"Our daughter's first lesson with Laura was a truly unique experience. Laura was able to connect with our daughter immediately; she used games and a positive reinforcement to make every second of the lesson productive. Laura was able to adjust and tweak without causing our daughter any frustration or confusion. Our daughter genuinely had a fun time while gaining valuable changes to her swing. No matter the level of your player, Laura WILL improve their swing and make them better hitters."
Laura's favorite part of 360U Softball:
"I love being able to share my softball and personal experiences to help develop our athletes! I always feel great when I am with our 360U Family."
Laura's best advice for young athletes:
"Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do something! Whether it's on or off the field be an advocate for yourself. Also, APPRECIATE the great things you do!"
