    Amazing experience!

    Camp got my daughter excited about basketball! She has been playing for 5 years and was never that in to it, after a week of encouragement and skill building she is having so much fun playing! Every night she came home and wanted to shoot more. This was an amazing experience- we wish we would have started this camp with her when she was younger! Thank you!

    Gained skills and confidence

    My daughter went into camp apprehensive. She was worried about not knowing anyone or how her skills would match up. She came out of camp excited! She can't wait to come back. She loved her coaches! She made new friends! She gained skills & also a lot of confidence in her own abilities both on the court & off it. She'll be back. Thank you for putting on such a great camp.
