Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I attend a clinic if you can watch me at tournaments?
Although showcases are a great way to display your talent, the coaching staff is limited in how much time they can watch a player. In a 30-40 min. half a player may only touch a ball a handful of times depending on the flow of the game or what position she is playing. The clinic allows players to showcase their talent in smaller spaces and the coaches can manipulate the game if they want to see a player in multiple positions.

What can I expect when I arrive at the clinic?
Most prospects come without their friends so everyone is in the same boat. It can be a bit of an intimidating environment at first, which is why the coaches and players go out of their way to learn everyone’s names and encourage prospects to the do the same. Coach Sushner believes that if the environment is less intimidating than the players can showcase their best selves.

Am I going to be 1 of 100 players at the clinic?
No! We keep our clinics small so as a coaching staff we can take the time to evaluate every single player and have private conversations. It’s important that the prospect is also a good fit personality-wise — an intimate environment allows for personalities to come out. Registration stops after 40 girls.

What can I expect when I leave the clinic?
At the end of the clinic, prospects are free to leave immediately or stay and chat with Coach Sushner about where they stand in the recruiting process. Prospects can also email Coach Sushner for feedback and she will respond in a timely manner.

How important is it to attend the clinic if Coach Sushner has already seen me play?
One of the main reasons to attend a clinic is for prospects to evaluate the program for themselves. Is this a college you can see yourself attending for four years even if soccer weren’t in the mix? Is the soccer program a good fit for you after learning about it through current players and coaches? Do you like the coaching style? Do you like the culture of the team?

How do you get on our mailing list to receive open registration updates and brochure?

Do you have enforceable consequences for prohibited actions?

May I use a credit card to pay for camp other than online.

What if you need to cancel due to a medical circumstance?
Doctors note and written request will need to be submitted.  Once received and confirmed,  refund/credit will be submitted on a case-by-case basis.

What if camp gets canceled?
