    Hard but worth it

    Camp helped me work on my overall game and I feel like it will pay off. Even though it was hard, I learned a lot of new skills. The coaches never made me feel poorly about making a mistake.

    Seanne had nothing but great things to share about the camp. I was proud that she was selected as an allstar, she really works whole heartedly at improving her skills and abilities as a player and a team member.

    How real!

    I appreciated how real it was. The coaches did not sugar coat what college coaches would be looking for in a player and what they expected of you as a player once you got on campus.
