    Nothing could make this camp better

    July 18, 2017: Positive atmosphere, enthusiastic coaches. Character development came before softball. Coaches focused on how to be a good teammate. Olympics were a hit. End of camp evaluation was helpful. My daughter has nothing that could make Camp better.

    Fantastic staff

    Leeann & her staff were fantastic. They made my daughter feel very comfortable & secure in her first time away from home. My daughter’s main coach Jo (Jessica) was a tremendous influence on her & helped her with confidence & skills building. I can't wait to have her go again. Dorm accommodations were nice & clean & campus was easy to navigate

    Our daughter could not stop talking about camp

    This was my daughter's first sleep over camp. When we went to pick her up she was sad it was over and asked if she could attend next year. She talked a lot about what she learned and showed us at the same time

    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!"

    The NIKE Softball Camp gave my daughter a passion for life!

    "This was our daughter's first Nike camp experience and we can't begin to tell you how pleased we are and how much she enjoyed herself. We had a two and a half drive home in which her camp experience was the conversation all the way home. Her first practice with her team after camp showed a noticeable improvement. It wasn't just an improvement of skills, but of attitude, a passion and desire to "Be That Girl". I think this has given her something that will grow with her in life as her life's motto. She can't wait for her next camp experience. Thank you for an amazing staff and the readiness you all showed to teach our young the love of a game that translates into a passion for life!"

    Coach Taylor's Positive Energy, Leadership, Strength, and Character are an Inspiration to our Daughters

    "My daughter, learned a lot from the NIKE Softball Camp Director, LeeAnn Taylor and her coaches - not just softball skills, but life skills and how to think like a winner. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. Coach Taylor's positive energy, leadership, strength, and character are an inspiration to our daughters and to us parents, too. I hope she goes on coaching for a long time. She makes this world a better, brighter place. We appreciate her and all she does! Hope to see you 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!"
