"The entire coaching staff is awesome, the people who come to the Vail camp are awesome, it is like seeing your family. I have actually been thinking about quitting playing. It hasn't been fun as of late, but this camp really helped me find the fun in the sport again. This is in addition to the new skills I learned which are also invaluable." - Samantha P. - Vail 2014 & 2015
“Coaches are right there when you're not getting it. And, just as important, they will challenge you more if you are getting it. Explanations really make sense. You will definitely leave this camp with more knowledge than you even realize. Warning, those Ah-Ha moments can pop up any time or any place!” – Deke D. - Vail 2015 & 2012
“I liked the fact that the camp focused on skills with a lot of skating and minimal scrimmage time. Being a beginner, I especially appreciated the individual attention which really helped me begin to feel things like outside edges, getting low, extending my legs to get a full stride, etc. All the little individual pointers and critiques were extremely helpful for me. Without that, I would have been lost. The coaches were awesome. They made me feel comfortable both on and off the ice. I was impressed with their constant attention to each individual's needs and their willingness to give one-on-one help when needed. They gave encouragement, direction, and had a sense of humor.” – Marilyn S. – Vail 2015
