    My daughter came back confident

    "My daughter came back confident and excited to show me her new technique for fielding grounders and fly balls. I saw an improvement. She also now has ability and confidence to slide. Also she enjoyed learning new drills and liked the assessment at the end because it has given her goals to improve upon."

    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!!"
