"We have worked with First Round Sports to organize the GotSkillz Campus Challenge at our school for four years. They have always provided excellent customer service as well as a fun event for the students. We don't have a lot of recreation space on our campus, so this brings an option for our students that normally don't have one. We appreciate all they do to make this event a success!" Berry C. (Guilford Tech Community College)
