Excited to come back again next summer
July 29, 2017: My son came out with a positive attitude and with better basketball skills than he had before. William loved the camp. He is excited to come back again next summer. He loves playing basketball, but is not a real competitive child. This helped him enjoy the game and learn new skills as well as have confidence on and off the court!

Becca loved the camp as she met new friends and improved her all round basketball skills.
July 21, 2017: Becca loved the Camp as she met new friends and improved her all round basketball skills. It was a huge thing for us to bring Becca 9yrs, to the Camp in the USA all the way from Scotland. The initial contact via email, the further registration process, then arriving at Camp, everything was done very professionally and efficiently by Coach Gilmore and her staff. The whole week was a fantastic experience. Definitely planning a return visit.

The staff treated everyone the same.
July 18, 2016: The staff was awesome. They didn't just cater to the top tier players. They treated everyone the same, which helped my girls immensely. They were very driven but not "in your face". The co-ed aspect was also beneficial and the daily/weekly rewards kept them focused.
— Susan T., Parent
