University of the Pacific
UOP offers incredible athletic facilities with plenty of natural grass fields and a modern turf field used primarily for field hockey. Knoles Field is the new home to the men's and women’s soccer programs. There are new facilities under construction as part of a five-year UOP Athletic District expansion. All the athletic facilities are located in the southwest corner of campus. Brookside and Gardemeyer natural grass fields are located nearby and are just literally a 5-6 minute walk from the dormitories that campers stay in! In addition to plenty of training space, other athletic amenities include Janssen-Lagorio Gymnasium, the brand new Eve Zimmerman Tennis Complex, sand volleyball courts and the Baun Fitness and Performance Center. Chris Kjeldsin Pool Complex is an Olympic sized outdoor pool venue used for the Pacific Tigers Swim and Water Polo teams. The Alex G. Spanos arena is the home to the University of Pacific men’s basketball, women’s basketball and volleyball teams. The Pavilion features seating for 6,150. As with all Eurotech locations, campers are encouraged to bring indoor training soccer shoes in case of inclement weather.
The dorms are a very short walk to the fields and Eurotech® campers are housed in modern air-conditioned dormitories complete with a common area, billiards hall, laundry facilities and outdoor picnic amenities. Room types in most UOP dormitories include doubles and a limited number of singles. Roommate requests are typically honored and attending teams and groups of players will always be roomed in adjacent rooms on the same floor whenever possible. Eurotech staff are present 24/7 in the dormitories and male and female campers are typically housed on separate floors or wings. Laundry facilities in the dorms feature plenty of coin operated washers and dryers accessible to all campers, guests, and staff.
The DeRosa University Center housing many of the dining centers on campus is located within a very short walk to the UOP dormitory quad and offers buffet style meals with several entrees daily, full salad/fruit bar, dessert bar and drink bar. Campers will also enjoy all their favorites like pizza and burgers during their week of camp! The DeRosa University Center features a campus bookstore, sandwich shop and grill as well as a coffee shop, in addition to the main dining hall. There are also drink vending machines in the dormitories and Eurotech® also offers the Pizza Party for all Residential/Overnight campers every other night. Camp Enrollment
As a first year camp site, Eurotech will limit the enrollment to no more than 50 campers. In recent years, nationwide Eurotech® enrollment numbers have averaged anywhere from 60-125 campers per venue per week pending the year, location and interest in a specific region. Both teams and individual players from all over Northern California and the region are welcome to join the national and international coaching staff that the adidas® Soccer Performance Centers are known for. As always, enrollment will be on a first come, first serve basis and be set-up to guarantee the correct ratio of goalkeepers to field players.
The University of the Pacific is a very secure campus and features 24-hour campus security guards who work directly with the Eurotech® Director on-site along with experienced UOP Summer Camp Staff, Eurotech® Coaching Staff, Medical Staff, and Counselors who also live in the dorms and monitor camper activity daily.
