Softball Testimonials

“After a great experience with another organization, I was very skeptical about having my daughter joining Koa. Now, after participating in the summer program, including two travel tournaments, my daughter and I cannot express enough how great it is to be a part of Koa. Coach Katina and Coach McKenna brought organization, teamwork, self confidence and camaraderie to this group of 12 year old girls in a way that no parent coach could ever accomplish. We are simply grateful for having found Koa and are very excited about the fall season. Thanks so much to Tony and his team!”

“My daughter Jenny played summer softball on the Koa team. Although talented in baseball, this was her first experience with fast pitch softball. The instruction and the coaching she received were exemplary. The coaches were endlessly patient and encouraging, no matter the situation. The practices were well organized and professionally done. The team’s participation in tournaments was well overseen and the kids were exposed to a very high level of play. I applaud Koa for bringing fast pitch softball to our area of the county and expect this program to significantly expand as more people are exposed to the excellence that they deliver.”

“Just today my daughter said to me, ‘Mom, Koa is the best?’ I swear, this is the truth and this is coming from a kid who has tried many things. She did not stick with soccer or lacrosse but has loved softball because of the incredible program you have.”

“I just wanted to write and let you know how much my 10 year old daughter is loving softball! She attended 2 of Koa’s free promotional clinics and decided she wanted to play on a team. She loves her Koa softball team and her coach has been fantastic. It is unbelievable how good the girls have gotten in just a few weeks! Recently at a family vacation at a Ritz Carlton in Florida, in which she missed a softball game, she said she wished she was at her softball game. It has been a great experience for all of the girls and they all hope to stay together as a team.”

“Fantastic! That is the only way to describe my 10 year old daughter’s experience in the koa sports Fall Mudcat Softball League. The professional female coaches, and the emphasis on fun while teacing of the fundamentals of the game was the perfect introduction into the sport. My daughter can’t wait until spring gets here so she can get back on the field. If you are looking for a fun and positive way to introduct your daughter to softball, give Koa a try!”

“The Winter Fastpitch Clinic has helped my daughter make a smooth transition from slowpitch to fastpitch. In her words, the clinic was fun, competitive, exciting, and fast-moving. It helped her gain the skills and the confidence needed for a successful transition into the new world of fastpitch softball. Thanks to all the Koa coaches and staff for all of your guidance and support.”
