Registration Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What happens in case of inclement weather?

In the event of only rain, we play. We ask parents to have their child bring a rain jacket. The only time we stop playing is in the case of extremely inclement weather or thunder and /or lightning. All our locations have a safe shelter nearby. The safety and well-being of the children is our number one priority. If it is raining in the morning please travel to the site unless otherwise directed. We will make every attempt in the very rare event a camp day gets cancelled. In case the program cannot be made up, no refunds or credits are offered.

What if my child gets sick?

We will have first aid available and will call you in case your child is not able to participate. If your child is sick prior to the start of the camp, then we ask that he/she stays home not to infect any of the other campers and staff.

How can my child be well prepared for camp?

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

Are parents allowed to watch?

Parents, family, friends and coaches are all welcome to watch all training sessions. We ask visitors to be in the designated areas.

How can I get in touch with my child during camp?

Campers are allowed to have a cell phone, however, the NACTM cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen cell phones. In case  you need to get in touch with your child, please call our camp coordinator on site, he/she will always have a cell phone and can assist campers to call home.  We will provide you his/her number at sign in.


If I am not certain about my child’s development. Should I speak to the coach?

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.

Who are the staff and management of NACTM?

The staff consists of a director, technical directors, regional coordinators (one per player age range), the coaches and assistants.

Methods at NATCM

How does your online evaluation work?

Our online evaluations are free of charge. The objective of our camps isn't to nickel and dime the parent, but to help the player to improve. Prior to the start of the school or camp, we evaluate each of our student's club evaluation forms to see what their coach's recommend they improve. Based on the evaluations, we use our methodology to customize training sessions to help the player improve. How are we able to do this you ask? Because our programs are limited to only 60 players and we keep a 10:1 player to coach ratio. This enables each coach to evaluate each player in his or her group. Our report will be written by your NACTM Soccer Academy coach during the school/camp weeks. It will be submitted through The coach will rate your child technical, tactical, psychological, and physical abilities and will also explain how to improve them. In addition, the report will include several NACTM instructional videos. You will receive an email with a link to the report within 3 days after the completion of the school/camp.

How are the teams and the coaches decided?

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.

What attire does my child need and can I order additional gear?

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.

What is included in an NACTM program?

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.

Can my child participate in a NACTM program and play for their club?

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.
