Frequently Asked Questions
When and where is check in/check out?
Check-in and check-out will occur at DeSmet Hall where the overnight participants will reside. See Map/Directions page. (Rascal Rangers will check-in at "The Beach Area" on campus.
May I combine discounts or coupons when paying my RSA registration?
Only one (1) discount or coupon, if any, may be used per registered participant per session. RSA reserves the right to adjust the balance due if multiple discounts or coupons have been applied inadvertently or intentionally in the registration check-out process.
What should I bring to Academy?
Each participant should bring his/her medical authorization form and Academy confirmation letter. A list of suggested items can be found under Academy Paperwork, one Academy dri-fit shirt and soccer ball will be provided to each participant.
What if a participant must leave Academy early?
If a participant absolutely must leave the Academy prior to it’s completion, we will provide a pro rated credit for that participant for the following year. The $200 deposit is non-refundable but is transferable to the next year’s RSA or to a family member. Please contact the Academy 24 hours or ASAP (in an emergency situation) to inform the directors of an early check-out in order to ensure a smooth check-out.
Is goalkeeper specific training provided?
For RSA ID Elite, a college GK trainer will provide training to include technical functional training in the morning session, tactical functional training in the afternoon, including integration with the field players, and supervisory warm-up and evaluation during the evening matches. Participants who select to attend the RSA HS as a GK must remain exclusively within the goalkeeper training group and will not be permitted to also train a portion of the day as a field player though they may see some time as a field player in evening matches. If less than eight (8) keepers register in the RSA ID Elite, a full refund will be offered less a $20 administrative fee or the keeper may switch to field player status to further develop foot skills and an overall sense of individual and team tactics.
GK training is offered in the afternoon sessions for both Junior Elite June & July by a RSA staff coach. Players may choose GK afternoon sessions on any of the first three days of Junior Elite. As we believe technical skills of passing, receiving, dribbling, and ball-striking are important for 10-13 year-old keepers, all participants will train as field players in morning sessions. Keepers who attend GK training should expect to play at least one half in goal during the evening matches on the day they attend GK training. There will be no specific, written, keeper evaluation given at the end of Junior Elite.
What kind of supervision is provided for the participants off the field between sessions and overnight?
Between all sessions and overnight stays participants are supervised at all times in the residence halls by current Regis University Men’s and Women’s Soccer Players as well as other Academy staff. Each Regis Soccer Academy staff member undergoes both state and federal background checks on a yearly basis before being hired.
When is my final Academy balance due?
Remaining balance is due on or before Friday June 8th, 2018. We will auto-bill the credit card on file for any balance due and will send you a receipt after the transaction is complete.
Is there a certified athletic trainer on staff?
The Regis Soccer Academy has a certified athletic trainer on staff available 24 hours a day during the Academy. Participants are expected to bring their own athletic tape if they need preventative taping for an existing condition.
What is the ratio of participants to staff?
