Honest assessment of my skills

"I've been playing competitive travel softball for five years now yet I felt the coaches at this camp helped me improve my game in many ways. They showed me where I needed improvement and were very honest in their assessments of my skills. They recommended coaches to help me continue to improve after the camp - and I really appreciate that."

Parent

Well worth the money!

"I enjoyed to listen to all the Coaches talk and explain drills and the reasoning behind them to the girls in a manner which to campers stayed focused and eager to jump into the drills. My daughter loves to know the right way and I love the fact that the coaches here were willing to share all and any knowledge they could to make these campers the best they can be. Thanks so much for a positive clinic experience, well worth the money."
