    Trying the shooting camp next!

    This is the first camp my son wants to go back to.

    June 25, 2016: My son does not like "camps," because he usually doesn't find them "fun" (He has attended various soccer, lacrosse, basketball, football, track, and swimming camps). This is the first camp where he has asked if he can go back again. Active and organized, the two best traits of any sports camp. Good energy and fun. My son liked all of the competitions, especially working on individual skills that led to scrimmages. A very positive overall experience. Kudos to the camp.

    My son felt supported and learned a great deal.

    July 15, 2016: Trev was an excellent, attentive and supportive coach. My son felt supported and learned a great deal. He loved the team camaraderie. The head coach was super also. Strong, clear and garnered respect from all. Very nice that he asked the boys to thank their parents for giving them the opportunity to go to this wonderful camp. Much appreciated comment from him.

    Perfect combo

    July 15, 2016: This was my son's second year. He liked being remembered by the coaching staff. He was physically exhausted but not emotionally - perfect combo.

    Really liked the Riverdale HS gym

    August 1, 2016: Camp was great. Really liked the Riverdale HS gym, smaller and made camp feel less scattered and more tight. Son/myself liked this session the best.

    Our son was safe and having fun.

    August 14, 2016: Coaches were great. We felt our son was safe and having fun. A suggestion would be to have some music in the gym, to start the day and get the kids fired up upon entering camp.

    The coaches were positive and encouraging

    July 15, 2017: My boys had big smiles on their faces everyday I picked them up. The coaches were super positive and encouraging. I can't believe how much they improved in four days!

    Great team building

    July 15, 2017: I like that the staff seemed really excited to be with the kids. There was a lot of positive energy and that was very encouraging to see. I really appreciate the fact that staff gave the kids a lot of breaks in order to stay hydrated. There wasn't a time when I walked in, where I didn't feel like the atmosphere was very supportive. Overall, this was a really wonderful experience. Thank you to everybody who put it together, kept things organized, and kept the kids safe.

    Good focus on skill development

    July 16, 2017: Good focus on skill development through repetition of specific plays. My son came out of the camp with a much better grasp of good passing and dribbling with his head up...which has clearly improved his game. Thumbs up to the coordinators, director and coaches. Well done!

    AWESOME Job Coaches!

    June 29, 2018: I love the enthusiasm that the coaches bring to this camp, they love basketball and that shows in the way they teach and treat the players! They go out of their way to encourage every player to play their best and the lessons they teach go beyond the court. AWESOME job coaches!!

    Grayson Learned A Lot!

    June 29, 2018: Grayson learned a lot. What I was most impressed with was the players evaluation. Coach Daelon was spot on with Grayson’s strengths and weaknesses. Great coaching and insight in such a small amount of time. Grayson’s first question as we were leaving was, “can I come back next year?”

    — Gretchen M., Parent

    Real Positive Atmosphere

    July 18, 2018: It's all about the energy the camp staff brings to the court. It starts with the Camp director and flows nicely to the coaches. Real positive atmosphere, kids love the mix ups in ages and the feedback is a big plus. We have experience with multiple camps right now and this is by far the best in price/quality.

    — Dilo K., Parent

    this camp was amazing for him

    June 28, 2019: Christopher was very excited about the camp and talked a lot about the drills and how he was able to learn to finally get the footwork down for his layups. He is new to basketball and this camp was amazing for him.

    George loved this camp!

    July 12, 2019: George loved this camp! This was the first time he's actually learned something at a camp instead of it just being summer daycare.
