Frequently Asked Questions

How do the college coaches identify my player during the program?
Each player is provided an individually numbered, reversible camp jersey at check in.  Each scouting college coach will receive a booklet with each player’s bio/information that was provided during player registration.  Grad year, GPA, School, Club team, etc. will be included. Their jersey number will be linked to their player profile in this booklet, allowing the college coaches keep track of each player of interest throughout the program.  

Are there any discounts available for this program?
Yes. We offer team/group discounts. Just let us know how many players you plan on sending. We also offer discounts for siblings and current Lou Fusz players.  Email us at SHOWCASE@FUSZ.COM for details. 

I want to work with a specific college coach who is attending, how can I make this happen?
 Every player will have the opportunity to be viewed by all the coaches in attendance.  If there is a specific coach or school you would like to be grouped with, email us at SHOWCASE@FUSZ.COM to make this happen. 

My player is a goalkeeper, will there be GK specific training?​
Yes, there will be goalkeeper specific training conducted during the weekend. The schedule outline includes multiple GK specific training sessions built into the camp sessions prior to the GKs joining their teams/groups for drills that require going to goal, as well as small and full sided games. All GK sessions are conducted by current college coaches and collegiate goalkeepers. GKs receive individually numbered program T-shirts of a different color than those provided to participating field players for easy GK identification. More than 70% of the college coaches in attendance have indicated that finding a goalkeeper is one of, if not their highest priority this year.

In the event of inclement weather, causing a complete or significant portion cancellation of the program, partial refunds will be given.  We will make every effort to keep the program running as scheduled, but may make adjustments to ensure we are able to get each player the most out of their time with us.  All refund decisions are made at the discretion of the program directors.

What Covid-19 protocols are in place and how will this affect the program?
Player safety is our highest priority during all Lou Fusz Athletic events.  We have hosted several very successful and large events during the pandemic and have done so by implementing STL County and national Covid-19 guidelines and practices.  Currently no formal Covid-19 restrictions are in place, but we are taking necessary precautions to mitigate health risks including some of the below protocols:
-Social Distancing
-No sharing of food/drink
-Program size restrictions
-Training/Game group size restrictions

My player has a medical condition requiring specific attention.  Will there be medical staff on hand?​
Yes, we will have full-time medical professionals & athletic trainers on-site for the entirety of the event provided by Washington University / Children’s Hospital Young Athlete Center. ​

Can parents sit in on the recruiting / informational meetings, or view the games?
Historically we have allowed parents to participate in the recruiting seminar and Q&A with college coaches, however due to Covid-19 risk mitigation procedures, this year we will not be able to allow parents to participate in this portion of the program, however parents WILL be allowed as spectators during the full sided games.

My player is driving to the event, what are the parking instructions?
Any player that will be driving themselves can park onsite, free of charge, in our gated facility parking lot. Any parents coming to watch any of the games, can also park in this lot. 

Is there a camp store / concessions?
Yes, we recommend players bring extra cash for snacks, drinks, and additional food outside of the mid day lunch that will be provided on Saturday. Our team store located onsite will also have Lou Fusz Athletic and adidas gear available for purchase.
