Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
June 30, 2018: Let me first start saying it was my first time visiting Franklin Athletic Club. The facility was clean and neat I want to give Kudos to the staff everyone that I talked to this week was friendly and professional. I invited my mother and sister to the basketball ceremony on Friday. My family kept remarking on how clean and pleasant the staff was. The coaches were great they started the camp on time and was very knowledgeable about basketball. One of the things that the coaches stress was good sportsmanship and helping each other when they fall, they should help them up.
