1. Utah Utes Soccer Camps Rules and Regulations

Participants attending the Utah Utes Soccer Camps are expected to abide by the Academy's Rules and Regulations. Any participant who violates the Academy's Rules and Regulations will be subject to immediate dismissal. Parents will be notified and are responsible to make all travel arrangements for an immediate return home at their expense. No refunds or credit of fees from the Academy will be given under these circumstances.

  • The use of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco by campers is prohibited. Consumption of prohibited substances is reason for immediate expulsion from camp without a refund.
  • The campers are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner at all times.
  • Under no circumstances are campers permitted in a room occupied by the opposite sex.
  • A curfew procedure will be explained to the campers at an orientation meeting on the first day of camp. It will be enforced without exception. After evening games, campers must be in Heritage Commons unless supervised activities or specific permission from a staff member allows them to be elsewhere. Campers must be in their room promptly at 9:30 PM, with room checks at 9:45 PM. Lights out at 10:00 PM. A camper's absence from her room at bed check or the dorm without supervision of a staff member will be considered serious and the camper will be subject to disciplinary action.
  • As a courtesy to fellow campers and to other residents of Heritage Commons, loud and boisterous activity must be minimized. Quiet hour will be established and enforced. Campers are allowed only on the soccer camp floors in Heritage Commons. All other areas except for common areas are off limits to non-camp residents.
  • Campers must keep their rooms clean and in good order. Campers and their parents will be held responsible for any damage to rooms and furnishings, and payment for such damage will be billed to the parents.
  • Residential campers may not have automobiles while they are at the camp, nor may they ride in any vehicle without permission from a staff member. Campers will be required to turn in their keys at registration.

2. Cancellations & Refunds

Only a participant and her parents or legal guardian have authority to request a refund. NCAA rules require the Utah Utes Soccer Camps to have a written refund policy. There are no exceptions to this policy. For purposes of this policy, "Camps/Academy" is defined as one, four- or five-day residential, commuter or day Camp/Academy. Each Camp/Academy is deemed to have begun on the first scheduled day of said Camp/Academy as published on the web sites or in the brochure.

Refund Policy

A nonrefundable handling fee of $15 will be assessed on all cancellations requested by 5:00 p.m. two weeks before a day Camp/Academy begins (Winter DTA, Ute Kicker, College ID and other like clinics). A nonrefundable handling fee of $30 will be assessed on all cancellations requested by 5:00 p.m. two weeks before an Advanced or College Prep Academy begins.

For example, if you are attending an Advanced Academy beginning Monday, June 26 (hypothetical date), refunds will not be given after 5:00 p.m. June 12. The University of Utah Soccer Camps cannot be held responsible for any change or cancellation charges required by airlines, travel agencies, or other institutions. No refunds will be given after this deadline UNLESS the requested written documentation is provided proving the reason falls under either the injury/illness or death in the family exceptions. No exceptions apply after midnight on the second day of camp.

Injury/Illness Exception

If a camper is injured or becomes seriously ill BEFORE the Camp/Academy begins and is not able to participate in the Camp/Academy, she may receive a refund less the designated handling fee under the following conditions:

  1. The camper submits a signed written request by mail requesting a refund.
  2. The camper presents written documentation from a qualified physician that she cannot participate in the Academy due to the injury or serious illness.
  3. Both the written request and written documentation of injury/illness are received before the Academy begins.

If a camper is injured or becomes seriously ill DURING the first two days of the Ute Kickers Camp and is not able to participate in the Camp because of her injury/illness, she may receive a full refund of the tuition paid less $65.

If a camper is injured or becomes seriously ill DURING the first two days of the Advanced or College Prep Academy and is not able to participate in the Academy because of her injury/illness, she may receive a full refund of the tuition paid less $130/Commuter and $230/Residential under the following conditions:

  1. The camper submits a signed written request by mail requesting a refund.
  2. The camper presents written documentation from a qualified physician that she cannot participate in the Academy due to the injury or serious illness.
  3. Both the written request and written documentation of injury/illness are received or postmarked no later than 10 days following the last day of the Academy.

A camper who is injured during the first two days of camp is welcome to stay at camp and participate as much as her injury allows but she forgoes any right she may have had to a refund.

Death in the Family Exception

In the unfortunate event that a camper experiences a death in her immediate family while attending the Advanced or College Prep Academy she may receive a full refund of the tuition paid less $130/Commuter and $230/Residential if she submits a signed written refund request by mail stating that there has been a death in the immediate family that is received or postmarked no later than 10 days following the last day of the Academy. If this should happen during a Ute Kickers Camp, then the same policy applies and the participant will receive a full refund of the tuition paid less $65.

No refunds will be given after midnight on the second day of a Camp/Academy.

Each room shares a bathroom with one other room making it possible for up to four girls to be connected as suitemates. The players are under constant supervision of coaches and counselors who stay in the residence halls as well. If you have a roommate preference, please indicate her name on your application. Roommate requests will be honored whenever possible. More information about the residence halls is available at www.orl.utah.edu.

Insurance

Medical expenses incurred from injuries sustained at camp may be covered by insurance for up to $2,500. This is a secondary policy that coverts to primary coverage if there is no other accident insurance. Please contact your camp representative if you need to report an injury. Illness at camp is not covered by this policy. All claims for injury should be reported as soon as possible.
