    Great camp!

    July 8, 2021: Great camp! Mary and Keith are the best coaches. Only downside was the actual location at the Storm King School…. Food was terrible. Hopefully it’s back at the Millbrook School next year.

    Enjoyed the camp very much!

    July 14, 2017: My child made new friends who she will keep in touch with. She enjoyed the camp very much. My daughter also coaches 1St- 4th grade Lax and will use the skills she learned to help our goalies.

    10 out of 10!

    July 12, 2016: The coaches at this camp were excellent at team building. My daughter who went alone made friends very easily because of all the ice breakers and effort the coaches put into making sure the girls got to know one another. They also had a lot of knowledge of the game. The experience they brought and game like situations made for such an informative camp. Not to mention their attention to the girls safety. 10 out of 10!

    — Tony D. Parent

    July 10, 2016: My daughter had a great time at goalie camp. She learned so much and is already looking forward to being in the goal next season to practice what she learned at camp. When I picked her up she was already talking about returning to goalie camp next summer! Wow!

    — Tyler C. Parent

    Thanks again!

    July 16, 2015: Hi Coach Schwartz, Thanks again for making such a huge positive impact on my daughter and helping to correct and twique her game. I will say that the #1 thing she loved the most about goalie camp, was to be able to hear others and vent herself, re what goalies go through, re how other girls see them and try to tell them how to play goalie. She has always felt that she was alone having those thoughts and feelings. She was glad to know majority of girl experienced same problem with their teammates too.

    — Lori W. Parent

    Best choice!

    July 14, 2015: I just wanted to tell you that my child attended your Goalie School laws 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 they 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.

    — Madison T. Parent

    Wonderful time!

    July 12, 2015: I wanted to take a quick moment of your time to let you know that my daughter had a wonderful time. This was her first "away" camp experience and it was much better than she ever thought it could be. She was so excited to tell me about every drill, every scrimmage and the fun she had meeting the other campers. I am impressed, as a parent, how open and honest your student coaches were with the campers on the importance of doing well in school, being a well rounded student, having a great attitude, etc. I am happy that she heard these essentials from a group other than her parents, as this is something we are constantly reinforcing.
