We pride ourselves in quality athletic instruction on fantastic facilities with the best equipment. Every camper is on a league team and will have an opportunity to improve their game through direct instruction and competitive play. While winning is great, sportsmanship and teamwork are two key components of the Saginaw athletic program. We believe that it is important to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment and, of course, to try your best!
