    Helping others helped my daughter in a special and unthinkable way

    August 10, 2017: Tawni said there was a big difference in age and skill level of the campers. Wondering if 14s should be with a group closer in skill. She enjoyed helping out the young campers. It was that part that she said she actually got the most skill input. Helping them helped her. Also, not sure who the coach was that helped her with pitching, she found that extremely hempful.

    My daughter said she had a great time learning and playing

    July 26, 2017: Although my daughter had a great time, her feedback was that she had a lot of fun and perhaps learn a few things but nothing significant to say she improved on.

    What an enjoyable camp

    July 23, 2017: Both of my girls highly enjoyed the softball camp at MSU. Appreciated that as best they could the camp worked around the tournaments that our girls had that week and that even though they worked hard they still had a great time.

    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."

    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."

    My daughter learned a lot, worth the money

    My daughter is a COMP level 10U player. I think it would have been better had the coaches identified the girls with a higher skill set and broke them off to get more intense drills and instruction, especially for pitchers; and kept the beginner level girls doing other drills. For my daughter she found some of it boring because it was catering more to beginners. She did have a great time and I do think it was good for her and was worth the money and effort.

    Great staff!

    Great staff, and great head coach. My daughter had a blast. I would have liked to seen a bit more live pitching/hitting.

    Great camp and instruction but hot turf

    Instruction was great; drills were great; instructors were fun and knowledgable. The hot plastic turf field in hot sweltering July on the other hand was not so great. Next year we need real grass.

    Playing every day did help my daughter improve

    I feel my daughter did get stronger mainly because they are playing everyday. There needs to be more instruction - if they are throwing, hitting or fielding incorrectly they need to take a min and help the kids!! Ignoring and moving on isn't okay. For $300 I hope they can make this correction.
