I would just like to thank you for helping me, or I may speak for everyone, us. It was a pleasure to have you and the assistants here. We definitely enjoyed the company and guidance...from all of you.

We were glad to have you here helping our girls become better players and athletes.

Thanks for everything. It was really nice to meet you and Shannon and Devyn, and I hope to see you guys somewhere in my volleyball future. I hope you enjoyed coaching the camp as much as I know everybody enjoyed having you. in my volleyball future. I hope you enjoyed coaching the camp as much as I know everybody enjoyed having you.!

I was just writing to say how much I enjoyed the camp. It was nice how the different levels of players were split up on the courts, but we still got to interact with each other and meet new people. 

I really appreciated that you made us do a lot of drills that involved doing hand digs. I feel that I've never been a good setter and I'm always scared to take balls with my hands, but after camp I'm completely comfortable with it. The newly acquired skill will definitely help in the upcoming season. Another thing I really liked was the level of intensity that you helped bring to our courts. The tournament on the last day was especially fun,

i was on the youngest group. and i am going to be a freshman in high school! i really do hope i make the team! i just wanted to thank you for everything you put into this camp making it possible! i had a great time! and it was great to keep on practicing my skills!! i will try to email my coaches from the camp too!    thanks again!

My daughter couldn't say enough about how great a coach you were. It was the best camp she had participated in so far. The drills were very helpful and it also gave her a chance to reconnect with the team players after the summer. She is really looking forward to volleyball again this year and it does my heart good to see her so passionate about something! Take care and I hope you can make it back next year.
