"Bella is having so much success at the plate this summer! Her batting average continues to climb and her typical ground outs are few and far between. She’s had lots of hits, multiple doubles and even a triple!!!! Bianca was the perfect batting coach for her this spring!!
Bianca's favorite part of 360U:
"After graduating college, I found it difficult to stay connected with the sport in the same way that I had been my entire life. When I moved to Wisconsin, I came across 360U and loved how much emphasis they put on the mental side of sport as it is often overlooked and not prioritized. I believe mental strength is what sets apart great players versus champions, and it's a community I instantly knew that I wanted to be a part of!"
Bianca's best advice for young athletes:
"Growth happens when you step outside of your comfort zone. Mistakes are going to happen; give yourself 7 seconds to think about it and then move on to the next play. Never forget why you choose to play the game - remember to always have fun!"
