Frequently Asked Questions
Families must pay for camp via the credit card or PayPal payment process on our website.
There are no discounts for camp. We cap the number of campers in order to ensure a high-quality experience for everyone who attends. Your son is guaranteed plenty of quality playing time to showcase their skills in front of the college coaches in attendance. College coaches will be able to thoroughly assess your son’s ability to play for their program during camp. We have had college coaches offer roster spots to campers after watching them play over our five-day camp alone!
Standard Refund Policy
Payments for camp and preseason are fully refundable until June 15th. Families who cancel their registration after June 15th will not receive a refund. All cancellation requests must be sent in writing to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Covid-19 Refund Policy
We continue to organize our camps despite the threat of the Covid-19 coronavirus, and we are fully aware that the virus may affect our ability to run our camp this summer. If we cancel camp due to Pennsylvania restrictions pertaining to Covid-19, then Futbol Goals will either fully refund families who have paid for camp or apply a portion of their payment to cover the Futbol Goals’ clinics we plan on running on the same dates as our camp. We expect to have the same clinicians and colleges coaches in attendance if we are forced to run clinics. Please understand that families will be responsible for their own meals and accommodations if we need to switch to clinics. We strongly suggest that families organizing air travel to our camp purchase ticket insurance so they may receive reimbursement from the airline in case of cancellation due to covid. Pennsylvania state guidelines will be the most significant factor in determining whether we will be able to run our camp this summer. Currently, Pennsylvania has lifted their travel restrictions and camps are allowed to run at 75% capacity. We are confident that we will be able to run a great camp this August!
For the ten day preseason, it is weight training every morning, SAT prep in the afternoon, and then trainings each evening with Coach Kokoszka and Coach Jonty Loukes.

Campers who engage in dangerous play, or unsportsmanlike behavior, will be required to sit on the bench and forfeit valuable playing time to showcase their skills in front of college coaches.
Campers are able to request roommates prior to camp. Our staff will do everything possible to accommodate roommate requests, but we cannot guarantee all requests. Our staff will prioritize health and safety above all else when assigning roommates.

Fubol Goals directors will review important camp rules on the first day of camp to ensure a safe environment for everyone. Campers must follow these rules, or they risk being dismissed from camp by a Futbol Goals director. The camper’s parents will be notified by a Futbol Goals director immediately upon learning about a rule violation.
If a camper is dismissed, they must collect their belongings and leave campus on the day of their dismissal. They may not stay at camp for any reason, and their family will not receive a refund. Dismissed campers are responsible for their own expenses once they are dismissed.

Only cloth or fabric masks that cover the nose and mouth are acceptable. Campers will be able to remove their masks during meals only. Campers should bring many masks so they can wash or dispose them after use.
Campers must social distance as much as possible throughout the camp. Staff members will assist them with social distancing while on the sidelines during training or games, during transition times between events, in the dining areas, and in dormitory entrances/exits and hallways.
Campers are not permitted to enter any dorm room other than their own; they are not allowed to congregate in common areas; and they must use their assigned bathroom only.
Roommate assignments will prioritize the safety of the campers. We will do our best to accommodate requests, but travel plans and the team placement will dictate roommate assignments.
A Futbol Goals staff member will conduct daily room checks in the morning to promote clean and safe living conditions for the campers. Room checks will require the campers to wipe down their dorm furniture and personal belongings with sanitizing wipes, empty the trash, and organize loose items in the room. The staff member will also check each camper for covid symptoms, including their temperature, and remind campers to wash their hands for 20 seconds and not touch their face.
Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the dorms. Campers must use it every time they enter and exit the dorm.
Soccer equipment used in training and games will be wiped down with sanitizing wipes after each use.
If any camper is showing covid symptoms, they will be isolated and tested immediately.
If a camper tests positive for Covid-19, their parents will be notified immediately, and they will be responsible for any associated costs of finding a place for the camper to quarantine. Campers who test positive for Covid-19 may be able to stay in a Kiski dorm dedicated for quarantining.
Any person who has been in prolonged close contact, such as a roommate, with a camper who tests positive for Covid-19 will be isolated and tested immediately.
