Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
July 8, 2017: My daughter really enjoyed this Camp. She went to the UNC Chapel Hill LAX camp the week before and did not love it at all. There were 300 plus girls there and it was just too crazy. Olivia really enjoyed this smaller environment and camp size at UNC Charlotte. More focus on smaller groupings was great for her. She also liked that the housing was really nice being in more of an apartment than a small little dorm where eight girls shared a bathroom. She felt the instructors in Charlotte were great and wants to come back to this one next year instead of UNC Chapel Hill. Great job!

Can't wait till next year!
June 29, 2016: The welcoming environment made camp so much fun and a great place to gain skills and knowledge about the game. My coach was very helpful and gave excellent feedback. She was really good about working with us individually and making sure that we all knew what to work on. I really enjoyed the camp can't wait till next year!

June 30, 2015: This was an amazing camp I learned a lot and made some amazing friends. The staff was great both on the field and off. And I would gladly go back another year!
— Candice M. Camper
June 28, 2015: My daughter attended your camp at UNC Charlotte this past summer and I could not believe the change in her. It was great that she was placed with her own level of skill in the morning but was able to play with better players in the evening and being able to learn from that. The small skill groups and stations kept it interesting for her and gave her good one on one time with the coaches. I would highly recommend this camp to others due to the level of experience and knowledge of it's coaches.
