Instructors

We are proud to offer you a team of instructors of high calibre, considered some of the top coaches in Quebec.

Our specialists have expertise in all aspects of the game and have many years of experience on a provincial, national and international level not only in woman’s fastpitch but the men’s category as well.

Our team of instructors remains relatively constant from year to year but we’re also adding new faces every year. The final composition of our instructing staff is finalised the month before the camp.
