I really enjoyed coaching at the USJDP Junior Prep Camp this past summer. A week at the camp provided me an incredible opportunity to work with a great group of players day-in and day-out, allowing me to get to know each of them individually. In the process I learned about their strengths, weaknesses, coachability, work ethic, maturity levels, and overall skill sets. It was a great experience for me as a coach to get to know these players personally, and not just as a jersey number.

The boys really enjoyed USJPD! I recognize the involvement and the time of all the coaches during games. Even if they were not coaching a team, they were sitting in the stands watching. It felt like they were all so dedicated and involved. Hope you know how much it is appreciated by the parents; especially going on week 2, YOU put in a lot of great energy and time! Thank you! It is a great program and the boys said they worked really hard. It was busy enough they felt like the 6 days, were three days…and went by so fast. Kyle will be back next summer for his 3rd year and most likely his friend, Aidan as well.

I had a great time coming to the USJDP camp in Denver this summer. I had a great time learning from Coach Paris who I believe is one of the greatest coaches that I've worked with throughout my career. I met new people from across the country and throughout the world and made some good friendships. I also loved the hard work that we had topiut in... all drills to make us better players. The coaches all gave me good advice which helped me to develop as a player, and as a young adult.
