WHAT DO PARENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE OVERNIGHT EXPERIENCE?


 

Hi Mike, My son, Jason, and I really enjoyed the camp. Jason had a great time and I thought you all did a very good job. The food was good, the accomodations satisfactory, the management of schedule was excellent and it was a very good experience for the both of us. Thank you. David Schreiner.


Thanks Mike,We just got back from a great weekend packed with good usable, and solid baseball education. The best part was the way each coach broke down baseball to it’s basics. They taught us, step by step, the mechanics of baseball. When we pieced them all together, it became really valuable to all of us. The food was good, the dorm rooms were basic but fine and the air conditioning worked well. Although a lot was covered, the only thing I would add is some more education on the strategies of stealing and getting a lead off the bag. I thought the coaches had great attitudes and were always willing to stick around after to answer questions. Well done!!


Hi Mike, My son and I attended the 1st session of your Father/Son overnight at Frostburg and had a great time! It's a great program .


Hi Mike: thanks for your note and for setting up such a valuable camp. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and found that Coach Benson and his staff ran an excellent program.


Mike, my son and I had a great experience at FSU this past weekend. It amazed me how much I did not know about the subtle techniques of better baseball, and how much your staff knew and shared with the boys. I look forward to working more with your organization. -J.Jordan


I thought the camp was great. My son, Zach, and I had a great time, met some nice people and I think he learned quite a bit in the two days. The instructors were friendly, knowledgable and related well to the kids. Coach Benson did an excellent job running the show. We look forward to attending again next year. – Jim T.
