Our Team

Our Staff is the “Heart of our Programs” and are personally handpicked for their knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for teaching. They all have a strong background in sports and more importantly a love for kids! We look for an ability to connect with kids in an encouraging and inspiring way. All camp coaches and staff must complete and pass our training programs and background check prior to working with your kids. Our directors and your children evaluate and grade our coaches every week!
