“This camp allowed me to get exposure to a good amount of college coaches. The coach to number of players ratio allowed every player to get notice and help whenever needed. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone serious about playing college soccer because it allows you to get up close and personal with a good coaching staff.”

“The standard of football here was amazing and the standard of coaching was fantastic also. I learned so much and met a lot of nice people who I am now good friends with. There is enough downtime to allow for our training and matches. I would like to thank everyone who helped make this happen. Best experience of my life!”
