This is an excellent opportunity to not only improve your skills but to work with a professional instructional staff that is well respected throughout the Southwest. You can also learn more about opportunities to play at the ‘next level’ as you prepare for the upcoming season. Unlike many of the camps in the area at this time of year, we will play games each afternoon. Phoenix area weather is in the 70’s at this time of year.
