"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 PenoyerShow Less See More Camp Details

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Added new pitches to her arsenal
She learned how to properly execute the drop and screwball, adding to her arsenal of pitches she can utilize during her playing season. They loved the added strength/conditioning training portion but felt fielding(outfield)/batting was lightly touched. They would've liked more time on these skills.

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."
Thanks for a great experience
"The director and her staff were very positive and seemed to make all the girls love to play. This is our second time doing the camp and I would do it again. Thanks for another great experience and great memories."

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."
Gave me a vision of what my future would be as a softball player
"I loved the camp. It really gave me a vision of what my future would be as a softball player. I got a lot out of it. I'm gonna use the skills I got at softball camp all throughout my entire life of softball."
