“Just wanted to say thanks again to you and all the coaches for making it so much fun for the girls. Sarah had a great time and is looking forward to anything else that may come up.”
“Thanks so much. It was amazing to be a part of this inaugural season.”
Coach Niki Boyd – Team Canada Player says “It was an awesome experience for the players and us coaches too. Some of the girls were extremely shy in the beginning, but by the end of the day they became some of the leaders. It was really cool to see them progress on the field as baseball players and off the field as young individuals. The girls built friendships, learned a few baseball fundamentals and had a lot of fun along the way.”
“Last year I had the opportunity to coach and share my passion for baseball with girls from across the Lower Mainland. I enjoyed coaching and teaching these amazing little girls and watching them grow and improve throughout the course of the camp. Not only did they improve skill-wise, they had the opportunity to meet other girls who shared the same passion for baseball as they do. It was great to see so many eager and excited girls who enjoyed and loved the game as much as I do. I learned a lot from these girls and it was a great experience. I look forward to coaching them again this year.”
“I was honoured to help coach such a cheerful and happy group of girls last season with the instructional league. The girls always had smiles on their faces and were having fun, even though they were working super hard and learning lots! An opportunity like this is something that I wish was around when I was younger, as I would have loved to have engaged with fellow female baseball players, and been introduced to some amazing role models along the way! I am very excited to be returning as a coach next season and am looking forward to meeting and developing the future of girls baseball!”
“I had an amazing experience this past summer as a coach with the B.C. Girls Instructional League. It was great to see girls with all different experience levels coming together to improve their skills and have fun. It was a summer filled with sweat, tears, laughs, bruises, water fights, and new friendships. I would have loved an opportunity to join a league like this when I was younger. It shows the girls that they have the option to play baseball, softball, or both! I can’t wait to build off this inaugural season and see what 2019 has in store for us.”
