How are the athletes placed into groups?

What is included with the camp?

Each camper receives professional training, lunch, t-shirt, medal, and giveaways. More importantly, we give them a safe, fun environment to learn the game we all love so much.  (I believe camp shouldn’t be ran like a bootcamp, but it also shouldn’t be a place to just play games all day.  We try to find the balance.  Teaching with passion, but also having fun!)
