July 16, 2022: Loved how it was it run with goals and incentives along the way to keep the kids motivated and engaged. This was an unforgettable experience for my daughter. I loved the updates and videos on Instagram as well as the awards ceremony at the end of the week because it showed that they were proud of the work and progress happening. And I liked knowing what my 7 year old daughter was doing and that I was dropping her off in great hands!
July 15, 2022: The quality of the coaches, the drills the children experienced, and the skills my daughter learned were the highlights.
June 28, 2023: My child came home smiling and excited to go back each day! The entire experience was amazing!!!
