EQUIPMENT
For the day campers, every day each player needs to bring 2 t-shirts, indoor and outdoor soccer shoes, shin guards, and 2 pairs of socks that fit over the shin guards. Also, each participant should bring a water container filled with water so they remain properly hydrated. We will have additional water coolers available for the campers. All campers will need to have their own soccer ball for the duration of the camp session.  Adidas soccer balls will be available for purchase at the camp store.  The residential campers will be sent a checklist of additional equipment needs for the overnight camp.

CANCELLATION POLICIES
Please note there is an administrative fee associated with every registration, we must place large deposits on all facilities and housing months prior to camp. Therefore a portion of the fee will be non-refundable in the event you need to cancel in the months leading up to camp, please double check your schedule to ensure there are no conflicts. If you need to cancel within one month of camp you will not be guaranteed a partial refund. Please contact us in writing at marylandsoccercamp@umd.edu for questions or to submit requests for refunds.

MEDICAL
A staff of certified medical trainers is on duty at the camp at all times. A doctor is on call at the P.A. Medical Clinic, and the student health facilities are readily accessible. Because of the rigorous daily schedule, each camper should come to camp in top physical condition. The camp assumes no responsibility for accidents or illnesses. Please bring your own athletic tape if you need to be taped before playing. Our Training Staff will be on hand at check-in to answer any questions or address any concerns regarding medication or other medical issues.
