FPN's 9th Annual Summer Outdoor Individual College Showcase Thursday, July 23, 2020 at Fastpitch Nation Park in Windsor, CT.

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 $160 for a single session or $185 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.


Event Director is Dawn Stearns, Head Coach, University of Bridgeport.
She is building her staff of her colleagues to work with the players.
Plus additional coaches attend annually to observe.
When the 2020 staff is set we will post it here.
