Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
I'm SO Grateful!
After attending this camp, I can truly say that I have learned a lot of new things. Being able to work with the Sacred Heart keeper helped me learn a lot of new skills. Not only did this camp help me get back into soccer season, but it also gave me an idea of what college sports would be like. It was a great environment to be in and all the coaches were great! I'm so grateful for all the help everyone gave in order to make this possible for me!

Pushed to the next level
I absolutely loved this camp! I made so many new friends and got so much better. Playing with other girls that were better than me pushed me to move up to their level of play. I would definitely recommend this camp.

Loved every minute!
If your child is interested in soccer /goalkeeper training this is a great camp I liked the coed and the challenge was great for my 13 year old daughter. The older campers took her under their wing and helped her with her training. She loved every minute of the camp but said it was too short!

Met new friends and improved my game
Nike soccer camp is awesome! I met new friends and improved my shooting skills in less than a week. After 3 sessions a day, we got to relax in our dorms or play table tennis with friends. The food is great here too.
— Wendy L., Sacred Heart University Camper '09
Showed her how to connect with college coaches
This was my daughter's first year at the camp and really enjoyed it. The coaches pushed her and she felt challenged. She said that it was hard but it was totally worth it and she can't wait to return next year. I also loved that they gave her recommendations on how to connect with college coaches if she wanted to pursue soccer in college.
— Clarissa R., Parent of Sacred Heart University Camper '09
Very happy overall
My daughter signed up for day camp and by the middle of the first day called and asked if she could do the overnight, I called the Coach and 20 minutes later I was bringing my daughter her necessities for the week. She had a lot of fun, learned a lot and made some new friends. She was very happy with the overall program, coaches and campers.

Learned a lot
I noticed a big improvement with my daughter's skill when I watched her the last day at camp. She felt she learned so much and had a great time at camp.
— Nike Girls Soccer Sacred Heart 2016: John W. (Parent)
The amount of time in dorm rooms. I found that I was stuck in my room without wifi and really bored. Also, they should make more accessible wifi in Merton Hall

Better player evaluation
More individual attention and identification of where the camper did improve and where they need to improve.
