Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Loved the coaches!
June 12, 2017: This camp was very good at giving us specific instruction to our game. They were able to observe us and see what we were doing wrong and help us fix it. The coaches made us all feel special and accounted for with specific instruction.
— Jessa H. Camper
June 10, 2017: I was very impressed with how organized this camp was from start to finish, made it very easy on the parents. I was also impressed on the caliber of coaches at the camp. My daughter improved so much over the short period of time and is excited to show off her new skills!
— Todd L. Parent
June 10, 2017: The instruction at camp was amazing and I really noticed myself improving. It was so fun to go to a camp dedicated to just goalies. I loved meeting other goalies and making friend in my position, something I have not had the opportunity to do as much in my club team. I really loved this opportunity and I want to come back next year for sure!
— Lexi S. Camper
Be back next summer!
June 10, 2017: This camp did an excellent job if keeping the girls entertained and engaged within sessions and between each other. The coaches were not only super helpful, but so much fun for the girls. It is always special when coaches care as much as the girls do about helping them succeed. We are very impressed and will be back next summer!
