Summer Individual College Showcase

FPN's 10th Annual Summer Individual College Showcase Thursday, July 22, 2021 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.
  • This event is open ONLY to players from incoming 9th graders to just graduated seniors.

Event Director is Dawn Stearns, Head Coach, University of Bridgeport.
