We've included just a few quotes from parents, coaches and campers to help you know how Northwest Soccer Camp is making a difference.

Northwest Soccer Camp is the highlight of summer at my house. I grew up in Seattle and attended camp over 20 years ago as a kid. Now I have 2 kids and I continually receive joy from soccer as a youth coach, a “soccer Mom,” and playing soccer myself 2 times a week. Going to camp is something we look forward to doing together as a family. My kids love camp for lots of reasons–the evening activities, the beach hikes, the friends, the crafts, the counselors, and of course, SOCCER!! There is something for everyone, be it a newcomer to the game or an advanced player. We will continue to attend NSC for the love of the game and the fabulous staff. Thanks Cliff McCrath!

First of all, THANK YOU so very much for all you’ve done for my girls’ team from Alaska. They had a ball and, of course, came away with better skills and a better understanding of what it takes to be an elite athlete! The staff at NSC is second to none!

I’ll admit it: I’m an unabashed and unapologetic supporter of Northwest Soccer Camp. Not only do I believe it represents the best soccer camp in this region of the country – and possibly the United States – it represents a tremendous value for our whole family. To put it simply, over the past decade, NSC has become part of our summer vacation planning.

I love Northwest Soccer Camp! I grew up on the Northwest Soccer Camp fields. I not only learned about soccer, but was encouraged to pursue my dreams and deal with life. Uncle Nubs and the veteran NSC staff helped me to reach my potential as a soccer player, and pushed me to be the best person I can be.

My daughter absolutely loved camp. She’s so charged up about soccer – I’ve never seen her so enthusiastic. … her skills took a quantum leap forward … Her first touches are perfect; she passes right on target; she’s always communicating with teammates; she knows where to run off the ball; she even WANTS to chest trap!! … She never had a coach get after her so much, and be so knowledgeable about the game. And the evaluations are positive, but remind her of the things to continue to work on. … She also said you gave the most phenomenal motivational speech on Tuesday night. I asked her what you said, “Well, I can’t remember, but it was GREAT.” ” … You made a big difference in my daughter’s life.

I really enjoyed camp and I learned so much, I plan on coming back next year.

We chose Northwest Soccer Camp because of its excellent reputation, but also, along with soccer skills, I wanted my daughter to learn ‘life skills’ . . . . how to be ‘okay’ with being away from home, learning teamwork, making new friends . . . . Her time with you has meant SO MUCH to her . . . . she loves it!  She has made lifelong friends and learned so many things during her time at camp.

I like playing soccer because it improves my physical skills and keeps me healthy.  But it’s also just plain fun! … (NSC is)… my favorite sports camp! The coaches are so awesome and I learned a ton from them which makes me a great player.
