Athlete Testimonials

"Getting to see different types of skills and meeting new people being able to connect in a way I never thought I could and learning new skills along the way"

"I liked learning and refining defensive skills but I really liked how we were encouraged to learn. With skills like defense its really easy to make a mistake and get caught up in it, but the time we had learning mental skills helped us be more supportive of each other and moving past and learning through the mistakes."

"Meeting new players and coaches. Playing with different players and adjusting to their play style. As well as experiencing how new coaches teach new skills."

It is advised that athletes attend all camps wherever possible to maximize their development, as well as their connection to the programme, the coaches and their peers.
