The most impressive aspect for me is their commitment to the player's education. They are students first and we were reminded of this the entire tour.


The interaction and training with the coaching staff was exceptional. They have a wealth of knowledge and are eager to work with the players


The UDA Summer Tour was very eye opening and I thank the incredible staff for such an amazing experience. Seamus and Joel are the best!".
