I am not a player, I am a coach looking for the right coaching situation abroad. I have coached Fastpitch Softball for many years, and I currently manage two travelball teams in the Southern California area. I am a teacher and I have a Masters Degree in Education.

I am a player in Central America and I would just like to suggest that more information be available for softball within Central America. Central America is not a powerhouse in softball, but countries do play competitive softball. Currently the federations of the different countries have come together to create different means of competitive softball and showcasing many young talents, in both male and female divisions, yet no ifnormation is being related to the rest of the softball world. Currently there is a Champion of Champions held every year in both male and female which features the top softball clubs from the various countries. There is also youth tournaments held to develop the growth of the sport. I hope in the future there will be more information available about softball in Central America.

I’m a softball coach in Italy.
Different Italian teams organize summer young tournaments in Italy (especially Girls, Cadets, Juniores).
They would like to invite US teams at their tournaments.
Therefore, I would like to know if any US club or association is interested to come and have a softball experience in Italy.

Some of the organizing clubs provide for everything (like board and lodging) so you have to pay for the trip only. Other clubs can provide for the meals and they find a good solution at low price for the lodging (like tents or similar).

Therefore if anybody is interested, please send me an email at my address quoted here below.

There would be also the possibility to do a softball exchange, so the Italian teams could come in the future to US.
It can be a very nice experience!

Thank you in advance for your help.
All the best

A 12 and under coach is requiring the catchers to position themselves sideways at the plate. this would cause the protective equipment to be useless from what I can see. Is this an acceptable practice? Why would he want them to do this?
