Camp was great and the coaches were excellent. My daughter walked away tired and happy.
Meg daughter LOVED the camp and wants to go back next year. Best coaching she has ever had!
My player came back from camp and for the first in a long time I was the one learning some new lessons. You taught her so well, she’s now passing on everything to the other team members and we’re seeing such rapid improvement in our games.
