Wonderful experience!

The camp was a wonderful experience for our daughter. She came home with a strong sense of skills needed to improve her game. The instructors were attentive, encouraging and skilled. My only note was the food in the cafeteria. It could use a few more vegetarian options. Other than that everything was great!

Come learn new skills!

The coahces made the two hour sessions a lot of fun and go by really fast while at the same time teaching fundamental skills. I loved experience life on the USC campus and living inthe dorms. Can't wait for next summer!
