"I want to thank you so much for running an exceptional camp. You provided her with the skills needed to be selected for the All Star team at the New England Premier Field Hockey showcase at UNH this past weekend! She was the only incoming sophomore selected! Thank you again and she will be there next year."

" I want to tell you how impressed I was with the way you ran your goalie camp.
The players were always active, and working on meaningful things, no standing around. For a camp where you had them constantly working they had a great deal of fun! I loved the idea of having the coach the last night speak to the girls about the mental aspect of the game, which is so overlooked in sports. You and your coaches had a wonderful rapport with the athletes, everything came across in a positive way, even when correcting them on their faults.
Thanks again, and keep doing what you are doing."
- Father of 2012 GKA Participant
"I was extremely impressed with how much she learned in just 6 nights with Coach Cahill and her staff. The personal instruction, the many drills, and real-game scenarios when mixed in with the field players. Although there are other camps/clinics
offered by other colleges, the Goalkeeping Academy at BC is head and shoulders above them all. There¹s not even a close second."

"What a great experience the camp was for our daughter. She felt she learned a great deal, was very positive about it and thought it was fun. Lauren feels that much more confident about playing as a goalie next year, which is a success in and of itself. Thank You. "
