Hi Lisa;

I hope all is going well with you & you are enjoying your spring!  I just had to drop you a quick note.  Allie had her first games, and first playing with a new team.  She got up to bat 4 times and hit EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!  She got a triple and 3 doubles and two of them hit the grass on first bounce!  She really took what you all taught her to heart and it showed.  When we got in the car to come home, she goes "Mom, those hits felt really good!  And I know I was running faster and I know that is from being at MFA."  She also got the "most supportive teammate" award from her coach for cheering on her teammates - pretty cool to watch:)

Thank you again for all your encouragement to Allie and all she's learned.  She'll carry it forever.

Hi Coach B, I just wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to you and all of the MFA staff!! Since joining your group, the improvement in Julia's hitting has been amazing. She hit back to back homeruns followed by a triple in the championship game and went 9 for 11 total in her high school tournament today. It's great to see the progress. You guys are amazing!!

Thanks again,

Chris A.

I am a Mom that has coached both of her daughters for the last 3 years and both are now 6 & 9 years old. I knew my oldest was ready for the next level and needed a new experience. My youngest, who picked up the sport early on, lacked the confidence to play if Mom wasn’t nearby coaching and a fear of being outside her comfort zone to learn new things. My oldest daughter loved the experience she had at one of MFA’s pitching clinics, and how much fun they made everything. I knew they were the right team to help me with both my daughter’s needs. The first day of their Instructional Clinic, both girls fearlessly learned new drills and left with soaring confidence due to the team’s ability to make them feel good about what they were learning. MFA kept both young girls 100% engaged the entire time, and they loved every minute of it. Only disappointment the girls had was the follow day when it wasn’t Clinic Day!  Kudos to MFA for giving my girls a great experience and making them love softball even more.  One satisfied Mom, and two very excited and happy girls. Thank you MFA!

Bella had try-outs for both her in-house team and the travel team and she received rave reviews from all of the coaches. She made the top travel team and the coach sent me a note commenting on her amazing improvement and confidence. He was in awe of her hitting, and all of her skills really. He's not overly known for his praise so I know if he says it, he really means it!!

MFA is a big part of that improvement so I wanted to thank you and Julie for the great work you do. We'll be back for more training for sure. We've had tons of parents ask us what she did to improve so much in the off season and we're spreading the word about the great work you do. She was good before but now she's at another level of play, which is exciting to see. You make it so fun that she never feels like it's a chore to go and it's clearly paid off in her skills and confidence. She can't wait for the season to start. Thanks again -
