August 12, 2016: My daughter was so excited to show us her new basketball skills she learned at camp. My daughter loved meeting other girls who love basketball too.

My son was challenged by playing up a higher level.
August 12, 2016: Overall, my son had a great week. He was moved up to play with the older kids on the first day, because he is an experienced player and needed to be challenged more. This was fine, but as a parent, I would have preferred to have been consulted first. He liked his coaches and he liked that he was challenged by playing up a higher level.
The coaches made my son feel comfortable.
August 13, 2016: My son was very nervous first day. The coaches made him feel comfortable and part of everything. Ended up being a great experience.
