What Excel Meant to Me: "Since the summer of 3rd grade, basketball has been my passion, sparked by the teaching, passion, and energy that Coach Allocco's staff brings every session. Excel brings back some of my fondest memories from and most importantly helped me improve every year from elementary school through college. Excel teaches much more than skill, it teaches young people how to work together, have fun, and be special! Excel is the best camp I ever attended in my time as a basketball player. As a parent, I can’t wait for my two boys to enjoy the experience that is the summer tradition of Excel. “
