Camp Details

"WE want our student/athletes to come away with the mind set that it is going to take 10,000 hours of hard work and determination to reach the level of play that each athlete desires to perform at.  They need to know that the effort they put in is congruent to where they want to go.  We will provide an experience that shows what it means and “how it feels”, to earn your wings to fly toward their goals, dreams, and aspirations. We will help student/athletes by providing necessary skills, tips, and drills that will help them on their journey.  We will incorporate and instill positive self esteem, positive work ethic, and positive communication. We will show through collaboration that cooperative coaching environments that are inclusive empowers and inspires others to do better." - Coach Robin Penoyer

    The wonderful encouragement I received at this camp has made me want to try out for softball at school again next spring

    "After years of being overlooked by softball coaches it was very encouraging to hear from people who know what they are talking about, that I really do have a talent for softball. The wonderful encouragement I received at this camp has made me want to try out for softball at school again next spring. Hopefully the coaches at school will recognize my talents and be willing to work with me. Thanks for all the help and encouragement."

    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."
