BC Girls High Performance Seminar - Complete

July 28, 2020

This event was a HOMERUN and was sooo much fun too...!! 

Sienna loved this.  I loved this.  I caught the very beginning when I helped her setup the Zoom call, then left to coach my son’s team at a batting cage session.  I came back 2+ hours later and she is still glued to the chair.  Fast forward another 2+ hours.  She was captivated.  The stories.  The struggles.  The success stories.   This was awesome.   I asked her numerous times since 8:30 if she was ready for bed.  Just a few more minutes she replied each time. 

For me, one challenge is that there are so few girl baseball players.  Especially when we get to top age (10-12) of little league.  So Sienna seeing this was epic.  Knowing that her struggles were your struggles.  I think what you are doing is amazing.  The camp was also great.  It isn’t just energy and love of the game you bring, but the positive energy and so much encouragement.    

Liz, you have an approach which definitely helps put the players at ease.  You are easy-going, but fiercely competitive.  I saw how much fun the girls were having with you at camp, and I know that will make them want to come back.

I know there are more accolades I could to provide.   Their contribution and support was very appreciated and incredibly valuable.  All I can say is keep on doing what you are doing.  And thank-you.
