Julie Brzezinski

Julie Brzezinski enters her 16th season as Fairfield University’s head softball coach, having taken over the program in the spring of 1998.  During her 15 years at the helm, the Stags averaged 28 wins per season, advanced to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament 11 times, and posted seven winning campaigns.

The Stags captured the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular-season title in four of the last eight seasons.  She was named MAAC coach of the year in 2011, the third time she collected that honor (2002, 2004).

The New Jersey native is the fifth head coach in Fairfield University softball history.  Before her arrival, the school record for wins in a season was 29, a total she has equaled or surpassed nine times in 15 campaigns.  Brzezinski owns a 422-393-5 record at Fairfield, which includes last year’s 31-27 slate.  She earned her 300th Fairfield victory in a win against Siena during the 2008 season (April 5) and her 400th victory against Youngstown State.

Overall, her 600th career win came at home against Siena during the 2010 season. Her 500th career win was against Long Island University in March, 2006. Her 400th win came against Bucknell, a 7-2 decision during the team’s Florida trip in the 2003 season.  Brzezinski’s 300th career win came in the 2000 regular-season finale, a 2-1 victory over Princeton.

I hope to go back every year

"The camp was very well-planned out and had a good program. The times to wakeup eat and play were reasonable and the instructors knew exactly what they were doing and taught the campers in an easy-to-understand way. I hope to go back every year!"

The NIKE camp at Fairfield was amazing!

"The NIKE camp at Fairfield was AMAZING! The camp far exceeded our expectations and I will recommend several of the conditioning drills to my Varsity coach so my High School team can benefit from them as well. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING EXPERIENCE!"

Taught my daughter softball and about being a fine young lady

"I cannot put into words the experience my daughter gained from going to the camp. She not only learned skills in softball but how to be a better young lady. The morals and values the staff brought to the camp were extraordinary. We looked at sending her to another camp and decided on the NIKE Camp for convenience and I am so glad we did. She was going to be a day camper but when we got there she saw some friends and we were able to change her to be an overnight camper. I will highly recommend this camp to anyone who is interested in gaining skills and personal growth. We look forward to next year!!"
