My middle daughter is lucky to have Brian Rooney as her soccer coach so I can personally vouch for how wonderful he is! She also did Garden City Soccer Camp last summer and loved it. What is really great about Garden City is that the coaches are great role models. As high school varsity players, they talk about what it took for them to get good enough to play varsity soccer and they have wonderful rapport with the kids. My daughter also appreciated the pool! After the morning session and lunch, swimming was a welcome respite from the heat and then she was ready to go for another round of soccer in the afternoon.
