    August 2, 2017: Fun experience and I loved the focus on skill development. By far the best Goalie Experience of my child's 5 year youth career.

    Outstanding experience!

    August 5, 2016: The Boys Goalie Camp was an outstanding experience for my son. He really enjoyed meeting new friends and playing in the "goalie games" every evening. The instruction from staff was very knowledgeable and engaging! The staff was great at providing one on one time with all the boys and the camp site was perfect! 

    — Kevin S. Parent

    The best choice!

    August 5, 2016: I just wanted to tell you that my son attended your Goalie School last week and it was by far the best camp ever!  I promise we have spent a lot of money on camps and private lessons and he learned so much at your camp. Most camps simply don't focus enough on goalie instruction! This was by far the best choice and investment we have ever made in our childs future as a goalie.

    — Brent C. Parent
