Thanks

"Though we've said only a few words to each other, you have been a tremendous mentor for my daughter, Jacy. She has attended your Basketball Camp at Acton the past two years. After her first year at your Camp I noticed Jacy's basketball skills and confidence improved dramatically. Jacy tried out for a spot on the Lady Panthers Travel Team based out of Lowell, Ma. She was one of 9 other girls trying out for two positions. She made the team."

Once again, thanks to you and your team of counselors for what she learned, she is ready."
