This was the first camp of many that my son attended to which we had direct contact with the coaches. For my son to have the ability to get immediate feedback on his performance and things to do to improve his skills far exceeded what I expected to happen at this camp. This is not the typical camp, it is exceptional! Father of 2012 Southeast Honor Roll Camper
