Still doing the drills!
My ten year old was quite energized post camp. It's been almost a week since camp ended and he's still doing drills he learned there. It was also his first time away from home for that duration. He never missed us. We're planning on returning next season!!!! He said coaches were fantastic!
Will be back
Coaches were great, son definitely wants to return next year.
