" My son and I traveled from VA and were so glad we did! My son is currently the #1 freshman for hurdles in the state of VA but he learned so much from you and your staff!! He's putting it all into action! I enjoyed being able to watch his progress from day one to two; wow! The coach / athlete ratio was perfect! Again, thanks to you and your staff for your dedication!" -Andrea Yager
