“As a coach, you want to win, but you can’t get too caught up in the win and loss column during summer,” Helm said. “You more so measure the success of summer by the development of your players, and I felt like each game we improved individually and as a team. I’ve seen a lot of positives this week and growth in the girls.

“We competed at a high level day in and day out, especially the 8th grade group who went 4-0 at camp. I’m especially proud of that group and the improvements they have made. The work they’ve put in on their own showed tremendously this week, and I look forward to going to war with them this fall.”

One reason Helm said she likes to attend the CU camp is because it gives her the ability to gauge where all three teams are at right before the dead period, which takes place this year from June 24-July 10.

“It gives us the chance to get a feel on our players individually and collectively as a team to see what areas we need to improve to meet the goals we have set for the season come August,” Helm said. “I use the dead period to prepare for July, so this camp is a good measuring stick.

After the dead period, Helm said her teams will be focusing on “developing and prepping” for the upcoming season.

“We will be full swing practicing and preparing for the season to get here in August,” Helm said.

Helm’s assistants are Troy Coffey, who coaches 7th grade during the season, and Christian Naylor, who coaches 6th grade.
