“Watching the evolution of the players and their knowledge of the game is just awesome,” said Platinum division coach Alex Stuart, “These kids are serious about learning the game while still having fun.”

Several players were recognized during and after camp for their tremendous efforts.  Two of them are hi-lighted below:

IMG_5490AINSLEY G:  Maybe one of the hardest working players in camp so far is Ainsley.  “She plays so hard and so strong, yet she always has a smile on her face,” says Red Division Coach Joey Berlin, “You can tell she has a love to play and compete.” Ainsley is entering the 3rd grade and loves Pizza, playing soccer and coloring.
Great Job AG!
