The Elite ability level is specifically designed for soccer players who are technically proficient with dribbling, shielding, passing, shooting and taking on opponents while demonstrating an advanced understanding of field positioning during match play.
Elite level camps integrate high intensity skill training, challenging match-related decision making, incorporating advanced agility, coordination and strength exercises with ball fitness.
Players who wish to partake in Elite level camp groups are required to be evaluated at the first day of camp and must maintain a high level of training during the entire camp week in order to retain Elite level status.
The Core level is a designated ability group where players have advanced from the Essential level but have not yet consistently demonstrated that they can maintain the training intensity and technical proficiency at the Elite level.
The Core level concentrates on refining an individuals dribbling, shielding, passing, shooting, one-on-one skills and combining appropriate decision-making in match-related conditions.
The Essential level groups players that need to learn vital “DNA technical skills” helping them build self-confidence with the ball.
Essential level training establishes the necessary building-block skills for dribbling, shielding and passing while teaching when and how to beat an opponent during one-on-one game situations.
Combining match play to encourage appropriate decision-making is part of the camp curriculum that accentuates a developing player’s passion for the game.
When to Arrive
Campers should arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the start of the first day of camp. This will allow adequate time for each camper to check in with our staff. The rest of the week, arrival 10 minutes prior to the start of camp is recommended.
Campers must check in before the start of the camp. A parent or guardian must check their camper in with our staff at our front desk / check in table.
Campers must check out with the front desk / check out table. We will not let campers leave unless a parent or guardian has checked out their camper. If someone other than a parent or guardian will be picking up a camper, it must be communicated during the check in process at the start of camp.
In partnership with NY Winthrop Hospital an Athletic Trainer is present at each camp. In addition, members of our coaching staff are CPR / AED certified.
What to Bring
How are Campers Grouped?
Campers are grouped accordingly: by age, gender, ability level and teammate request. Groups may be adjusted in order to provide the best possible camp experience for the participants. During the camp, all groups will remain intact and rotate to the various coaches at each camp location. This allows the campers the benefit of working with various coaches and learning various skill sets.
If a camper must cancel any camp:
The Long Island Rough Riders reserve the right to cancel a camp date(s) if participation numbers are not adequate. You may select an alternate camp date(s), or you may request a full refund of tuition paid for that camp date(s). Cancellations of camp date(s) will occur a minimum of four weeks prior to that particular camp date(s).
Inclement Weather Policy
Weather will be monitored before the start of camp. In the event of inclement weather, campers will be notified by email one hour prior to the start of camp should there be any changes to the camp schedule.
Weather updates will also be posted on the website. If inclement weather should arise while camp is in session, the following procedures will take place.
Rain / Heavy Rain
In the event of light rain, camp will continue as planned. In case of long periods of heavy rain, campers will take shelter and all parents / guardians will be notified via phone call that campers may be picked up immediately.
In the event of lighting, campers will immediately be escorted off the field of play to a sheltered area. Parents / guardians will be notified via phone call that campers may be picked up immediately.
Extreme Temperatures (Heat Waves)
In the event of a heat wave, we will change the camp curriculum to ensure the safety of all campers. The amount of water breaks will increase throughout the day to eliminate dehydration.
In the event that a camp date is cut short due to inclement weather or any other unforeseen issues, every effort is made to make up the time. In the event that the time cannot be made up, no refunds or credits are offered.
