We believe the quality of the staff determines the success of the camp. WISA staff is comprised of top, fully qualified coaches, the majority of whom hold a state or national certificate and have played the game at a high level. We also recruit the very best from overseas and they bring their expertise and new ideas to our camps. Your camper’s group head coach is a college coach or a former collegiate player who is licensed. Our player to staff ratio is 8:1, which means that each player will receive the time and attention they deserve, to develop as a player throughout the week.
