Soccer Camps 


The basis of these limitations of coverage is the issue of control. The closer a soccer activity is to an activity in the normal course of the traditional fall and spring outdoor seasons, the more likely a program will have total control over the activity and the more likely it is to be included within the parameters of our coverage. Conversely, the further away an activity gets from such traditional outdoor seasons, the less control a program will have over it and the more likely coverage would not extend to it. Should anyone ever have any question on whether a particular soccer activity is covered please contact Tara Petricca at tpetricca@mayouthsoccer.org.
