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!

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."
