Fastpitch Nation presents their 10th Annual Winter Indoor College Showcase Saturday, January, 26, 2019. This event allows softball players an opportunity to display their talents and work directly with college coaches from around the Northeast.
EVEN BETTER! COLLEGE COACHES will run this event and work directly with the players through various stations and drills while also evaluating their skills. Yes players will actually work with the college coaches! Coaches will also talk with the players directly about what it really takes to play college softball. This hybrid format has proven far more effective and rewarding than the format in which coaches simply watch from a distance only.
Cost is $150 for a single session or $175 for both sessions. (Session 1: Pitcher or Catcher; Session 2: Infielder/Outfielder). Plus all players will participate in a Q&A direct with the coaches at the conclusion of the event.
The On-Field Director is Dawn Stearns, Head Coach, University of Bridgeport. She has built a staff of her colleagues to work with the players. Plus additional coaches attend annually to observe.
Players can be dropped off as early as 7:30-am. Please drop players off. Do not park and accompany your player into the venue unless you are the designated warm-up catcher for your pitcher. You will be directed where to park. PLAYERS DO NOT DRIVE YOURSELVES. THERE WILL BE NO ASSIGNED PARKING FOR PLAYERS. COLLEGE COACHES AND STAFF WILL USE ALL AVAILABLE PARKING.
