"The Academic Camp has become a must attend recruiting event for us and all highly-selective colleges and universities in the country."

“Please do whatever you have to do to keep this going. We coaches need an event like this to find the players we want to recruit. You really have something here. Thank you.”
Liberty League Head Coach
“The Academic Camp is a must attend event for any coach at a top academic school…any player who wants to be evaluated by the top academic schools needs to be at this event!”
UAA Head Coach
“Your camp was amazing. Every player was at the level we need them to be. They are all recruits for me. Nowhere else I have been can I say that; this was the best time I could have spent.”
