Learning from college coaches and players was a great experience. I picked up many new tips and can\'t wait to use them during my season. Definitely will come again next year!

I signed up for an overnight camp and I went there not knowing anyone, but I left with so many new friends! It was so much fun getting to know other kids who want to get better like I do, and on top of that the coaches made sure we picked up new skills.
