"This has provided me a great opportunity to develop further as a volleyball coach and learn from other experienced coaches over the past 6 summers. I believe that at the Legion Athletic Camp, all athletes have an opportunity to learn, have fun and make many friendships along the way. I look forward to coaching your athlete this summer!"
