Do boys and girls train together at the co-ed camps?

At the SCA Soccer Camps girls and boys will not typically train together on the field, but they will be together during meals and some free time. However, depending on ability, talent, and the total number of campers it is at the Camp Directors discretion to train oposite sexes together. For match play, the teams are primarily single sex.

What is your refund policy?

If you cancel two weeks prior to the start date of the camp you will receive a full refund. If you cancel within two weeks of the start date of the camp we will issue you a camp voucher for all camp fees paid, valid through the following school holiday camp. Your camp voucher is transferable to any family member and may be used in the sport that you are initially registered in.

Most SCA Soccer Camps are tailored mainly to field players, however you do have the opportunity to get some goalie specific training as well. Please email info@sportscampsaustralia.com.au to let us know if you are interested in goalie training and we will contact our Director to let them know.

What is SAQ

At some of the SCA Soccer Camps we introduce students to SAQ. SAQ workouts consist of short, intense drills that require you to accelerate or decelerate quickly, while moving backward, forward or side-to-side. SAQ improves balance, power and neuromuscular firing patterns so that your movements become fast, dynamic and precise. You’ll notice improvements in your response time and your ability to change direction lightning fast—as in soccer, tennis, basketball and other sports.

Do You Need SAQ?

If you do sports such as soccer, golf, tennis, netball, or other sports that require quick bursts, you’ll want to listen up. These and many other sports are explosive—and explosive sports must be trained explosively. Whether you are sprinting down the pitch, or cutting back on the courts, there is always a critical moment where you need extra power between the waist and the knees.

What’s more, SAQ training helps protect you from injury when you are trying new sports or adding new challenges to your routine. If you teach your muscles to fire contrary to what they are used to, you will prepare your tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints for the unexpected. SAQ will bulletproof you for the future, so you’ll be less likely to break. Oh, and did we mention SAQ is a whole lot of fun too?
