This was my second year at the camp and I had a blast. Next year I am going to the softball overnight camp with the new friends I met at this camp.
The coaches at camp were very helpful. They picked up on some ways I could improve my windup that would give me better control of my change up. By the end of the week, I saw significant improvement in my pitching. I look forward to using what I learned at camp next season.
Ever since the end of camp my daughter has made me go out and buy all of these new training tools so she could practice more often. The coaches definitely motivated her to stride for excellence and she has taken that to heart.
