Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
July 27, 2018: Wanted to thank you again for such an awesome camp. It seems like all the players we sent had a great time and learned a few things. My son Dalton had nothing but kind words to say about the 3 coaches. And at the end of camp just the bringing players up and speaking to them on a personal matter about each shows a lot about your character and how you guys coach as a whole. Thanks again.

Very good teaching on first touch
July 27, 2018: The highlight for me was taking some really good shots and getting positive feedback from the staff. Very good teaching on first touch and dribbling.
— Jonathan S., Camper 2018
July 27, 2018: My daughter loved the whole experience. She loved having soccer many hours a day without distractions. Great camp! Probably need to balance out the genders a little. She and her roommate were the only girls.

My daughter learned a lot about work ethic
August 5, 2018: My daughter learned a lot about work ethic. I really enjoyed the parent end of camp session. Camp did a great job of mixing in some fun downtime with all of the training (i.e. pool, game room, etc)
