Helping him advance as a player
July 19, 2021: Jacob enjoyed the higher level of training compared to other camps he attended in Northern California. Each day after camp he shared different aspects of the technical training and how it was helping him advance as a player. He also appreciated that the other players were competitive players which forced him to think and react faster with his decision making during scrimmages. He also enjoyed having the college coaches and college players as trainers. He learned a lot about college levels, opportunities, and specifics that he had not learned yet. The campus and field was very nice and safe. Finally, my son loved the food options and looked forward to them each day.
— Joann N. Parent

Soccer all day long!
July 26, 2021: Hudson had such a great time meeting new kids and playing soccer all day long! The highlights for him were of course the cafeteria time with soda and cookies, being able to be a real college campus playing soccer and his award at the end of the camp with the goodie bag. We will definitely be back!
— Jayme R. Parent
Huge smile, exhausted, sore, and excited to tell us what she learned!
July 26, 2021: Peyton had a blast! Because of covid she missed having a soccer season last year so this was her very first time touching a soccer ball. She was overwhelmed the first day as everyone else seemed to know what to do or where to go but we spoke to her coach and she was very helpful to take extra care to help Peyton. We really loved the energy that the coaches and staff brought every day! Peyton would run off the field with a huge smile, exhausted, sore, and excited to tell us what she learned. Peyton has asked to come back next year and we will be signing her up! Thank you for the environment and love that everyone showed this week.
— Paula G. Parent
The camp was wonderful
July 26, 2021: First and foremost, Hudson shared each day that he had fun. From a parent perspective, the camp was very well organized that began with the pre-camp emails to the signage leading us to the camp location on the University campus and the daily schedule. We arrived late on the first day due to a pre-booked vacation and we were greeted warmly upon our arrival. No hassles! Both Hudson and I thought that the schedule was well organized and broke up the day thoughtfully. My sons attended a Nike Basketball camp a few years ago and it was not organized at all. Great progress, this camp was wonderful. I will see if his footwork has improved at the game tonight.
— Karen F. Parent
Soccer with others who love the game
July 19, 2021: I loved learning more about pressure as a team, different ways to create a better defensive system. Mostly I just loved being able to play soccer that much with others who loved the game
