    • We recommend U7 and above for the skill elements we are planning

    • We recommend U7 and above for the skill elements we are planning

  1. I just want to confirm that payment for these camps are due at time of camp and not at time of registration. Is registration just reserving a spot for my player??

    • That is correct. No money needs collected till the day of the Camp

    • Hi Nikki,
      if your child has caught on pretty quick and has a good foundation of the basic soccer skill set then by all means. We don’t want to throw a bunch of complicated drills at a new player and have them get frustrated. If your child is still honing the basic skills this one may be a bit over the top. There are a ton of Camps running this summer that would fit. The Challenger Camp, Forney and North Forney HS Camps among others welcome players of all skill levels.

  2. For my boy to attend the camp is one fee and goal keeper training is an additional fee?

    • No. Pay the single fee then decide which sessions he wants to attend

  3. We we’rent able to get the payment online, do you know how i can get the payment??

    • Sure,
      just bring us a check on the first day of Camp, made out to Forney Competitive Academy. We will also take cash

      Thank You!

      • I was asking what is the difference between the FCA camp that is expired and the one that is not??Cause I’m trying to sighn up to see if hey are the same

        • Morning Josh,
          there is nothing different about the two “tickets”. It is simply a function of the website programming used to host the Camp sign-up. Use the ticket that is currently active.

  4. I registered my daughter but never received a confirmation email. I did however screen shot my confirmation page and have that info. Just wanted to make sure I’m not missing any steps or needed info.

    • Morning Brianne,
      I have your registration. See you at the Camp!

  5. Is it still too late to register and be guaranteed a shirt for the camp?

    I would be registering a girl age 6 and a boy age 7.

    • I’m afraid so Melissa. We had to have the shirt order to the printer in time to receive for the Camp. We ordered extras in most sizes to try to accommodate everyone but the interest in this camp has been more than we could have hoped for.

    • No Ma’am, not yet at least. The City will notify us by 2:30 if they are closing the park. However I do not believe we received enough rain to call it off at this time. If that does happen I will email everyone. The plan will be to slide everything one day and finish on Friday.

  6. I have my daughter registered but know a few more that might be interested. It shows “expired”, is it too late for additional sign ups?

    • Not at all. We will do walk up registrations.
      Make sure they bring an inflated soccer ball, water and they wear shin guards under soccer socks.
      Since it is past the June 1 deadline we cannot offer a T shirt but will offer a $10 discount off the camp price.
