My Daughter has more heart and motivation for the game thanks to the NIKE Softball Camp at the University of Dallas

"My daughter attended our local UDallas Nike camp in June. She is back on the field with her 10u rec team and her coach asked her why she was now the player he wanted 3 months ago. She said that she had been practicing. He said it was more than that. She was more motivated and showed more heart.

I know she is coming to the age where the average kid begins making the choice to put their heart in it or not, but I also attribute the NIKE Softball camp to giving her motivation, a renewed love for the game and more confidence. Thanks. I love to see her play and I love seeing the money well spent. Sometimes that heart is worth more than the skills she also honed and developed at camp."

This Nike Softball Camp, helped my daughter grow as an athlete and as a person

"My daughter participated in the 2012 Nike Softball Camp at Dallas University. Going into this camp, she was very nervous about what to expect, but came out a completely different person and player. I believe that this Nike Camp, helped her grow as an athlete and as a person. There aren't enough thank you's to be sent to the amazing staff that worked with each and every camper!! They helped her find a new love and appreciation for the game of softball. She is already talking about and looking forward to going back to camp next summer!!!"

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!"

Amber and her team are AWESOME!

"I went out and watched my daughter and the rest of the campers scrimmage during the NIKE Softball Camp at University of Dallas. The girls looked like a team after just 4 days. There was mutual respect, excitement, and they took the plays as they came and kept going! We are excited and already looking forward to being at returning camper! Amber and her team are awesome!!!!!"

The NIKE camp at the University of Dallas was Amazing

"The NIKE camp at the University of Dallas 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 More Softball & Being A 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!!"

Honest Assessments 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."
