Overall, she finished her career with 11 points (four goals, three assists) and 49 all-time wins.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Shoot with more power
At camp I learned how to improve the power behind my shot. The camp staff were incredibly knowledgeable about the sport of soccer.
— Abby W., Camper 2017
She had an amazing, knowledgeable experience. She received a lot of positive feedback from all of the coaches and she learned a lot more to help improve herself.
— Kristina Z., Parent 2017
I got better and had a lot of fun
I feel like I became a better shooter and passer at camp. My only negative was that the meals were too close to the sessions. Maybe have more snack breaks with fruits and vegetables instead of big meals.
— Janessa G., Camper 2017
Loved the World Cup Games
I wish there were more World Cup games because they were so much fun
— Eli A., Camper 2017
