Dear Bear, Vic and Stevie,
I just wanted to let you know that Abby was named an Academic All-Canadian this year. She was also named to the second team all conference team. Her career at King’s both academically and athletically has thus far been a huge success.
That success is in large measure attributable to your efforts. Mairi and I firmly believe that Lakeside was a formative experience for Abby in terms of her confidence and athletic development.
I am certain that Abby is only one of many young women that you have helped. I just wanted to let you know how appreciative we are of your efforts.
Thank you kindly for [inviting my daughter to the March Madness Academy]. (She) was just saying last night how she would love to sign back up again. Count her in. She enjoys working with the coaches and loves the sport. I’m so proud of her…as I didn’t know if she would take well to volleyball and I’m excited seeing how much she enjoys it.
Thank you kindly for all your coaching and support. Being a part of Lakeside has made such a big difference in my daughter’s self-esteem.

Hope you and your family are doing well. This is Christine, Megan's mom. As I read this article, I remembered the promise your made when you first met Megan at Lakeside. You said I will guarantee that Megan will get a volleyball scholarship and you meant it.
I just wanted reach out to you and say a big thank you. I really appreciate everything you have done. She is doing well and I am very proud of the progress she has made over the years.
Thanks again, I am grateful!

(Sam) absolutely loved the camp and felt that the coaches were great at helping her learn. “They know how to coach!”.
We signed her up for the August camp as she really wants to try out in September and wants to do whatever she can to be successful.
Thank you for giving her so much support. She is a really hard worker but still a little sensitive so she appreciated the positive learning atmosphere.
See you again in August!
