Here's what they are saying about our 3-Day Team Camps:

 

        The Rocky Mountain Soccer Camp is a fantastic experience! We brought our newly formed team there in the spring of 2015, and this was the perfect soccer environment to help our team grow, learn, and come together as a unit.  Mark is an excellent coach, and all of the players learned a tremendous amount from his program. As both a lifelong player and coach myself, I enjoyed every aspect of the program that Mark has developed. It is simply the best soccer camp that I have ever experienced. Our team went on to have a great season and RMSC was still the highlight that all of the players remember and talk about. I would recommend it for any team that is serious about playing the game the right way.  DAVID F.- COACH - U15 BOYS - UNITED SC - LOVELAND, COLORADO

 

        I first visited the RMSC to obtain my coaching NSCAA Level 6 cert. After working with Mark and staff, I quickly realized what a benefit RMSC would be for a team camp, especially from a historical perspective and the unique location where the outside distractions are removed. I registered my U12G Premier Team for the 3 day camp and it has been a difference maker. Without a doubt they came home better soccer players with enhanced skills. Not only have the girls continued with what they learned at RMSC, they have bonded so much as a team that it has far exceed expectations. I have figured they probably received more ball touches than they would have had at 3 or 4 soccer tournaments. RMSC is very well organized and I could not overstate how much fun they had. Coaches too! The good news is, they slept the entire way home and I will be bringing my U16 team down next year. I can not thank Mark and the staff enough for such a good time full of memories as we are blessed to have a camp like RMSC in our state.  DAVE

        The team camp at Rocky Mountain Soccer Camps, was an incredible experience for my girls team. Not only did they improve their soccer skills, but they learned to work together to problem solve in the team building exercises and really gelled as a team. RMSC is the best camp around!

        Watching young women grow not only on the pitch but as individuals truly makes me happy! The Rocky Mountain Soccer Camp in Victor, CO works hard to help improve all aspects of your life! I always learn so much when I am up there; and love getting to see just how fast these players develop over 3 days!! It truly was a phenomenal experience and I am so excited to continue onto the fall season!!!!  COURTNEY - COACH - U16 GIRLS - REAL COLORADO EDGE

     Hi Mark! This is Emilie. I attended your RMSC last summer with four other girls and I never kept you updated on how our season turned out; so I thought I would take the time and update you because your camp really helped me excel this season. We ended up not making it to the NCAA tournament by one ranking, but we did go to the NCCAA tournament in Florida where we lost in overtime in the finals.
     It was such a great season and I began the season playing outside defender but my coach moved me to forward on some occasions during the season. I remember telling you that my goal for the season was to score a goal and I actually did that plus six more. I was ranked second on my team for scoring tied with another girl and I also received the acknowledgement of offensive player of the week in the heartland conference. I was given the honor of receiving defensive player of the year and I received a second team all-American award as well.
     With all this to say I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for coming to Colorado last summer and how much of an impact you and your wife had on me. Oh and also I know that you had asked me to come and help this summer and I never answered your offer, and I do not know if it is even relevant anymore, but I wanted to say thank you but I won't be able to work this summer because I was offered a position on the Buxmont Torch Women's Semi-Pro team this summer in Philadelphia.
     I just wanted to let you guys know how thankful I am for everything you all did and I hope that you are already having a great and productive summer with the players that are coming to your camp. May the Lord bless you and all the work that you are doing to further His kingdom.    
     Thank you for your time, Emilie

So Mark... this morning as the girls we're eating breakfast on their first day back to school, we asked JuJu what her favorite thing from summer was. You will be happy to know that no, it was not surfing in San Diego, boogie boarding in Santa Barbara, a season pass to Elitches, RV camping at beautiful Dowdy Lake, attending week long  camp in Winter Park or cruising around Disneyland. No, her answer was Rocky Mountain Soccer Camp in Victor. Nicely done and we'll see you next summer!

"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you.  My daughter truly enjoyed your camp. She said she worked hard but had a lot of fun. Perhaps the biggest compliment of all was that the camp reminded her that she really loves soccer. She has really struggled and been frustrated since her concussion last August and to hear her say that she loves soccer and see her smile was worth everything. Thank you!!!"

