Helen August 2019
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the experiences that you gave my son last week. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and only had positive things to say about the whole week. It’s also lovely to hear that you would be happy for him to be one of your helpers next year if the opportunity arose. Also from a parents point of view, thank you for communicating everything so efficiently. You made the whole process of sending him away for the week an easy one!

He's come home enthused about running generally, and has some great ideas to add to his training regime. I know he's attended for the last 3 years, and enjoyed every year, but for some reason, this year, more so in particular.
So a huge thank you to you and the team, and we hope to see you again next year.

Once again thank you very much to you and the other coaches who made it a great week, I hope I can come back next year.
Ben Willison August 2017
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you, Ben and all the team for the amazing week on the Young Athlete Training Camp. My son Ben Willison came home so positive and enthusiastic, he hasn’t stopped talking about it.
He has been showing us all the exercises in the strength and conditioning and mobility. We have also found that he’s eating a lot better. He found the nutrition talk really interesting and is now lecturing us on all the right proteins to eat etc.
Thank you once again to the whole team. Ben is looking forward to next year already.
Emily Chong August 2017
Many thanks for last week, Emily enjoyed it immensely. She is still buzzing and wants to return next year! She made quite a few friends whilst there and based on their feedback, it would appear that all of the other participants enjoyed the camp also. It’s a great testament to you and the rest of the coaching team to be able to keep 80 teenagers occupied and happy for a week, well done! Please pass on our gratitude and thanks to the rest of the coaching team and Emily will hopefully see you again next year.
Harry and Emily Cocking August 2017
