*Includes: 4 shirts, 1 ball, 2 autographed items, 1 photo with Mia, Kristine, and Tisha…and more!

Program

Mia, Kristine, Tisha and their TeamFirst staff lead each on-field session to create a competitive and fun environment. Athletes benefit greatly from being taught by the best about what it takes to be the best.

Athletes are divided into groups by age and assigned a World Cup country that they represent during each training session throughout the week. Girls are challenged in game-like situations to play outside of their comfort zones, pushing their limits as individual players while having a blast as a team! Off the field, campers enjoy a beautiful camp setting, relaxing electives, and fun evening activities.

Leadership & Staff

Directors Eric & Liza Wittenberg lead the daily operations during the Spring Break camp, just as they would at the Academy in Otis, Massachusetts. At least two college-aged Cabin Counselors live in each cabin with 8-10 campers. Counselors are hired and trained to supervise the campers and lead them as positive role models. A Registered Nurse & Certified Athletic Trainer care for the girls when illnesses or injuries occur.

Accommodations

Athletes live in comfortable cabins with Cabin Counselors. Each cabin is equipped with comfortable bunk beds, full bathrooms with showers, storage areas, and electricity.

Transportation

Most local families drive to camp in Fruitland Park, Florida. We do provide free ground transportation from Orlando International Airport (MCO) for athletes flying in from out of town. See below for driving directions to Camp Geneva.
