We sure didn’t let a few extra snow days keep us down. Our annual summer International Pro camp was once again a huge success, highlighted by a visit and coaching from 2 female Juventus players. We ran a 1 day clinic this year and a great time was had by all… from our little tiny tots to our high schoolers. Everyone was given the great opportunity to learn from our international staff made up of college, former professional and semi professional players from different countries.