Hey Mark,
 
Just a short follow up to say it was a surprise and great to see you on Sat. Tom and the girls were very happy to see you and talk about their wonderful experiences at RMSC. Tom and I talked more about RMSC later in the evening and it reminded me of the tradition of the camp. In the very early days I spent time coaching at the camp, Tom and my other sons attended the camp as players and counselors and the girls attended as players. A total of three generations of one family who in some way have been associated with RMSC. COOL to say the least. Now that Tom is living in DC and no longer in Africa, there is a good chance that on one of his summer vacations in Colorado that we will come up to Victor and enroll his kids into RMSC. Both of his sons play like Africans. Keep up the good work and let's stay in touch.
     As I mentioned to you on Sat., I give credit to many, many people for my six childrens love of soccer and you and Artie are included because of the
positive experiences at RMSC.

Coach Mark -

Just want you to know that Brynn agreed to go through the 6 week "skill/touch" program that is in the back of your manual. We agreed as a family ahead of time that once we would start it, we’d see it through.


Anyway, it has made a remarkable difference in Brynn’s ball control. At one group training session, Brynn controlled every air ball that was given to her. The head comp. coach singled her out for recognition in front of the 20+ girls because he saw the difference and knew that she had been working on some things on her own.


This afternoon, she trained with ’98 boys because she had a piano conflict with her ’99 girls session. She more than held her own and a boys coach that played Div 1 soccer for 4 years thought that she was a ’97.


Anyway, I wanted to let you know that the work that you put into that manual produces results way outside of where you coach, as you obviously intended when you wrote it.


By the way, we fully intend on coming back to your day program next year. If you remember, it would be great if you could shoot me an e-mail as soon as you have your in-town schedule set. We look forward to it and will be bringing one of Brynn’s good friends with us.


In about three years, my kitten will be old enough to attend the camp but for now, we look forward to the excellent day program.


Thanks…

"As a nine year returning camper I am happy to say that Rocky Mountain Soccer Camp is a place I consider home. I look forward to the camp every summer and I cannot wait for the day that I become a counselor and coach. I plan to influence young soccer players lives the same way my life has been impacted all the years at Rocky Mountain Soccer Camp."

"I have attended the RMSC camp for a while now, and the new permanent Victor location was by far the best time I've had at any soccer camp. The town of Victor and the surrounding wilderness are beautiful. Every single time I go I meet new friends, get back in touch with old ones, and have a blast playing soccer."


Sean Culliton - Camper - Centennial, Colorado


 

"As a parent of a long time camper at RMSC I have been thrilled with the experience my daughter had both at the junior and senior level camps. She loved the campers, counselors and coaches. She had a great balance of good soccer instruction and fun. I always knew she was well taken care of and safe. She just keeps going back!"

"Rocky Mountain Soccer Camp has always done a great job of preparing us for the season. For 10 years we have begun our season with RMSC and it has prepared us physically, mentally, and emotionally, to perform at our highest level."



Chad Reid - Golden High School Boys Soccer Coach - Golden, Colorado


 

"RMSC is a wonderful camp that is great for soccer players of all levels! Mark and all of the RMSC staff ensure a fun and educational time for each of the campers. The campers are always challenged to continuously improve as individuals and as a part of a team.


At the end of the overnight camp, my daughter returns home with so many fun stories and good memories from her week in Victor. She is never more ready and excited about playing soccer as when she returns home from camp! We have RMSC to thank for her continued improvement and passion for the the game of soccer! Thank you so much!"


Dawn Wall - Parent - Arvada, Colorado


 

"I have taken teams to RMSC for 10 years now, and have always had the best time. It is a great team building experience and a chance for the caoch to get to know their team better. The players look forward to it every summer. They wish we could stay longer. I highly recommend taking a team and experiencing the best soccer education and fun your players will ever have."

"Having the camp in Victor now makes things easier. The fields are so close. I can't wait to play on the new grass right outside our dorm door!"

"I love being able to be with my friends and play soccer at the same time. This past summer was a blast! I am trying to get more friends to come this year.

"I've been going to the Rocky Mountain Soccer Camps since I was a little kid and I have enjoyed it more and more every year. The coaching and staff are helpful, friendly, and always willing to teach me new things. I look forward to going back to camp and meeting new people every year. RMSC is by far the BEST soccer camp."
