I loved that I was able to communicate and work with a variety of different coaches. It was an eye opening experience and I was surprised how sociable I was with the other girls at the camp, because I am usually shy and don’t want to talk to people. Thank you and two thumbs up to you for getting me out of my shell.
I really appreciated the atmosphere that EXACT Sports Elite Camp provided. Everyone was included in any drill or game we were doing. It was an awesome experience to meet girls I’ve never seen before early in the morning, practice drills and techniques with them, and play with them/against them later in the same day. It is very different than practicing with the same team every day, every year. It was an experience to go out on a field with complete strangers and interact with them on the field. I also loved the number of college coaches who were at the camp. Especially at my young age, I haven’t yet focused on one or two schools yet, so having a wide variety coaches from different schools and levels was exactly what I needed and was looking for.
The staff, the players, and the coaches that were apart of this camp were such genuine and caring people that I really felt welcome when I stepped on the field. Also, it was just a really fun experience where I had the chance to interact with fellow soccer lovers and I learned so much. I have to give it 10 out of 10 soccer balls.
This is one of the first times I’ve had the opportunity to interact so closely with college coaches and it really opened up my eyes not only to the opportunities that are available to me, but also the personalities of these coaches. They truly care about the improvement and development of their players and it’s so wonderful spending time with such professional and involved people.
I had a great experience at the Chicago EXACT Soccer Camp. The one-on-one conversations with coaches was invaluable as was the overall coaching I received during training and games throughout the weekend. I plan to be back next year! On a side note please share with your staff how great they were when I went down with an injury on Sunday…torn ACL and surgery in my very near future, but having had the opportunity to showcase myself and meet the coaches and staff was the best experience I have ever had at any camp so far and I WILL be back next year.
I went to the first ID Camp in Philly. We were so encouraged that we attended this one in DC. I have always dreamed about 1) going to college and 2) playing soccer in college. I got to meet a lot of great coaches and athletes. I learned something new at each camp. I wish there were more camps close to me so we could attend more. I am a senior and need all the help I can get in hopes to find the right college. I loved how the coaches were there to help us and give us directions on the spot. My mentor Coach was Mike Eckberg. Towson is on my “dream” list – and we are now going to schedule a visit as he suggested. I am so excited and I know I still have a long road ahead, but every journey has a beginning. Even though I am getting started a little late, I feel like EXACT really has helped me come flying out of the gate!
I was actually so nervous going into the camp, but once I got the to camp all of my nervousness went away. The coaches were all very nice and the camp was a comfortable place with everyone being very supportive. Not only was it enjoyable, I was able to talk to the coaches one-on-one, and get honest and thoughtful feedback to improve my athletic abilities and talents.
Before attending the EXACT Camp, I was very uneducated about college soccer and didn’t have a set school I was interested in, but this camp helped me have a better understanding of what to look for in the future.
I have been playing soccer since I was five years old. I am now 13 years old and I continue to love playing soccer, but lately I have been struggling. I had lost confidence in myself and I was always afraid to make mistakes which as a result I stopped taking risks and challenging myself. But, after attending EXACT Camp for just one day I was able to learn a lot of things. I learned that it is OK to take risks and just because I am a smaller player than other athletes does not mean I am not a strong player. EXACT Sports helped me get my confidence back and to be a more vocal player. I learned valuable lessons that I can take with me on and off the field. I learned so much in just one day. I wish the camp was all week long. Thank you again!
P.S. I already started looking into colleges.
EXACT offers a great experience that blends on field training in a college atmosphere with off field soft skills needed to help become a better candidate for recruitment. The coaches provide excellent, real world feedback to parents and athletes on what and what not to do. Overall its a great experience that provides insight that will serve the players and the parents well during the recruiting period.
I was impressed with the overall flow and their ability to adapt to adverse scheduling conflicts from the facility. This is a great opportunity for my daughter to see beyond the club and school soccer, and the annoying reminding from us. It helps keep her motivated and going in the direction she wants to go with this sport. We’ll definitely return to future camps. I as a parent was able to network with parents of older girls as well which helps me greatly in the posit of my daughters goals.
The EXACT Camp was really informative and challenging. The coaches were very honest and gave me some really good information and tips, which I really enjoyed it.
Overall, it was an excellent camp experience, wish I lived in America to visit more ID camps, coaches gave me much more coaching and training then my own coaches, so it was good to see that I can pick it up a bit to improve my overall performances. I have gone MENTALLLLL!!!!!!!
I loved the environment of the EXACT camp. It’s so different from other camps because it takes into account the mental aspect of the game instead of just the physical aspect. The environment was friendly and welcome, and this camp gave me a giant boost of confidence whether for striking up a conversation with a college coach or just on the field. It was very informative and I feel like I’m on the right track for being recruited at a college that is the right fit for me. Thank you!
My EXACT ID camp experience was great. It was a wonderful learning experience in the perfect environment. The coaches and the EXACT staff made sure we focused on not only our skills and abilities that are crucial, but they also really focused on mental aspect of the game as well and I really enjoyed that.
EXACT is a very good way to promote yourself if you are wanting to play at the next level. The most inspiring thing about EXACT is that they want everyone to believe in themselves, which goes a long way when you are trying to be your best.
The camp was very well run, and it is essential that everyone try to go to at least one EXACT camp while they still have the opportunity.
My daughter had a great time. The coaches were professional and very approachable. The question and answer panel with the coaches was informative. There was more interaction between the players and coaches than I expected from attending other “camps”. The coaches really made an effort to be available when not on the field. I would highly recommend this experience to others. Soccer players can never get enough exposure for a reasonable price, nor can they gain enough experience playing with girls that are unknown to them.
I was very satisfied with the program and how it was run. Being new to these types of experiences and camps, I was happy to see how the staff was kind and helpful to all the athletes. I know that in the future if an opportunity like this swings around the corner I will have no trouble snatching it. I had an amazing time at this camp and hope it happens again. Thank you to all for hosting it. Also having celebrity’s host a camp like this one makes it very special to a lot of the athletes.
