    Enjoyed meeting Brian Boland

    July 06, 2017: He enjoyed meeting Brian Boland and having a picture with him. The director of the camp was engaged but the first day he had to tell each coach what to do. It would be better if all of them were ready to start with drills and not to lose time teaching the coaches what to do. I was not there every day but the last day I observed that one of the coaches was not putting the effort to even return the balls.

    should advise campers to bring alarm clocks

    7/28/2016 - Please update pack list to suggest bringing alarm clock; camper was only 9 y.o. so & did not have phone/alarm and was reprimanded for being late. Also, more organized p.m. activities might be nice.
