My family and I have had nothing but great experiences at Grand Slam USA! We initially started attending just for the batting cages until my oldest daughter decided to step up her softball game. She took lessons with Courtney Rivera first and while she was great Coach Bo's personality meshed much better with my daughter's. My daughter used to be shy and lacked confidence in her skills. She performed well but did not believe in her abilities. Coach Bo has turned her into a softball machine, both in her hitting and pitching. She is not only a confident, loud softball player but she truly believes in herself because of what Coach Bo has instilled in her. Coach Bo cares about her players more then any coach I have seen not only in the gym but outside the gym as well! My son also attended pitching lessons with Coach Pete. He was beyond amazing with my son who has issues with social skills and can get frustrated when he doesn't preform well. Coach Pete took his time with him and helped him work through his motion giving him lots of techniques to practice at home. They joked and played and it was the most fun my son had doing baseball in a while. All the staff at Grand Slam have been exceptional and professional with myself and my kids. They are a loud, funny, client loving group of people who enjoy sharing their love of the game with everyone who enters their facility.
We have taken our kiddo to this location for a few years now, Bo, Jessica Bowen has been her hitting coach and from the first second we knew Cam would improve instantly! She is awesome! She knows her stuff and she has a way of teaching these kids to making them little pros! She is a local celeb around here;) if you are in the softball world and you don't know Bo, you need to!!
Coach Bo Rocks! I've known Jessica Bowen for a long time, both as a player and now as a coach, and there's not a more knowledgeable and passionate softball coach around. The energy and enthusiasm she exudes has instilled a love of the game in my daughter that she's never had before. Bo's coaching style is a perfect combination of fun and firmness. She has challenged my daughter to work harder than she's ever worked, yet she's having more fun playing softball than she's ever had. I also love how she constantly asks her students to reflect on what they've done right or wrong. She teaches her students how to think about the game and how to coach themselves. Grace absolutely LOVES Bo , and her words, "COACH BO IS THE BEST! SHE HAS TAUGHT ME SO MUCH ABOUT KEEPING MY WEIGHT BACK AND DRIVE THE BALL."
My 4 kids have been coached by Jessica Bowen at Grand Slam for 4 years. She has improved the skills of the two older two children tremendously and they are playing on two very elite travel teams. As well, she is currently working with the younger two (8 and 5) and I can see the same results. She is an amazing hitting, pitching and fielding coach and if you and your kids are serious about attaining the next level (i.e. college softball) she is the go to person. We couldn't have done it without Jessica. Plus she is a heck of a lot of fun and the kids love going to lessons.
Jessica Bowen, "Coach Bo" is the best! My daughter, Avery, has taken both hitting and pitching lessons with her for several years. Avery has always been a power hitter, and I know Coach Bo helped develop what she has today. Coach Bo is very energetic and keeps lessons on task, but has fun doing it. The owners of Grandslam always remember their usual customers and will take time to ask about our day and how softball is going. They may not have top of the line batting cages, but they make up for it with the people and knowledge they offer.
