This page contains pertinent information that you will need to know about our camps. Below are frequently asked questions that we recommend you to review prior to registering for a camp.
NACTM welcomes ALL playing levels between the ages of 5-18.
The NACTM Soccer Camps are located in 12 North American cities throughout the United States and Canada, and 6 Caribbean cities. We work with local clubs to implement its method and style of play.
We recommend cleats that are already broken in. Don’t buy a new pair of cleats to wear at camp! New shoes or old socks can give you blisters! Protecting your feet’s back heel and wearing two pair of socks can help you avoid getting blisters. In addition we recommend to have shinguards in sleeves, so the shinguard can’t cause rashes. We advise campers to be well rested before camp. Players also need a good breakfast to be well prepared
No, whenever you have any questions, you should contact the Director of Camps who will then relay the message to the Technical Director to speak with the coach. We ask that you please do not speak directly to the coaches.
The staff consists of a director, technical directors, regional coordinators (one per player age range), the coaches and assistants.
Teams are organized by ages (5-7 year olds, 8-10 year olds, 11-13 year olds, 14-15 year olds, 16-18 year olds). NACTM’s plan is to improve technical, tactical, psychosocial, and physical abilities to enhance team performance. During the camp, we try to make the teams as competitive as possible. Every team will have its own head coach.
Each camper must wear shin guards (compulsory) and cleats. The camp registration includes a training kit (jersey, shorts, and socks) and in some cases a ball for day campers only. Water and refreshments will be supplied. All gear must be properly labelled with the player’s name to avoid any losses. Campers can order additional gear on our online shop at the point of registration. To shop the items in the store click here.
We offer two options. The first option is during your spring and fall seasons. We offer a 10-12 week soccer school to complement your club. At the school we help you to improve on the various aspects of your game based on your coach's evaluation. The second option is a summer camp. The half-day and day camps are open to 5-12 year olds, and the evening camp is for 13-18 year olds. Each camp has its different focuses. The 5-12 year old half and day camps focus on technical skill development. The 13-18 year old evening camp, emphasizes position specific exercises to help players master their positions.
Yes. The NATCM program is solely a methodology to help your child to develop and learn from different styles of play. Your child’s club is the platform for them to be able to exhibit what they have learned from the program.
