    Best Teaching!

    I feel camp is what you make of it. If you're trying your hardest you should be marking all the boxes as 5 (star). This is the best teaching I've had for anything.

    Great experience!

    My son has never worked so hard at a camp, and I thought for sure he would not want to repeat it, but on the contrary he would have lived there. The coaching staff was a perfect blend of intense, kind, strong, dedicated, and tough. He thoroughly enjoyed his experience and we will definitely be back next year!!

    Positive staff

    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.
