About Ben Reetz

Most memorable ELITEAM moment-
Whenever I see a camper reach a goal, or overcome an obstacle that they didn’t think was possible. That is always something that sticks with me.

What I’ve learned from my sport-
The hard work you put in when no one is watching is what makes the biggest difference.
