Testimonials from the Pitching Summit
“This was awesome. I learned so much. As a young coach it was great to hear what those who have been successful have changed, implemented, and figured out over the course of their career. Absolutely coming back next year!”
Devon Kelly, Quinnipiac University, Assistant/Pitching Coach
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Summit! The speakers had great wisdom to impart and they all had different ways of thinking which both challenged and strengthened my own philosophies. I enjoyed the topic selections - loved that it was more in depth than straight mechanics.”
Kara Dill, Louisiana State University, Assistant Coach
“I thought this was an amazing event. It gave all levels of pitching coaches the opportunities to have their questions answered and to be able to compare notes with some of the best pitching coaches in the country. I loved every minute and I will definitely be returning for next year’s event!”
Sarah Sigrest, Penn State University, Assistant/Pitching Coach
“Content was outstanding. All parties have different systems, common language ... just need to see what can be applied to what you do now. Good to see all divisions represented, inquisitive and quite honestly vulnerable. A lot of value in the discussions & presentations in the room.”
Kerri Jacklets, Providence College, Head Coach
“This was one of the best things I went to. The information is very applicable to what I can do with my team. Great idea and execution. Never a dull moment and will help me immensely.”
