Indebted Parents

Coach Carlos Goffi was truly amazing. I cannot believe just how much he worked with and encouraged our daughter. She finally came to the point of going beyond being a good player with her friends but instead wanting to do it for herself. My husband and I are completely indebted. He is incredible! Thank you!!!
