    In my opinion, I think one would improve more by getting private lessons in the place of going to camp, and playing in tournaments. I went to Weil Academy for a week, and it didn't help that much. I think private lessons and competitive playing is a lot better.

    yea i went to the offense-defense camp last year. Its a pretty nice place, wicked good food, nice enough dorms. Unfortunately, i played wicked bad at the original tryout thing and got put in the "above-average" group which i completley owned all week, in those groups they dont push you very hard and i could basically goof off and still be the best. In the tournament at the end i got put in the advanced group tournament and did pretty well beating a couple kids in the advanced groups but i wish they had put me in their to begin with. Anyway, i have to go, i'll post a full review later
