Thanks for the follow up and detailing what you guys worked on during her session. It is nice to see the commitment you have to the player after the lesson and even during the lesson. She left very excited and energized to do more with softball, this is her first time playing the sport and it didn’t start out with her enjoying it. I will give you kudos after the session she was asking to go back and learn more she also really enjoyed your coaching style. As I mentioned we tried other facilities and coaches and it never was fun for her and after Thursday session she was climbing off the walls. I will go online and register her for some more lessons as we have her first tournament this weekend up."
Abby's favorite part of 360U Softball:
"I love the positive and supportive environment at 360U. It is a safe space for our athletes to develop as softball players and also as young women with skills that will set them up for success well beyond their softball career!"
Abby's best advice for young athletes:
"Work hard, get better, have fun!" - I grew up with this motto and found that it perfectly describes the importance of always giving 100%, enjoying the process, and having fun through it all!"
