Absolute Best Time

"The Nike Camp at Sacred Heart University was extraordinary. My son is an advanced level soccer player and said he had the 'absolute best time' ever. His statement reflected the soccer instruction, soccer coaches, soccer atmosphere and the entire camp experience in general. He has participated in other 'soccer boarding camps' so he has a lot to compare. He 'loved' attending the Nike Camp and will participate again next summer."
