We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations.

This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

My son had a wonderful time

My son was the youngest camper and the smallest camper so I worried about his being accepted. But with the help of the director and staff, he was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time. Thank you.
