My son Logan really connected with Coach Thomas - he really liked him and said he helped him with many parts of the game. My son is pretty shy, so it was really neat to hear him talk about someone with as much respect and admiration as he had/has for Coach Thomas.I really liked how encouraging the coaches were - it was very genuine, coming from a place of caring. They were very positive as well - I felt like the coaching staff were very positive role models.
