What people are saying about Connecticut Juniors.....

I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you and all of the staff who helped to make this past week such a great experience for my daughter Emma. While I only had a limited opportunity to observe first-hand, what I did see of the instruction and the structure of the week was first-rate. More importantly, the confidence that grew in Emma over the week, as evidenced in her nearly ceaseless talk about the camp, is a testament to the supportive and educational environment you created. Emma is more excited now than ever about the upcoming high school season....sincerest thanks for a great week.
-Peter Gailey, President & Co-founder
OR-Live, Inc.

I cannot begin to say enough great things about CT Juniors! An experienced coaching staff with a positive attitude, endless energy and passion for the game has made all the difference for our daughter. Your instruction taught Kate the fine points of playing her position, mastering her serve, and developing a sense of where to be on the court offensively and defensively. Your program instilled both the skills and the confidence in Kate, who after playing just one year in middle school, has had 3 great years on the Choate Varsity Team and will be the Captain in the 2011 season! Thank you.
Janine Hodgson, Guilford, CT
