    Excellent camp with lots of instruction!

    July 21, 2018: Great teaching and love the assessment. Measuring and setting a benchmark for my child was extremely important for her development. Great job setting an environment that generated a friendly, but competitive team feeling while accounting for the different skill levels, specifically allowing appropriate work and correction for each individual.

    Worth the money!

    July 22, 2017: I would say to add to your website the number of total training hours. When I first looked at the hours each day I thought it was too much $$ for 2 full days and 2 half days. Added up, it is 40 hours. Folks may think differently if posed this way and find it to be worth the $$. Just my observation.

    Had fun making new friends and playing softball all week

    July 21, 2017: My favorite portion of the camp were the games, where we got to play by the official rules against teams but also simultaneously received instruction from the staff. The camp was very organized and educational, and also fun. It was easy to make new friends while improving softball skills throughout the week.
