The coaches and staff were amazing. My daughter said she learned more during this week than she did on her team last season. Thank you GameBreaker!

reviews-10 Sarah J. - Camper

It was great to bond with other girls who love the same thing I do. We had so much fun at camp. The coaches were really good and taught us a lot of new things. Save me a spot next year.

reviews-10 Rachel G. - Mom

Our daughters had a great experience at this camp. Being different ages I was worried about the level of instruction they would receive. Your staff did an excellent job of putting them into groups that challenged them but did not frustrate them. Both of them ended up clearly improving their skill level during the week while having so much fun.
