July 3, 2018: Kristina absolutely loved it , camp was held in a very nice active pace, girls didn’t get bored at all. Thank you for the experience!!! Only thing I would change I would love to have the camp at least for one whole week not for 4 days.

A lot of fun
June 29, 2018: The coaches and campers were great, and being able to practice different hits and skills was a lot of fun. Another one of my highlights was my favorite team “the wolverines” had a lot of fun playing the coaches. They did great in pushing us to do better, I’m sure every one that left camp on the last day learned something.The coaches took time to get to know you and get try and make you a better player.

June 29, 2018: Olivia had fun and enjoyed the staff and Director. The enabled her to continue practicing her sport in the summertime with other players in game format rather than on our driveway with another friend.
