Soccer
(Session I)

Our Soccer track works hand-in-hand with the Eckerd College DII Soccer Program. The curriculum is developed by Eckerd College’s accomplished Head Coach, Luke Sheekey. In addition to Luke, expect to find Resident Coaches specializing in each position from all over the world. As for the pros, we are working with the Tampa Bay Rowdies & Tampa Bay Sun Professional Clubs to bring in the stars your athlete watches on ESPN. We split our players into groups on the field to guarantee that every athlete benefits from an elite level of training specifically designed to enhance their skill set in their chosen specialty, fostering significant growth in their abilities.

Lacrosse
(Session I & II)

In our Lacrosse track, athletes can expect targeted training delivered by a distinguished team of seasoned Resident Coaches alongside our Headlining PLL, NLL, Team USA, or otherwise Professional Coaches. Resident Coaches have extensive collegiate playing experience and are experts in their respective positions, including specialty roles such as goalie and face-off/draw. To maximize the development of each player, we meticulously organize athletes into groups based on their gender, age, and skill level. Athletes can expect position-specific drills, IQ development through hands-on coaching & demos, our famous end-of-session tournaments, and so much more.

Get Coached By The Pros

Take a look at some of our headlining professional coaches that will be joining us this summer! It’s unbelievably exciting for our campers to learn from players they look up to and watch on TV! These players are not just skilled, but they love the game and know how to teach it well.

FAQ’s About The FL Overnight Camp Experience

How many Campers attend the Signature Florida Overnight Camp?

We cap this camp at 125 campers per session before waitlisting campers. Typically this camp does fill up, so we recommend locking in your spot for the upcoming summer as soon as possible.

Do I need lacrosse or soccer experience to sign up?

Signature Sports Lacrosse Camps have programs created for all experience levels. If you are new to the sport, we will teach you the basics and progress you with your own group of similar players.

If you are an advanced player looking to be challenged- we also have the programming for you and will group you with similar players to your skill set.

Can I sign up for both lacrosse and soccer?

Yes! When you register, you will be asked to select Lacrosse Camp, Soccer Camp, or a hybrid. Hybrid campers go to one session of lacrosse and one session of soccer camp each day. 

What level is the coaching? I have an advanced player…

All of our coaches play or have played at the Collegiate level and are experts in their positions. We have a player development model that is specifically designed to advance players in a camp setting and work with the coaches in coach orientation to design a thoughtful curriculum based on what they bring to the table. We employ coaches of all positions, even specialty positions like goalie. Then when we hit the field, we group players by skill and age so they are with similar players who will challenge each other and raise the level of play.

Can I join as a commuter if I live local?

Absolutely! We offer 30% off for our commuters. Commuter camp includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the full experience (minus the bunking) that overnight camp offers. Commuters are dropped off before breakfast at 8:30AM, and are picked up after the evening activity at 9PM. 

Use the discount code COMMUTER at registration to be prorated for the commuter experience and automatically be placed in the commuter program. 

Do you offer Sibling or Group Discounts?

When you register siblings, we offer a 10% discount to each registration. This discount is automatically applied at Registration. 

For groups or team discounts, we offer $150 off per camper for groups of 3+ and $250 off per camper for groups of 5+. Please reach out to director@overnightsportscamps.com to generate your team or group discount. 

What if I have a picky eater or food restrictions?

We note food and dietary restrictions at registration and work with the campus dining team to ensure that all food is labeled. Additionally, we ensure that campers with food restrictions have options to select from that match their diet. For our picky eaters, campus dining teams present multiple options for each pallet. In a typical dinner, campers have access to 1-2 variations of a full meal (comprised of protein, veggies, and grains), and then supplemental options like pizza, pasta, chicken nuggets, etc.

What’s the Phone Policy at Camp?

We limit phone and technology access, but we do not restrict it. Campers may have their phones in their dorms and before bed. Campers are asked not to bring their phones to activities, meals, or on the field. For the full camp experience, we recommend campers do not bring phones (and they are always able to set up a Facetime home on a counselor’s phone). We actually see the more access the camper has to a phone, the worse the homesick feeling is.
