son was only able to be at camp for 2 days due to an unknown severe allergic reaction but they took care of him above and beyond. Emily the trainer was fantastic with communicating with me and took great care of my son as well as the counselor that went to the hospital. Nike even gave me a credit for the time my son missed for next years camp. My son loved the short amount of time he was able to participate and can't wait to go back next year

    Enjoyable week

    My son spent an enjoyable week improving his skills and spending  time just keeping up with soccer during the summer break so he could return to school in the Fall ready for his high school team.

    Intense and fun week

    Provides an intense week of soccer to satisfy the athlete who wants to step up his game, all while providing a fun atmosphere in which to do it in.

    Great Experience

    My son had a great experience - he was very hesitant to go and had the time of his life - also was very happy with the drills.

    — Mark C., Parent 2013

    Excellent Coaching

    The camp has an excellent coaching staff and a great field to play and practice on. Had a great time and learned a lot.

    — Adrian M., Camper 2013

    Needs healthier meals

    Too much scrimmaging without instruction. Not enough drills on footwork and passing. Not enough discipline. Trainers are too young some or most were in high school. Nutrition was horrible. A lot of fried food not too many healthy choices. A sports camp should consider teaching in promoting proper nutrition not serving hamburgers pizza and chicken fingers.

    Commitment to Team Work

    This Nike camp built a very strong commitment to team work and good sportsmanship while maintaining a serious and competitive environment.

    Rep should be at meeting area

    sometimes upon arrival, there was no Nike rep at the meeting area. I'd like a rep there at drop off.

    Great Program

    The boys are given a sense of freedom, while still being supervised. Nike Soccer Camps run a great program.

    Left feeling motivated

    Our son has been to several camps and left this camp feeling motivated and strong. The coaches did a great job working with the kids and helping get them conditioned and trained.  The head coach was involved and gave personal attention to the boys.  It was a great week.

    Individualized instruction

    The fitness sessions are very well instructed with all the various stations working on all the aspects of soccer. The coaches challenged the campers, but are also very friendly. They overall attention paid to the campers was excellent, lots of individualized instruction.
