Is there a difference between Thunderbird/Greenway/Washington High or Williams/Higley Field High?
No. We simply maintain those locations so that the kids have enough space to practice and get a lot of court time. Some kids will stay and play at the main gym while other kids will be bussed to other schools and back throughout the camp. Campers will always need to be dropped off and picked up at Thunderbird High for the NW Valley Camp and Williams Field for the SE Valley Camp.
