My daughter never felt too confident about her game, but my daughter was coached by national champions, I think she felt really inspired by them. I have noticed a big change in her attitude towards her game which makes me really happy to see

It was great to see what a college campus felt like, especially sleeping in a college dorm and having lots of time spent on improving skills.
