The following are answers to frequently asked questions.
Where are the in-person clinics located? Clinics are held in-person and each clinic location will vary based on the date. Please make sure to review the date and location that you register for.

What type of field is it? Most of the fields we use are artificial turf, however with new locations being added there may be grass surfaces, we recommend you reading the notes for the location. For artifical turf, we recommend athletic shoes or molded cleats. For grass surfaces, we recommend molded cleats.
Is there a limit on how many family members can attend? It depends on the facility/location and the capacity limits at the facility. The Eagles Academies are held at a wide variety of locations. For events hosted at the Eagles Indoor Practice Facility, there is a capacity limit and thus we must limit the number of family members who attend with each registered participant. For locations that are outdoors (typically at high school or college stadiums or practice facilities) we typically do not limit the number of guests who can attend with each participant. If you are attending an event at the Eagles Indoor Practice Facility, each registered participant is able to have 2 family members attend and watch. If you would like to request an exception to this limit, please contact us at Anthony@eaglesacademies.com. We do try to accommodate all of our families as best we can.
What is the cost? The cost for the in-person clinic is $125 plus credit card and online fees.
