What Sets Our Camp Apart? Appreciation: From the registration process to the last spike, we want to show you and your players our appreciation for your choice of our camp. We pledge to you that we will run our camp to the highest level of efficiency in terms of organization and communication as possible.
Fun: Camp has to be fun. We strive to build an atmosphere that is friendly and full of activities that both coaches and players will enjoy. We like to see smiles at our camps.
Productive: We work hard at hiring the best officials possible and building a competitive schedule for your team. Our camp is no different than your team; we never stay the same, we are either working hard to improve or we are regressing. This will be our 26th year of running camps and we intend for it to be the best.
Camp Philosophy: We began the Licking Summer Camps 26 years ago because we as coaches were tired of paying what we thought were outrageous fees to college coaches for camps that were poorly run. We felt we could do a better job at a much lower price. Now, twenty-five years later, we still feel the same.
Our camp is designed to provide you and your players an inexpensive, organized and competitive setting for off-season improvement.
We work hard to schedule you against teams of equal ability. It does a team no good to come to a summer camp and win every match easily, nor is it a benefit to your teams’ development to lose every match by a wide margin.
