    I learned a lot!

    July 29, 2017: I wanted to let you know how much I liked the Girls Goalie camp I attended last week. I really feel like I learned a lot that I will put into practice this summer at my last two tournaments, The Grind and Capital Cup.  I look forward to coming back again next year!
