Teams Are Welcome At All Residential Weeks!
Our Residential Weeks provide the best possible pre-season training for teams of all ages & abilities. We customize the curriculum for each team. The team coach attends the week free when accompanying their players.
The depth of knowledge of the coaches is impressive. They really understand the game and how to teach it to High School players effectively. We look at this week as the unofficial start to our Fall season. Tom Rowan, Pocono Mt. East HS, PA
