Highly recommend!

My daughter attended your camp at UNC Charlotte this past summer and I could not believe the change in her. It was great that she was placed with her own level of skill in the morning but was able to play with better players in the evening and being able to learn from that. The small skill groups and stations kept it interesting for her and gave her good one on one time with the coaches. I would highly recommend this camp to others due to the level of experience and knowledge of it's coaches.
