“If my children are any indication, Your Best Shot Leadership Academy, is going to have a bright future! Both [my sons] thoroughly enjoyed their time with you on Sunday and came home with a positive can-do attitude. They are excited to work towards the goals they set in the areas of Personal Growth, Athletics and Academics. They both indicated that the games and activities “were a blast” and they want to come back for a week of camp!
As a parent, I was extremely impressed with the 5-10 minutes that I caught at the end of the session.  Phil is a dynamic teacher who has clearly much experience and wisdom to share. His interaction with the boys was exceptional and he maintained every bit of their attention (which is not an easy feat with 12 year old boys!). It is clear that he is passionate about this age children and helping them to develop the leadership and life skills that will benefit them throughout life.
I have been sharing your website with friends and will continue to spread the word that Your Best Shot Leadership Academy is the “place to be”!”
