My daughter, Addy (redhead, huge knee brace) was a participant last year.   She’d been a full time ski racer for many years as well as a soccer player, and finally, as a rising senior, decided to focus more on soccer.   As she was traveling abroad for most of last summer, the Academic 50 camp was her first (and probably only) shot at a credible ID camp, even if it meant a 48 hour turnaround from Israel to Colorado to Chicago.
As a parent, I was completely impressed with the professionalism you and your team demonstrated – not to mention your flexibility in the face of crappy weather!   I thought the session on how to do a pitch was great, and has proven as invaluable to Addy in college interviews, scholarship interviews and job interviews as it has with soccer coaches.   The coaches’ session on D1 and D3 was great, helping to give her more focus on where she wanted to end up.   Finally, both the selection of and participation by coaches was far better than we’d anticipated (Rush Street being a short ride away!).

Of course, the proof’s in the outcome.  Addy met all the coaches she’d “targeted,” had a number of further contacts, 3 “offical visits,” 4 offers and will be attending Smith College as part of Coach Platts’ program this fall.  Going in, she told me her dream was to “go to a great school and play soccer for a great coach.”  Thanks for your part in helping her make that happen.
Thank you again,

I just wanted to personally thank you for your efforts and enthusiasm in leading the EXACT Girls Academic 50 ID Camp. My daughter Gena attended the camp and it was truly a life changing experience in the best possible way.

We’ve attended soccer camps at various universities, but this was no ordinary soccer camp experience…it was the “best of the best” and your personal energy also made a big difference with the kids and as a parent, I could even see the difference and impact you had with the coaches and how they responded to your level of energy and excitement.

The quality and access of the coaches that you assembled was the best that we’ve experienced, but the dynamic of the true education on the college experience/recruiting, Q&A sessions with the coaches (kids and parents) and the “Go Mental Movement” academic aspect of the training was unique and extremely impactful on my daughter.

The Exact Sports soccer program and focus on academics and recruiting aspects that your company organized this weekend was truly special and has made a major impact on Gena, her goals, and pathway to college…THANK YOU!!

We will be back for future Exact Sports programs/camps and again, great work!

Attending EXACT’s Academic 50 ID Camp was one of the best experiences I have ever competed in. It really helps you develop a relationship with coaches by teaching you how to introduce yourself, and how to keep in contact. They cover the do’s and don’t’s of the recruitment process. Additionally, the mental training parts are incredible. Really an eye opener! Lastly, you play in front of and learn from over 50 college coaches. It’s a great program, and I’ll definitely be coming back!

As a first time camper at the EXACT Academic 50 ID Camp, it was eye opening in regards to the information that was provided in terms of recruiting. Amazing to work with over 50 coaches who represented a diverse array of college coaches. I feel 100% more prepared as it relates to recruiting and thr speed of the college game. I came home with some great techniques and tips that I am already implementing with my club team thanks to their mental training and the coach feedback. I will definitely attend next year. Thank you EXACT for an exceptional camp!!

My daughter had a great time at the EXACT Academic 50 ID Camp and experienced some fantastic soccer those 3 days!

She is a rising Freshman, and clearly was not there for the same reason as majority of the other girls there, but totally has taken a lot out of the program as she prepares for her coming 4 years.  Your program has opened her eyes to schools she has never thought of attending, since initially she was thinking to stay close to home!  Thanks so much again and keep up to great work.

My daughter “La”, has gone mental!

As a college coach I really enjoy getting the opportunity to work closely with the players and learn more about them as individuals. Players get exposure to so many different things through the EXACT camp such as variety of coaching styles, different levels of programs as well as the mental training side which is critical to their development. I would recommend these camps as a perfect way to get better at soccer, get exposure to many college coaches and develop a mental program which will help them achieve all their goals.
