GK Academy: What to Bring
The clothing and equipment you bring to camp will be the difference between a fantastic week and a week filled with discomfort and misery. We have compiled a list of things we suggest you pack in your big bags so you can have the perfect week!
Shoes: We suggest that you bring several pairs of shoes including a) Cleats, b) Running Shoes, c) Indoor Soccer Shoes (if you own them), d) Sandals
Multiple Jerseys: During the heat and humidity of the summer, it is nice to have a dry jersey available for each session. There are many long sleeve jerseys that are made of DriFIT material that are thinner, lighter, and cooler than traditional goalkeeper jerseys.
Gloves: 2 pairs if possible
Goalkeeper Pants: We cannot stress how important these are. They will prevent you from abrasions and general discomfort. They are especially important for breakaway training. 3/4 length capris or yoga pants are also a good option and can be purchased through the Dynasty Camp Store.
Sweat, Warm-up Suit and/or Rain Gear: It gets cold in the dorm
Soccer Socks and Shin Guards
Clothes: Pack plenty of t-shirts, shorts, socks, and all the basic essentials
Linens, Blankets, Pillow and Towels
Bathroom Items: Soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, etc
Swimsuit (and goggles if you have them): We will be utilizing the pool for training and recovery
Laundry Detergent: You will need to wash your dirty gear
Alarm Clock: 6:45 am wake-up comes early!
Mobile Phone: Mom & Dad might want to hear how you are doing
Sunscreen: You don’t want to burn
Bug Spray & Anti-Itch Cream
Spending Money: For the camp store, snacks, or visits to the grocery store
Athletic tape: A licensed Athletic Trainer will be present to treat and wrap
Braces or Protective Devices: Bring any braces, wraps, or protective devices that you need.
3 Ring Binder: To insert your Student Manual into. Your Manual will be a packet of unbound articles, workouts, lectures, etc. This will allow you to add updates to your manual each year you attend.
Notebook and Pen: You will want to take notes on training exercises throughout the week, lectures, and at your individual meeting
