"Best soccer camp my son attends! Extremely professional, knowledgeable, fun. Great with the kids."
"Finally ~ we found a camp that shares our daughter's passion for soccer! The homework is a GREAT idea. It reinforced what she learned and provided an opportunity for her to share with us. You guys did a great job of teaching/coaching while making it FUN!"
"Great camp. I'd highly recommend Camp to parents of children at any athletic level. All will be challenged. I also really appreciate the emphasis placed on TEAM work and the review of skills/concepts learned at the end of each day."
... Just wanted to tell you that your training was a great opportunity
for XXXXXX. Everyone noticed a huge improvement. We attended the
Independence Middle School Fall Sports reception and XXXXX received
Defensive MVP 2009. They called her a new machine. Her coach said she
was really impressed with her style, technique and overall kicking
ability. She played every game this season and played the entire game.
She really did an excellent job this school year.
"I just wanted to let you know how highly we thought of Coach Petersen. He was great with Keli and Kyle and I really feel they learned a lot from him and that their game has improved. Keli's high school coach commented that "he could tell she has been working on her game." They both just recently excelled in their school basketball tryouts. Keli made the varsity basketball team at Bethel High School where she just started 9th grade. Kyle made his middle school team at PMS - there were 60 boys trying out and he made the cut of 12. I know a lot of it has to do with the training he got at 3D..." -G.Foster, parent
"We did another camp last year, but your coaches are more mature, detail oriented, and caring. We are impressed and hoping to return next summer."
"It was the best camp I have ever been to." | "He loved this camp - wanted it to last longer!"
" .... I cannot say enough good things about Coach Alden, Coach Stephanie, and Coach Allen. They were friendly, professional, very knowledgeable, and best of all, fantastic with the kids. Because of the coaches, we will definitely be back next year."
"Caityln said that Coach Ben was a great coach...its the best soccer thing that she's ever had. As I watched his group, he was always instructing, teaching, interacting, talking with them... Thank you so much for a great camp! It was very organized and just a great experience all around."
"This was a really positive experience for our child. She is not overly coordinated and the coaches encouraged her to try every skill - even those she was unsure about and gave praise after ever attempt."
"Ryan truly did an outstanding job. He was competent, personable, and able to positively manage & teach a very energetic group of children. It is not often that someone personally excels in athletic ability while also having the ability to break down the skills and challenge others, at their individual level, AND maintain discipline in a fair and consistent manner."
"Coach was awesome! enthusiastic, informative, and GREAT with kids!"
"Thank you! You were great for increasing self esteem and self confidence."
"We were very pleased with the camp. The boys were challenged and learned through play rather than tedious drills. We will defenatly be back next year!"
"First camp my kids have repeatedly asked to do again - the loved it!"
"The camp was awesome! Blaine had a great time. The coaches are knowledgeable, patient, and enthusiastic!"
"This was an excellent camp for my 8 year old daughter. Her enthusiasm increased for the sport as well as her skills... Bravo for the value, the cost is more than reasonable."
"Coach Alden was great! he had a great way of encouraging the kids to do their best, even when they were tired or obstinate... I feel my son was able to learn and practice lots of skills."
You have done a fantastic job with building 3D over the past several years. 3D is well-known and has a strong, positive reputation on the Peninsula. The level of organization, communication and attention to detail with which you operate 3D is exceptional. There are no unanswered questions and the outcomes of your programs always exceed expectations.

Thank you! I wish you could see him on the field he has more confidence and he is not scared to go to the ball that was the problem we had. I must say he is really a beast on the field now. Every time someone tells me how much better he is I tell them he trained with 3D.
Good afternoon, My name is xxxxx and I coach the xxxxx academy team.... I wanted to send a quick email thanking you for your work with one of my players. I have seen a drastic improvement in his technical game and physique over the past 6-8 months. I'm sure you know, he's a great kid with an excellent work ethic and that's the main reason he's developing so quickly. But I also know, that as a coach sometimes it is good to hear that you are making an impact, and you certainly are. Thanks again for your time, dedication, and work.
Just wanted to drop a line and say thank you for the work that you have done with xxxxxx. She started indoor this past weekend and I could see an immediate improvement in her game. She seems to be more aggressive and sure of her self when going after a ball or player.
I have had all of my sons in camps with the 3D family over the years starting with my now 21 year old when he was XXXX's age! They are exceptional people and have a really great facility (on Dare Rd). I cannot recommend them highly enough.
