My Confidence & Swing Are Better Than Ever!

"I want to say THANK YOU to both Coach LeeAnn and Cheryl for improving my swing! After attending their camp, my swing has become more consistent and my confidence is better than ever. My tryouts went so well that I secured a spot on the 18U team, after playing 14U last year. Thank you so much! I know I wouldn't have been able to accomplish that, had it not been for the training with you guys this summer. I can't wait to come back next year!"

The NIKE Softball Camp gave my daughter a passion for life!

"This was our daughter's first Nike camp experience and we can't begin to tell you how pleased we are and how much she enjoyed herself. We had a two and a half drive home in which her camp experience was the conversation all the way home. Her first practice with her team after camp showed a noticeable improvement. It wasn't just an improvement of skills, but of attitude, a passion and desire to "Be That Girl". I think this has given her something that will grow with her in life as her life's motto. She can't wait for her next camp experience. Thank you for an amazing staff and the readiness you all showed to teach our young the love of a game that translates into a passion for life!"

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!"
