"Maria, we were extremely impressed with today’s lesson and your / 360U Softball’s approach to coaching.  We will be looking for a future time for additional lessons.  You have something very, very special going - it is a unique,  influential, and powerful environment for young women to develop athletically and socially.

Thank you again for sharing your expertise with our daughter. We hadn’t even left you facilities parking lot and she wanted to know when we could come back again.  You made a very special connection with our daughter - that is so important to us and our daughter."
