I have already recommended it to many friends
July 10, 2021: This was Anna's first time doing basketball camp and I was worried she was going to be way out of her league because the other kids seemed so much older/bigger/better. I was absolutely amazed at how much she liked the camp and by how great all the members of the coaching team were with her. On the second day I came to pick her up a bit early and they were doing some drills. Anna was up there as one of the kids doing the drill in front of the whole group - even though she didn't make a single basket everyone was so encouraging and she was so proud of herself. It was truly a wonderful experience, I have already recommended it to many friends. Even if your kid doesn't want to play basketball, the discipline, teamwork, and fun of the camp is so worth it.
