“What a great experience…coming together with athletes and coaches from all across the country. Watching athletes get closer as a team in only a few short days is fun to watch. This is the same thing that happens on the college campus as college athletes. This is a good snapshot of what traveling is like at the college level, without the sand and the beaches of course.”
