Our softball camps in Texas are staffed with former and current college and professional softball players, and college coaches ,who are extremely experienced and share one common goal - to provide you with the tools you need to take your game to the next level and beyond. Eat, live and breathe the game with us while we train daily at Integrity Park, one of the premier softball facilities just northwest of Dallas, in Argyle.

What if I have to cancel a camp?

We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date at any of our camps. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
