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."

Honest Assessment of my skils

"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."

I hope to go to all of Debbie's Camps!

"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!"
