Our History

It has been truly amazing that since our boot camp inception in 2016 we have only depended upon "Word of Mouth" as it’s main source of advertising. Many thanks to all of our hundreds of satisfied customers who have come from all 50 states to attend our camps. We have grown from one 48 player camp to four 64 player camps. In 2020, we had the largest camp in the America with 192 players and 24 Pro’s and still had a 50 player waiting list. Due to it’s popularity with are now offering 2 camps in May and 2 camps in September each year, all at the Montreat Conference Center in North Carolina.
