REAL FOANS PARENTS TESTIMONIALS

"The event was amazing, start to finish. All of what you mentioned below was true from the perspective of a parent as well - really well organized, purposeful and positive. My son had a great experience - thanks for what you do, it is the template for the best of what youth athletics can be."

"I'd like to start with a glowing experience from our first FOA experience. That was the best organized, and most fun, event we've been to. Kudos to you and the team that put it together! My son is looking forward to future events."

"As always, a great event and well organized. Facility fantastic both from a player and parent perspective with tons of places to view, relax, prepare, eat, rest etc. Parking and logistics great. Also, in run up to the event superior organization as everything from the FOA was well communicated and clear. Impossible for someone to be confused. Great group of college coaches in attendance and the staff aka young guns were organized and did a good job. It's hard to herd a bunch of 20 something's and the FOA did. Super great uniforms from Pro Athletics. Great event and well done."

- JH

"As a parent just a quick note about FOANS...what an amazing event on every level, fun, learning, competition.

"You made a very large group seem small everyone got attention things moved so efficiently I am an operations Manager, so I know that something of that magnitude takes."

"Kudos and Congratulations on 11 years...here's to many, many more for you and your team!"

- MS

"The teams' commitment to putting together a quality event came through in every way."

"Not only were both events (Friday Eve/Saturday) well organized, efficiently run and well attended by talented players from around the country, but the coaching and support staff were attentive, engaged, clear in their communications, and held the boys to a high standard of sportsmanship."

"Kudos to Greg Gurenlian and Jerry Ragonese for coordinating an event that seemed equal parts competitive, leadership-developing and fun! That doesn't just happen by coincidence. You have my respect for raising the bar and leading by example! Brilliantly done."

-MM

"What an incredible experience! Thank you for all the hard work, energy, and effort you put into this event. It was well run, efficient, and managed (by a bunch of dudes too). I was so impressed and glad I provided my son with this experience. It was eye opening as to the level of athletes but more importantly, I met some of the nicest parents from across the country. I learned so much from their experiences."

"Congratulations on 11 years! I feel blessed to be a part of this community. Thanks for being a coach, mentor, and friend to my son. Thank you"
