WHAT IS The Alliance Fastpitch Summit Series?
The Alliance Fastpitch Summit Series presented by Versus will feature innovative speakers across the diamond sport industry sharing their insights and best practices with fellow leaders in the sport. Our content will focus on becoming better leaders for our athletes, understanding the evolution of our sport, and real-life insights on getting the best out of our youth female players at every stage in their development journey. This is an opportunity to learn together, share insights, and network with fellow softball coaches and athletes during the Women's College World Series.
Who is invited to the Summit?
Attendance at the Alliance Fastpitch Summit is open to all coaches from youth to high school to college or parents and athletes looking to learn more! We plan to examine the most important matters in the game with an eye towards the future, all while connecting the fastpitch community during our sport's biggest event!
Session I presented by HitTrax & RISR
Session I speakers and discussions focus primarily on the foundations and development of youth pitchers, hitters, and teams. Our speakers are a range of Olympians, professional athletes, and former college softball stars as well as the top Travel Ball Coaches who have produced countless WCWS stars, All Americans and Olympians. We will discuss topics relevant to developing youth players on and off the field. HitTrax Softball Director Elena Bowman and RISR Founder Amanda Chidester will close out the session to share their vision on improving softball instruction.
Session II speakers and discussions are bringing insights and data from baseball to softball. Our sport is constantly evolving and softball can learn from baseball's mistakes when it comes to utilizing training data and in-game data to develop softball players and create softball training programs. Kevin Davidson, Eugene Bleecker and Bobby Tewksbary are thought leaders and pioneers in the data capture, data usage, and player development space. They want to share their insights with the softball community and help bring data insights to our coaches and athletes.
