What do I bring to camp?
All players should bring a proper sized soccer ball for their age, soccer cleats, shin guards & water. Please also wear appropriate clothing for the weather.
*** We highly recommend you bring 8oz Water per hour at the Soccer School.

What do Campers receive?
In addition to the 10 weeks of professional soccer training tailored specifically towards players aged 4-12 years old all players also receive a free youth ticket to a Ventura County Fusion PDL game and an opportunity to meet a player or technical staff at Camp.

Will there be Player Appearances at Camp?
If the Soccer School Session is during or near the Ventura County Fusion PDL season it is likely but it is not guaranteed. Our goal is have a player or technical staff appearance whenever possible, but that is not always realistic with player schedules. All players will have the opportunity to meet the team & get autographs at the game they receive a ticket to.

Is there an Early Bird Discount?
Not at this time.

Who do we recommend go to the Ventura County Fusion Soccer School?
The Soccer School is ideal for the Beginning to Intermediate player ages 4-12, but great for any soccer player looking to improve their game!

What is our Philosophy?
To provide an ideal and enjoyable environment for players to enjoy while they are learning to understand the game of soccer. Fusion endeavors to inculcate all of the qualities of competition, sportsmanship and comradeship by way of top quality coaching and an adherence to the principles of positive progression across the age and ability spectrum. The provision of all-embracing programs that allows talent to develop to its full potential, without the constraints of pressure, is an essential factor in our philosophy. 

Is there still room for my child to sign up?
YES! Unless the word “Closed” is printed next to your Soccer School session week, there are still spots available!

Do you offer any before or post camp supervision?
We do not offer any supervision before or after any of the Soccer School sessions.

Can my child walk or take the bus home after the Soccer School Sessions?
For safety reasons, we prefer all players be picked up by a parent or Guardian after each Soccer School session. Players are allowed to walk or bus home if a parent or guardian sends the player with a per-written note giving permission to do so. The letter/ note would also detail that the Ventura County Fusion is not liable in this situation.

What happens In the case of rain?
In the case of rain; we will continue the Soccer School session as planned! (Please bring appropriate clothing for this scenario: Coat, or warm up pants.) In the event that the fields are closed due to rain or any other cause we will contact everyone via email prior to the start of the Soccer School session for that day to let them know about the cancellation.

My child has a medical condition, should I tell someone?
Yes. If your child has a severe allergy and must carry an EpiPen please let the Soccer School instructor know on the first day of the Soccer School. Also it is important to let the Soccer School Instructor know of any medications or inhalers need to be taken during Soccer School hours.

What group will my child be placed in?
Players will be broken into age appropriate groups first. If we feel a player’s skill level exceeds that of his/her peer group we will ask if they would like to join an older group. Also we tell everyone on the very first day- “If you came with a friend or teammate, close in age, you are more than welcome to stay in the same group as them.”

Do you take walk up registrations?
Yes, as long as the Soccer School session is not listed as “Closed” on the website. You can write a check out to Ventura County Fusion for the program desired.

When is it too late to register online?
Your last chance to register online is 24 hours before your Soccer School session is set to begin. After this point, we will only be accepting walk up registrations. Walk ups may pay by Check or Cash only. No walk ups for Closed sessions.

How often do the Soccer School sessions run?
Most of the Soccer School sessions run once a week for a period of 6 weeks. The sessions run year round with a short break in between most of the sessions with an exception for the summer months where we incorporate a longer break in between the sessions.
