"We had our first lesson with 360U the end of March. Started with pitching and expanded to hitting. I try to not watch her lessons except I have caught her last couple pitching lessons with Haley.  Every time I watch her come out of the building she has a smile on her face and tells me what she has learned. This last weekend was her first tournament. I didn't really care about winning and obviously that helps, but more concerned about how she interacted with her teammates. I saw her do things with teammates that I never saw before and it was not on the softball field!!! Her teammates were great and most go to 360U. She is starting to gain confidence and think about herself positively instead of so much negative!"

Haley's favorite part of 360U Softball:
"The approach we take to instructing. We make it our mission to empower young females on and off the field."


Haley's best advice for young athletes: ​
"Softball is something that you DO, it's NOT who you are."
