“….and kudos to you for an awesome job last weekend.  Teaching our girls to be diplomatic, but assertive off the field is a valuable lesson.  Thanks for all you do!”

“… .I have been so impressed with the quality of coaches you….have recruited into the QCS program.  Great role models….It is a really difficult balance but you guys have navigated it really well. Bottom Line – we feel very fortunate to have QCS here in Charlotte.”

“PS  I have had many coaches in my life and I want to assure you that your passion, patience, and leadership are unmatched!  You are an inspiration out there.”

“Thank you for your great program and for the opportunity you’ve provided…these past couple years.  Between four kids and all their sports, we have been exposed to many different types of coaches and programs.  All have been good role models for our kids.  However, your program stands out in almost every aspect.  Your coaches are demanding yet positive, serious about their sport yet fun and fair. Also, they create an environment in which the girls are not afraid to make mistakes as they learn. This fosters much better decision-making during games and recovery from mistakes….Most importantly, in this highly competitive environment of youth sports where individual skills seem to be rewareded almost exclusively in other programs, your program also emphasizes teamwork and sportsmanship”

“I cannot thank you enough for finding….college…..She is so HAPPY!  And therefore I slept so well last night…..She has really bonded with her teammates and considers the other freshmen players her best friends.  She said that she loves taking classes she wants to take and thinks studying and being in those classes is fun.  She also said that she cannot imagine herself anywhere else….I just can’t thank you specifically for suggesting (college) and all of her coaches for preparing her for the next step….Thanks a million!!!”

“….had to do a project for school on her hero. She chose her QCS coach because they inspire her and they taught her to give 110% on the field. She went on to say how they help her if she does something wrong. She wrapped it up with how she looks up to her.”
