What do you want to celebrate about your athlete?

Last year Dannica pitched 6 out of 7 games with over 35 strikeouts on the weekend for Districts to help her team earn the District Runner Up title and qualifying them for the State tournament, which her team went on to bring home the fourth-place trophy!

"I really admire her dedication and personal commitment. She never stops practicing!"

- Mom

What life skills do you see your athlete learning through sports?

he’s learning what commitment and dedication mean and what the benefits of those qualities are. She’s also creating lifelong friendships!

What is a character trait your Athlete has that you adore?

Danica’s number one trait I love is her heart, her love for people, animals, the game. Everything she does in life is wholeheartedly!

Besides sports, what does your Athlete aspire to be?

Danica aspires to always be a good person. Never leaving anyone out and especially has a big heart for those with disabilities. Making sure no one ever eats alone, and everyone is always treated equally.

Tell us one thing you want your athlete to know.

I would love for her to know how proud of her we are! As her Dad and I help coach her team, so we are often way harder on her and expect way more from her than anyone else on the team, therefore she doesn’t always know how proud of her we are!

Who do you look up to?

As her mother, I would say she admires her Dad the most. She loves to help him by checking cows for him. Helping with any farm chores she can! Danica respects everyone, especially her elders. And in the summertime cannot wait to spend time with her grandparents!


What do you love about sports?

She always strives to be better. Not better than anyone else, just better than herself, every time.


What do you do in your spare time?

She’s a farm girl. She loves her pets. Currently, she’s bottle feeding two calves, and her lab that we rescued is her pride and joy. And she always struggles when we go to a ballpark for the weekend that her best friend can not attend!

Congratulations, Danica!

Monthly Workshops That Will Give Parents Tools to Raise Champions: Launching August 6th

Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on the planet! As a parent, you can count on this when you wake up every day: your kids will challenge you. No matter your children’s ages, there’s going to be unexpected problems, issues, and road bumps that either irritate you, throw you for a loop or totally knock you out.

Do you have the tools ready to handle the challenges?
