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. For more info and to register, Click Here.

PITCHER'S WORKSHOPS NOW FORMING - FPN's pitching clinics are always popular but many players want more instruction. However, not everyone can dedicate the time or the budget to private instruction. So FPN has created "The Pitchers Workshop". This individualized instruction in a group setting is for a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 pitchers per session at a cost less than half of private pitching instruction. Players usually form their own groups. However, if you do not have a group let us know and as soon as one forms and needs an extra pitcher we can add you. For more info, Click Here.
