“I went to the practice last Sunday. While doing the practice drills, the coaches would cheer loudly after the kids made a play. The coaches would then pick the child up in the air over their heads and carry them back to the starting line. The kids ate it up and I’m sure they felt like they’d made the game winning Superbowl play.” – Jenny G, 2018 camps parent