I just wanted to thank you for all the help you gave my son last year. He was in your conditioning class and soccer basics I think you called it. .... I don't know if you will remember him but he was the most clutzy, slow, behind in everything in your classes. Anyway, we have moved to Maryland. He had his first game, and he actually scored a "hat trick" in the game. I know it was from all the work you did with him and the classes he attended. He scores at least 1 goal per game. Thanks so much for all that you have done.
I just wanted to drop you a little note to let you know how much XXXXX is enjoying the Grasshopper camp this week. Her Camp coach XXXXX is doing a great job keeping everyone involved and excited. ...She's already learned more fun drills in 2 days than she has in a whole season of rec. soccer. ...Thank you for a great camp experience!
I want you to know how much both we appreciated having you to help us through those "soccer" years. You were great for XXXXX and for his confidence. THANK YOU. Please know I will always appreciate and be thankful for you because of what you contributed to my child at a time we needed your guidance and the opportunities your program offered. I "really" mean this.
My wife and I could not be happier with your program and your instructors. We have been VERY pleased with everyone we have come in contact with and our son is excited to come and participate.
"My daughter attended a total of 3 soccer camps this summer. My husband asked her which camp she liked best. 'Hands down, 3D' she said... I came to 'graduation' on the last day and was quite impressed with the way the coaches celebrated each child for their uniqueness. The children are obviously treated fairly and are given positive instruction and feedback."
"Before 3D Camp I'd spent twice as much money on another camp and when it ended my daughter was about ready to give up on soccer, when she had been so excited to play the sport. That camp, aside from not teaching her important fundamentals of the game, did no place any emphasis on 'attitude' or 'teamwork'. I was so impressed with the time 3D coaches spent encouraging the kids, really teaching them the game, and making it fun at the same time. Thank you, my daughter loves soccer again."
"We did UK Camp last summer and there was no comparison! He didn't learn any skills last summer and barely even played. Garren has loved 3D Camp and has been very excited to show us all that he has learned."
"This is the first soccer camp that my son could not get enough of. He really bonded with Coach Kelly and wants to do it again and again. CJ's words: Its really, really, really fun."
"Had a fabulous time! My confidence has been boosted a lot. I think I've improved very much from the camp."
"My son does not usually enjoy camps; they seem either too disorganized or to regimented. He REALLY enjoyed the balance you achieved and came away obviously improved with soccer knowledge and skills."
"Ericka went to Va. Tech camp the last two years but she learned more and had more fun at your camp!"
"I enjoyed watching the coaches interacting with the kids. They were patient, kind, and encouraging. Nothing was negative. Kids enjoyed games while learning techniques."
"Thank you for an awesome camp! Well run; Very organized; Great atmosphere!"
"We only have experience with one other soccer camp. You were better organized, better prepared, did more variety of things, and the kids as a whole seemed more motivated, excited, and learned more than the other camp."
"Terrence attended 4 camps this summer and this was his favorite. A very organized and structured camp. We will definitely be back!"
"What a great first experience of soccer! The coach was brilliant!"
"Alexis really enjoyed this camp experience. All she talked about from the time woke up till she want to bed was soccer camp and all the new things she learned .... She even wanted to keep practicing what she learned when she got home - what kid do you know that wants to keep going after being in the sun and in cleats for 6 hours?! The only complaint we have about the camp is - It should have been longer! We loved it!!!"
"Very professionally run. I would recommend it to other parents."
"My son had the best time! He learned so many techniques and your camp has so many extra learning opportunities."
"Camp has taught Bergen the skills and confidence he needs to play on his rec. league. He enjoys it and feels like he has accomplished something in comparison to his rec. league. Thanks"
"It was a fun experience that helped me to improve my game. The coaches know the sport and provide great encouragement."
"This camp was very organized, from the organization of students to the schedule of daily instructional skills. My children were first time players and the camp was very beneficial to 'newbies'."
"My daughter totally enjoys your camp. This is the 3rd summer, as well as indoor training, she has been to. There is a great focus on technical skills as well as fun games."
"The camp was awesome, great coaches. I would highly recommend to anyone searching for a soccer camp. We plan on returning next year!"
"Jackson learned a lot of new soccer skills. Thanks for all your hard work in helping him!"
"I was so impressed with this camp and all the coaching staff, especially Coach Kim! Ford enjoyed this past week so much and is ready to come back next year. He learned new skills and, most importantly, I saw his confidence on the field grow leaps and bounds... Thank you, Kelly and Kim!"
"Thank you so much. My husband and I don't know soccer so you have been a great tool for my son to learn this sport."
"This is very first time for both children. Very well organized. Very well managed - like approach taken to encourage good team work and focus on fairness and sportsmanship."
