There are so many health concerns with young athletes, but Ashland caters to all, giving them balanced options and a very wide variety of quality food.'" Allison KocheffAmherst-Steele
"'The UCA camp at Ashland University provided my cheerleaders with instruction that was challenging, yet fun, and immediately incorporated into our home material! The facilities were clean and conveniently located!'" Laura WilhiteCopley High School
