We were truly impressed at the improvement we saw in our son during this camp. Coach Lonny has a passion for training that is really apparent to both kids and parents. My son left the camp begging to come back next summer.

Both of my boys, Erick age 10 and Zack age 7, loved going to Lightning Baseball Camp last Summer. Coach Lonny and his entire coaching staff were very upbeat, happy and patient. From practicing drills and playing games to the unforgetable slip and slide, the boys always came home talking about everything they learned and how much fun they had! They were excited to see how much their skills improved by attending your camp. They can't wait for next Summer to get here for more Lightning fun!!!

Starting to learn softball at the age of 12 can be intimidating, but Coach Shapiro and his counselors made me feel comfortable. In only one week of Winter Break Camp, I learned and worked on all of the fundamentals. I was so proud that in my first rec game I ever played, I won the game ball. Thanks, Coach, for giving me the confidence I needed.

Thank you for having Kellie at your camp last week. She had a great week working on her hitting. She really enjoyed working with your coaches and instructors. She learned a lot this past week. Next summer she has it down that she wants to do several weeks at your camp. That's how much she enjoyed it. Thanks again.

Coach (Lonny) Shapiro utilizes cutting edge techniques and theories that are similar to some of the most successful softball colleges in the country. His motivation, demonstrations, and creative games help to empower the girls to reach their full potential. I strongly encourage all girls looking to improve their game to attend.

I can honestly say that in my 14 years as a softball player, I never experienced a coach with more dedication and sincerity. During the four years I spent as a player for Coach Shapiro he displayed on a daily basis, not only an excellent work ethic, but also compassion. I truly feel that because of the four years I spent with Coach Shapiro I am not only a more skilled softball player, but a better person.

I truly learned a great deal from your tutelage of softball playing and at the same time enjoyed meeting everyone and learning new skills and getting rid of some bad ones. Thank you for your support and I look forward in learning more from you in the future.

I have been playing softball since the age of 5 and have experienced numerous coaches; both bad and good. Coach Shapiro is the most dedicated and motivated coach I have ever played for. I had the honor of playing for Coach Shapiro for three years in high school and improved immensely as a player. He not only helped me improve on my game, he made me a better person. Coach Shapiro cares more about his players being good people than winning every game. Coach Shapiro always wants what's best for his girls and is willing to do anything to make us a better player, wheter its spending extra time on our hitting, or pushing us to work to our fullest potential. Having Coach Shapiro coach you for the summer is a great idea, and hopefully one day you'll be lucky enough to have him as your high school softball coach!
