How much does PPA cost?
What forms do I bring to Registration?
None! All of the forms are due ONE MONTH prior to camp. Please only send your forms one time. To prevent duplicated copies of paperwork for our office, please mail, email or fax your forms back to our office. The contact information can be found on the Forms Page (click here) of the peakperformancesoccer website. Our office will contact you directly if you are missing any forms.
Do we receive any gear when we arrive at the PPA?
All PPA players will receive a personal PPA training top that you can’t get anywhere else!
Is there a deadline to register?
Acceptance is on a first-come, first-serve basis, due to limited space. We anticipate a sellout for the fourteenth straight summer. Reserve space as soon as possible.
Can a player contact another coach and have them attend PPA?
High school, College and Club coaches are more than welcome to attend. Once the game schedule is set up, we encourage as many as possible to attend.
Can parents watch?
Sure. There are plenty of opportunities for parents to observe practices and matches. We just ask that parents watch from designated areas and not interfere with the coaching and playing.
My son just had a physical. Do I need a medical form?
2022 or 2023 school physicals will be accepted as long as our PPA Medical Form is completed.
What if my son gets injured at PPA?
Professional athletic trainers are on duty at all times and hospital services are always available. The PPA is a fully insured, but players must also provide their own medical insurance. The staff assumes no responsibility for accidents or illness, on or off the soccer field.
What if I need to cancel my registration?
A camp credit will be issued to any camper who must cancel prior to camp. No money will be refunded. There are no exceptions for injuries, or any other circumstances. The camp credit is a voucher for a session of camp at PPA and will be for the amount paid by the camper. It is transferable to another party and is good through the 2024 camp season.

PPA’s Goalkeeping Academy recruits some of the best college coaches in the country. Each day, the goalkeepers will be involved in “goalkeeper only” training sessions.
