Athletes Traveling Alone
Players are welcome to travel to the EXACT ID Camp without an accompanying family member (though most do arrive with family). Players will be responsible for their own transportation 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 enjoyed the intensity of the EXACT Academic 50 ID Camp. Unlike some other soccer camps, EXACT does not waste time on anything. The soccer is very strong, the coaches are engaged, and the seminars are the best of any soccer camp in the country. I went to another elite level ID camp earlier this summer and although the soccer was strong there was not nearly enough for the amount of time spent there. The seminars were also very weak. EXACT also gives you the opportunity to showcase in front of all 50 coaches in attendance. At the other elite level ID camp I attended you only had a chance to play in front of a third of the coaches in attendance. The EXACT camp also gives you ample time to talk to coaches who you want to look at you during lunch and in between sessions. For a goalkeeper, it is an especially strong camp because you have some solid coaching and you have a separate showcase for all the coaches in attendance, which is rare for a camp. If you buy in to the EXACT system it is one of the best ways to get seen.

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
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!

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.
The EXACT SoCal Academic 50 ID Camp was well organized and offered numerous opportunities for one-on-one discussion with numerous coaches right from the onset and throughout the three-day camp period. In addition, showcase opportunities to demonstrate skill sets were abundant with tournament style play and actively engaged coaches who were assigned to coach tournament teams as well as assigned to evaluate individual players. The feedback was tremendous and it was one of the best camps I’ve ever attended!
The EXACT SoCal Academic 50 ID Camp was a great experience with just playing soccer and getting to meet coaches from all around the nation, there was over 50 in attendance! The staff at camp seemed to care a tremendous amount about the success of each player. The EXACT camp was well run and organized, by far the best I’ve ever attended!
