If you need to cancel or transfer for your session due to Covid-19, please call or emails us so we can discuss all options.

Refunds are not available for vacations, special events, short-term illnesses of four days or fewer, or other personal commitments that prevent attendance.
We reserve the right to revoke the registration of any child who consistently disrupts normal activities. While this is a rare occurrence, it is important to note that consistent disruptions diminish the experience of the other participants.  No refund will be made if a child is dismissed from the program.

How do teams register?
In order to receive a team discount ONE person/coach from the team must serve as a contact with the Owl Soccer Camp office to coordinate the team registration.
1. Prior to registering online, one person/coach will e-mail owlsoccercamps@gmail.com with all the names that are a part of the team. Once we have that, a Camp Staff Coordinator will e-mail you back with the Discount Code.
2. To register online: Campers register using the normal registration option for the camp they are attending. THEY MUST LIST THE TEAM NAME and put in the coupon code in order to receive the discount. The team discount will be deducted from the balance due. We cannot guarantee a discount will be applied if the camper does not list the team name where requested. Also once you have registered and paid in full we cannot go back and add the discount! Team discounts for all camps will be $25.00 for every team member in a team of 10 or more.

What happens if there is bad weather? If it rains, is overcast, humid, hot... we expect to continue having our training sessions. We always train. As soccer is played in all weather, we train in all weather. However, if the weather becomes dangerous (lightning, high winds, floods, extreme heat, etc.) we will move the campers to the Rice Football Stadium Concourse. If we have to cancel a day due to weather, we will offer make up dates for the days missed. The safety of our campers and their families is our top priority. We also advise you to check your emails as we will send updates and information addressing any weather issues especially if the extreme weather hits close to pick up or drop off time. 

Will there be a camp store? A camp store will be open during all of our soccer camps. Our camp store will include snacks and sports drinks.

What do I bring to camp?
All campers will be required to wear the necessary equipment required to play in a real game, which means wearing shinguards, socks, and cleats at all times when training. It is also strongly encouraged for each camper to bring their own refillable water bottle, an extra t-shirt, money for snacks, and flip flops or running shoes for indoor activities and meals.

What is the day camp lunch option? The lunch plan this year will be a boxed lunch that will vary each day. It will include a sandwich, wrap or entrée with sides such as chips, fruit and/or bars. It will also include a sports drink. The lunch plan will cost $60.

Please note that if you do not select this option, the camper will be responsible for bringing his or her own lunch to camp every day.
