I attended camp Pass Set Crush for two years, starting in 2001, all the way from Montreal, Canada. It was such a great way to meet new friends and this is where my love for volleyball started. The skills I learned from that first year at camp helped me make it on my high school volleyball team the following year. Eventually I became a co-captain and MVP on my team. I went on to play volleyball at McGill University as well as play for the Quebec provincial team for several years. I became the McGill team MVP, and I made it on the First All-Canadian team when we went to Nationals during my senior year. I will now be spending a year training as a carded athlete at the Canadian Full-time Training Center in Winnipeg with the Team Canada coach in the hopes of making it on the Canadian National Team in the future.
Dear Coach Forge, Thanks sooo much for getting me into this camp. It was so much fun & I learned a ton. I felt so out of place when I first came but everyone was so friendly so I quickly made tons of friends. I had so much fun here & you have a great program (I wish I could come next year!) Once again, thank you. You are a great coach & a nice person. Thanks. — Erin
Dear All Coaches at Pass Set Crush, Thank you for making volleyball funner than I could ever imagine. I had a great time everywhere I went. You guys pushed up to get better and I’m glad you did. You girls are awesome. I really want to thank Bristol though because you were funny in the cabin and you are very flexible with what ever we really did! — Abby
Dear Krysten, You are hilarious! You are so scary good at chubby bunny! Thanks for always making me laugh.Dear Kat,You are unbelievable! You were always cheering for us and kept our spirits up the whole week! You made me laugh and made me a better player. Thanks so much! — Brenna
Dear Coaching Staff, Throughout the past week I have become a better volleyball player. I would just like to thank you all so much for contributing to that. My experience here was great and I will not forget you guys. — Bianca
Coach Forge, Thanks for this opportunity. I will remember it forever. — Anna
Hello Coach Forge,
Dear Coach Forge, My experience at Pass Set Crush was great. I believe the coaching staff really helped me to improve my volleyball skills. I really appreciate all your hard work and effort in making this camp the best. I had lots of fun and met some great friends. I am sad to leave. I’ll miss your singing/alarm clock at six in the morning (even though I won’t miss waking up!) I’m also going to miss your great fires started with only one match and all the marshmellows/somores. Thanks again. — Colleen
Dear Coaches, Thank you soooo much! Camp was awesome. You guys helped me a lot to be a better volleyball player. Thanks for letting us stalk you for our skit even though it must have been really creepy. We all hope that you liked it a lot! I hope to see you all again. — Mary
My numero uno goal is to be a counselor someday and be as totally awesome as you guys! You guys really inspired me on the court and I don’t want to leave you. — Courtney
I wish camp wasn’t over, but it is. It’s very sad that I have to go because this is my last year. I hope that some day I am as good as you. Thanks for everything and being so amazing. I love you all.
Karly is so looking forward to her second year at Pass Set Crush. I am sure you hear this all the time…however, we just have to say, and cannot fully express what a great experience and confidence booster your camp was for Karly last summer. It was truly a positive learning and growing experience for her, and frankly, the catalyst to her choosing volleyball over soccer!
Hi Joan. It was great to see you again. Nicole had a fantastic time and definitely wants to go again next year! In the short time Larry & I watched her, I could see her improvement both skill wise and in her leadership on the court. I’m so glad she’s coming into her own. Have a restful, quiet weekend! And thanks again for having such a GREAT camp!! — Jackie
Hi Joan, You put on such a great camp. You need to up the age group to 18 (like you have nothing better to do) — Jason
After attending Pass Set Crush last summer, Jackie and Grace tried out for the Marlborough High Freshmen Volleyball Team. They both made it. What makes this a success story is that they both made it as 8th graders (because 8th graders attend the high school in Marlborough, they qualify to play freshmen sports). What also contributes to this success story is that prior to Pass Set Crush, neither of them had any formal volleyball experience.
My daughter Rhiannon attended the first session of pass-set-crush... she had a great time and already wants to go next year... — Nancy
Again, my daughter Kathryn had a great time at camp. Thank You. — Kathy
Hi Joan, Just a quick note of thanks! The three of us had a great week at Pass Set Crush! It is a great opportunity for us and it is a fantastic camp giving young girls a chance to be exposed not only to excellent volleyball but other fun activities! — Cindy
