Dickey’s Dugout is built on a foundation that focuses on the undiscovered power of young athletes!
Our goal is to not only help guide each athlete to the next level of this sport through fundamental and elite training but to also LIGHT A FIRE in every young athlete we work with by mentoring young girls to become the young women they are meant to be.
This fire is ignited by the 3 core values that Dickey’s Dugout instructors coach by and live by:
CONFIDENCE: Self awareness at a level of understanding what you’re fully capable of.
FREEDOM: Free of all fears, free of all doubt. Freedom to unleash your soul and energy.
INTEGRITY: In moments of fear, choosing courage over comfort. Choosing what moves you toward the dream version of yourself!
