Keep doing what you're doing
January 3, 2017: My son enjoyed camp. I was impressed with the level of coaching he received and pleased with what my son learned. He loved the shooting machine. Because there were measurable goals put in place at the start of camp, he was able to see his progress and was proud of his results at the end.
— Lynn B. Parent
He enjoyed it all
January 9, 2017: Kendal really enjoyed doing all the shooting. He said this was always the weakest part of his game and after 4000 shots, it has really improved and he is much more confident.
— Nicola J. Parent
My son formed a wonderful relationship with Mike Allen.
July 6, 2016: Mike is a wonderful man and a great coach. We were concerned about the small camp size, but it ended up being a great week for our son. He learned a lot and formed a wonderful relationship with the coach, Mike Allen. He worked them hard, but they also had fun excursions which broke it up. My son's favorite part was forging a relationship with Coach Allen. He also felt he got much stronger from the conditioning and loved the scientific computer analysis of his shot accuracy. Thanks, Coach Mike for helping us understand your method and plan and for giving our son your time and expertise. You made the week great for him.
