Coach Hahn came to camp and spoke this week to our campers about having a dream. "It is okay to visualize your dream, but you have to work at it. You have to put in the work. The guy that becomes really good, ALWAYS works at his game."-Billy Hahn. He values the players that work hard, whether that is working outside on the street or in a gym. He showed the campers some drills that the campers could do on their own to become a better player.
