BSC Summer Camp Guide
Thank you for being interested in our Bethesda SC Summer Camp Program! We are excited to be putting on another year of great summer camp programs for players across the DMV! Below are some common questions about camp.
What is the general weekly schedule like for camp?
Bethesda SC runs the Elite Day Camp, Evening Camp, and SSL Hours Camp.
Elite Camp will run from 8:30 am -2:00 pm, each devoted to a specific skill or training situation, followed by short-sided games and technical work. Players will work on tactical training in the second half of camp and participate in scrimmages based on skill level.
Evening camp (6:30-8:30 pm), the high-school-aged players (14 and above) will work on tactical and technical training designed to sharpen players' skills before the fall season. Our older players will work with our MLS Next and ECNL staff on fitness, strength, conditioning, and small-sided activities. The younger campers (13 and younger) will work on their technical training with a syllabus similar to the morning Elite Camp.
High School Training Camp is structured for players to work with our Bethesda coaching staff on tactics and specific in-game scenarios in the morning and then get SSL hours in the afternoon.
When will the schedule for each camp be released?
Camp schedules will go out weekly on the Friday before camp (around noon-1 pm) and Sunday evening (around 7 pm). Please make sure that your LeagueApps account is set up to receive messages.
What should my camper bring to camp?
Campers should bring a mask, sunscreen, water, a snack (optional), hand sanitizer, sneakers and cleats, shin guards, a soccer ball (labeled with your camper's name), and comfortable clothes.
In terms of sunscreen, please make sure that your kids apply it before each camp session.
Where can I pick up my player at the end of the day?
Players can be picked up at the Richard Montgomery HS parking lot near the main stadium field (Bethesda SC signage will be near the main gate to help parents). Our coaches are instructed to stay at the location until all players are picked up. We will notify you of any changes to the schedule as early as possible. All camp weather information will be provided via email.
My child played for a BSC U8-U12 team last year. How do I apply the free week of camp to my registration?
