The #GoMental Movement
By starting the #GoMental movement, EXACT has enabled thousands of current collegiate, professional, and aspiring high school athletes to reach their performance goals. We hope you'll join us so that you can reach your own desired destination.
All participants are responsible for booking their own lodging. Attending campers/families are not required to stay in a specific hotel. However, we have listed below a recommended option for our attendees.

The following airport options are most convenient for the event location:
Ontario International Airport ( ONT ) - 20 Mins
John Wayne Airport ( SNA ) - 45 Mins
Los Angeles International Airport ( LAX ) - 60 Mins
If you are flying home after camp, we recommend booking a flight at 8pm or later if possible. EXACT will not be able to provide rides to and from the airport.

EXACT provides a hotel message board on your Camp Dashboard. Registered campers can use the message board to connect with other athletes looking for shared hotel accommodations.
I just want to thank all members of EXACT Sports for orchestrating the Academic 50 ID Camp. I can honestly say we were WOWed! We appreciate the “extra” step your staff took with the players, as well as the parents. The camp was done in such a way that the campers had a great time and learned so much.
Kaden is our 4th child looking to play at the next level. We have sent our children all over the United States to all types of athletic camps (mostly soccer), and I cannot tell you the amount of time, energy and money we have spent. I can honestly say, this was by FAR, the best experience in our twenty year span of athletic camps (obviously we have been through this rodeo before)! Kaden is following your advice, the coach’s advice, and we appreciated the feedback. You opened several opportunities for him. We cannot thank you enough!
Again, excellent job my friends! Thank you for all the kindness you showed Kaden!
– Marianne Marshall mother of Kaden Marshall
I just wanted to reconnect with you, to say that your Boston event surpassed our expectations. I had been skeptical about ID camps- yours was not just a chance to play with college coaches, but a chance to understand the recruiting process, and formulate a strategy to own it. Despite similar events at my son’s school and club, we heard much helpful insight that we had not heard previously- and feel much better prepared to pursue an education at a good school, taking into account my son’s soccer interest and ability.
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.
My name is Tyler B. and I have been fortunate enough to attend 3 Exact soccer camps in the Chicago area. Since coming back from the recent camp in Schaumburg, I am happy to announce that …I am a college soccer player! I officially committed to Finlandia University. I feel that the mental training, interaction with college coaches and field training that I received while at camp definitely helped me in taking that next step. Thank you again for providing this opportunity!
I wanted to let you know I committed to a school (Illinois Institute of Technology) and also thank you for the experience your camp gave me. I participated in 3 of your camps (freshman / sophomore / junior year of HS) and I in each one I learned something different. Although I didn’t meet the coach from the school I am going during one of your camps, it is was because of the tools your camp gave me I was confident and knowledgeable enough to go through the process.
Before coming to your camp I didn’t know where I would fit, but I knew I wanted to play in college. It was only through the interactions with coaches in your camp where I got a clear and honest picture of what my best bets were and provided me with the tools to navigate the process.
Anyway, I just wanted to thank you and affirm what you probably already know which is you are doing a great job.
Matthew’s mom Renee provided the following feedback.
My son was on the younger end of the Exact Soccer demographic, nonetheless, he gained valuable experience, knowledge and confidence through this 1 day camp. He took the knowledge he obtained and used to gain himself visibility to his High School and Club Coaches. The good news is that he was offered roster spots on several clubs -AND- was offered a roster spot on his High School team. Of course, some of this is based on skill but I am certain that no kid going into his Freshman year went in with the confidence that he had to approach the coach directly in an effort to make himself known and make a lasting impression above and beyond his technical skills.
Just a quick note to thank you all for the work you put into the EXACT Academic 50 ID Camp this past summer. We traveled far to be there and appreciated your efforts to help us get sorted. Gus is super enthused about attending college in the States and your program really helped him to develop both a greater understanding of what that means, as well as confidence in doing so.
Today we flew back home, and just wanted to express our gratitude towards your staff and your camp. The final brilliant touch of the weekend was allowing us to ride to the airport with the coaches- we were car-less and your generous offer saved us hours of public transport train travel
