Fundamentals 1st Training Camp was created after noticing the lack of fundamentals being taught in today's game. A lot of students are brought onto teams based on their self acquired talent. With how fast paced the school season is, often times, there is no time to train students on the fundamentals of the game.
Fundamentals 1st Training Camp ensures that students get the adequate training, confidences, and practice that they need in order to succeed. Together husband and wife duo Kevin and Reggen Melson, and Quentin Mitchell are working to equip students with the fundamentals, first!
