Welcome to TSI Softball

 

American Dreams Softball focuses on teaching girls of all ages to passionately pursue their dreams on and off the field. It is my personal goal to build self esteem and confidence in every softball player I work with while teaching the game of softball and giving them the tools necessary to take their game to the next level.

American Dreams Elite Camps are designed for 8th graders – 12th graders, and all elite camp instruction is done by college coaches, pro players, and softball professionals.

“Every little girl should be taught to dream BIG and live passionately” – Katy Lampman, Founder

Teaching softball is more than just building skills and confidence between the lines, it’s about preparing players in every aspect of life: in the classroom or on the job. It’s about bringing out the best in each athlete and striving to teach responsibility, discipline, team work, friendships, dedication and work ethic. The goal of American Dreams softball is to encourage and build successful athletes on and off the field.
