Discussion: In your whole softball career who was the individual(s) (coach, player, relative, etc) who had the most impact on your approach, development and how you play the game? And why?

Allan,
Interested in how many swings you have on your new ultra II black from this year as compared to the Dudley?

Discussion: 2 FLEX or NOT 2 FLEX

OZ,
You are on track with your statement. It's not a simple question to answer unless you ...simplify it. By and large a one piece bat is stiffer than a two piece bat but....even that can be variable due to different lay ups in the handle area itself. Another thing that players sometimes mistake barrel flex for handle flex. Again, depending on design, this can be a different feeling from bat to bat.

James,
I would be happy to speak to you and determine which bat may fit you best.

Guys,
We now have three hotels that are basically in the same parking lot next to the Vero Beach Outlet Mall. (Designed to lure spouses and girlfriends, lol!)
These are at the main intersection of Rt. 60 and I95 and about 15 minutes from the South County Regional Park in Vero Beach where the training camp will be held.
Hampton Inn
Country Suites
Holiday Inn Express
Each of these are at various price levels with the best value being Country Suites. We now have campers coming from as far away as Canada and California and I'm excited to have each of you there. If you want a one on one experience where you can benefit during every phase of the camp, call and register now. You will find it to be the most comprehensive camp designed especially for the needs of the senior player.

Hemi,
My dad is a retired colonel ....he calls them "war stories" ! It's a a fun time for sure. I've been told by one of our campers the way to go right now is priceline on a few of the hotels right on Rt60/I95 in Vero Beach by the Outlet Mall. I will continue to work on them.
Wes, you can fly into Orlando or West Palm Beach and even Sanford is not far as well...

A hotel room update: Rooms are hard to come by in February. I am still working on a small room block but many hotels don't want to block off rooms ahead as they can get $200 per night for a $100 room that time of the year. I did get information today that will get you a room for $109 which is $80 less per night than usual. Make your reservations ASAP before rates go up:

Wes,
You are right as I really didn't list it correctly on the thread here but it is correct on the site. Thursday evening is just an informal meet and greet and the program goes all day Friday, Saturday and a half day Sunday. Hope you can make it.

Discussion: Mikens New Ultra II Black debuts.....

Oz,
I have sent hundreds of them around the country from various points of production runs. I have also personally hit bunches of the different models at different times. I haven't had anything reported to me note I have I experienced any major differences in performance in any of these bats. I did have one that took me an extra 50-60 swings to get it hot but otherwise, we have seen very consistent performance throughout these bats lives. Additionally, we have only seen 1 or 2 "early failures" that happened around 400-500 swings. Remember when we dreamed of getting 400-500 swings out of a hot senior bat? , lol

Webbie,
Not sure if your post was meant for this thread but? We had an actual Rep that works DIRECTLY for Dudley at our fall camp and he will be at our spring camp too. He will have the latest information and updates from Dudley along with demo bats for guys and girls to swing. Anything new coming down the pike from Dudley will be presented along with updates from the current line. The new back packs and bags that he showed us were certainly very nice! Hope to see you at our camp...

Discussion: Mikens New Ultra II Black debuts.....

So the 3 different models of Mikens new Ultra II Black have been out for a couple months or so and....the reports across the board show us what my testing showed..: a very high performance and durable senior bat in a variety of weight distributions. Mikens engineers go these bats done correctly and have set a new standard in the senior bat market. The good news now is that Miken has caught up at the production line and we have all sizes readily available to us. Get with me with any questions.

Doer,
Glad you like the bat. It certainly is one of the best I've ever tested. What's even better is that all 3 models are consistent and perform at top levels. Competition in the marketplace has produced a great product for us senior guys to take advantage of. Miken has finally caught up to the huge demand so I actually have them in stock now. Before this....I was waiting at the mailbox every day! Lol

Discussion: Tanel cleats

Webbie,
Tanel is not making cleats or anything else right now. I do have a few pairs left but not many. Take a look at those Mizunos that I mentioned in a previous post. The Erupt 3 comes in either 3/4 or standard height and are real durable and most importantly comfortable. If I can help you out let me know. Glad to answer any questions.

OZ,
We will be at:
South County Regional Park
800 20th Ave SW
Vero Beach, FL 32962

I am working on host hotel rooms right now. February is the peak of the tourist season in Vero so rooms are more expensive and harder to come by. I work on them and work on them and try to get you guys the best rates! There are several hotels right on I95 and RT60 and they sit in the same parking lot as the famous Vero Beach Outlet Mall which is a big shopping destination. (A VERY good way to entice your wife or girlfriend into letting you come! LOL)
I should have all that done by next week along with confirming our banquet site....Thank You,

Oly,
I appreciate your post. It may be possible but sometimes cost is prohibitive. I guess if you could advertise it in your area in conjunction with myself doing the same it could possibly work. I would have to fly myself and the staff and pay for hotels and their food over four days which is a bit costly. We usually only charge $250 per player and that includes the banquet on Saturday night plus giveaways. I would have to break it down but I'm thinking we would have to have at least 50 or so players to break close to even which I am willing to do. I'm happy to speak with you and work together on this in the future if you are interested in working together on it.

Hi guys,
I've been asked to start a new thread on this so we don't have any confusion. We just finished a very successful Fall edition of our teaching program for senior players. Team 1 Sports is the only softball company that specializes and caters to the needs and requirements of the senior softball player and our camps show this. The next edition will be in Vero Beach , FL on February 25,26&27 th, 2016. I promise you this....if you come you will learn things that other camps don't cover and your game will change for the better. Between individual instruction, mini seminars, games, and organized bp sessions you will have fun and progress as a senior athlete. With our added "mini boot camp atmosphere" you will go home laughing, in better shape, and be a better player. Registration is $250 and it's limited as we make sure to keep out instructors able to meet the individual needs of each athlete. Call me at 561-718-7504 to register or with questions.
