Highly recommend!

I would highly recommend this camp because my technique improved in just a few hours. This camp also teaches players how to eat right, and great dry-land drills.

Great camp!

Thank you for putting on this camp. My son has not stopped talking about all the cool things he learned. He is also very sore from the many great exercises he learned. He can't wait to teach the rest of his team the many new drills and skills learned. Hope to return again soon.

Thank you!

Thank you Genai this has been the first clinic of this level to come to Utah. I hope this is the first of many great clinics and camps to come. My son really enjoyed the one to one training that you gave him. I hope you felt their appreciation. You saw three of the great treasures of our state, great athletes, strong work ethic and snow. You taught them, challenged them and inspired them. We hope to see you again soon.
