    Awesome camp

    August 10, 2017: My daughter had an amazing time at this camp. She really enjoyed Guts. It was an awesome camp. My daughter came home each day telling us how much she learned and how much fun she had at the camp during the week. Really enjoyed learning how to bunt a different way.

    Coach Welsh was amazing

    August 7, 2017: Coach Welsh was amazing in so many ways. She was motivating, professional, friendly and my daughter found her passion for softball once again. The weather was not co-operating at the start of the camp and Coach Welsh didn't bat an eyelid just made alternate arrangements and put in extra time on Thursday to accommodate those who could not make the extra day she added on Friday. I was extremely impressed with the organization and all the camp staff.

    feel more confident

    July 5, 2017: The counselors were nice and friendly and took the time to remember everyone's name. We learned a lot everyday, like diving, catching the ball the right way, how to position yourself for grounders. They gave us a lot of breaks which gave me time to rest a little bit and then get going again. I feel like I improved a lot in my pitching and hitting and I feel more confident. Thank you for all that you did to make the camp great!!

    They really care

    July 5, 2017: Coaches were very attentive, knowledgeable and their methods of instruction were excellent. My daughter has attended several similar camps in Florida. This was by far her favorite. Coaches were very instrumental in their methods to motivate the athletes to perform, train hard and realize the potential that they have within themselves. She can't wait for the next camp and actually didn't want to come home after bonding with her room mates and Coaches. Not just a number at this Camp....they really care about you.

    It was a camp I'll never forget.

    At the camp I loved being able to stay in the dorm rooms and make new friends. It was a college experience. I liked how each day was something new. At all of the stations we not only learned new drills, but we had fun. Some drills were made into games and competitions which kept everyone engaged. Everyone at the camp, all the leaders/coaches and players were all so nice and open to help. It was a camp I'll never forget.

    Thanks for teaching me ways to improve my game

    "I wanted to personally thank Coach Welsh for all the time and instruction she provided me at camp this past week! I learned so much and I am excited to apply my new knowledge to the field. I love her coaching style and the attention she gives each and every player. Thanks for teaching me ways to improve my game, as well as ways to improve my life and relationships with others."

    I love Coach Welsh's coaching style

    "Camp this past week was great and I love Coach Welsh's coaching style! I've learned so much over the camp and I'm so blessed I got to be apart of it as well."

    Coach Welsh impacted my life

    "I appreciated how Coach Welsh came to watch my team and other players as well.  I also wanted to thank her for her time at camp and how she helped me grow not only as a player but as an individual as well. The reason I smile so much is because I always have something to be thankful for and I am continued to be blessed everyday so why not enjoy this precious life and express my gratefulness through a smile . Also, one thing that really stood out to me about Coach Welsh was that she treated everyone as a person first, then an athlete and she was "all there" whether it was engaging in a conversation or running a drill which lead me to grow a lot of respect for her. Although I was only with her for a few days I could already tell that she was a one of a kind coach and was going to positively impact her players' performance on the field but also off the field as a student, daughter, sister, and individual and when you go, "you go all out." So I just wanted to thank her and tell her that I appreciate how she continue to impact players lives. "

    Honest assessments 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."

    The Nike Softball Camp at Southeastern University was most fun I've ever had!

    "The NIKE Softball Camp at Southeastern University was most fun I've ever had! The instructors were extremely helpful and I never once saw one of them get down. They were always willing to be there for any extra help. I will most definitely be back next year!

    By the end of the camp my daughter didn’t want to come home.

    "This was my daughter’s first overnight camp. So she was a little home sick her first night. The camp counselors/coaches made her feel at home. They allowed her to call us at anytime. Needless to say by the end of the camp she didn’t want to come home. She is looking forward to next year with all her friends she made at the camp. Thank you for everything."
