Coach Alex's Reviews

  • I want to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday’s camp and learned a lot through Coach Alex and the student coach staff. I know the circumstances are strange right now with the coronavirus, but I am thankful for the good communication and hours of quality training I was able to receive yesterday. It was a very well-run camp. Thank you!
