DIVISION 1 ALL AMERICAN 2010 - NATIONAL PRO FASTPITCH DRAFT PICK 2011 - PERU NATIONAL TEAM 2018
Requests from all over the map continued to pour in. Parents looking for help with their daughters during practice. Coaches asking about mechanics. Pitchers wanting to learn everything and anything. I quickly realized we had a problem. The opportunity for one to grow on and off the mound wasn't easily accessible to everyone. It didn't seem fair, it was a real problem.
I searched for hours, days and months for a solution that no one was offering. I asked multiple companies for help in designing what I knew could and would be the greatest place for pitching enthusiasts. Because there were no examples to follow or learn from my vision was quickly not being seen by others. So, I did it myself. I knew if I could create a safe space for people all around the world to train from that it would be game changing. A space where members could learn from my experiences of being a professional pitcher, lean on others for support during their journey, receive feedback on their videos - their questions and have access to this community at their fingertips 24/7; I knew it would be special.
In 2017, I had a dream for us, and here we are now - over 400 members (more like family), all growing together. Our space is safe for those being vulnerable in tough times, it's motivating through live workouts and scientific through understanding how human movement correlates with your pitching foundation. We are powered by myself, Foot Doctor Esia and the hundreds of supportive members.
I am grateful to have went for it! I am thankful for the growth we have had. I am inspired daily by those who have been impacted by The Online Pitching Academy. I am honored to have developed the FIRST Online Pitching Academy that has encouraged others to follow. Others are now courageous enough to build their communities and continue to grow the sport of softball. This is me, it's you - it's us :) and we deserve it!
