Coaches were excellent. Facilities are great.
July 27, 2015: Nike did not send the shirt size that I requested. I expected the camp to include many higher level players, but the level of competition was not as high. Coaches were excellent and very helpful. The facilities were great.

a nice camp
7/23/2015 - I was okay with the camp for the most part, but the level of play I was expecting just wasn't there. I was just hoping for a little more diversity and level of play in the camp. Overall, it was a nice camp.
— Kari M. Camper
