Is to prepare all players, regardless of age and skill level, for high school and college softball. The FireStix coaching staff is committed at all age levels to the enhancement of our players’ skill sets by applying fundamental and advanced techniques in all areas of fastpitch softball. We are committed to providing a positive atmosphere for our girls to grow as players and people. Our goal is to provide maximum exposure for our players to college softball programs, so they have the opportunity to play at the next level.
Most Important: It's about the girls, and helping them succeed in a sport they love!
College Recruiting Process: We do our best to help our players earn the opportunity to play college softball, which you can see on our College Commits Page. We play the best competition possible in the Fall & Summer seasons, provide instruction and hundreds of reps through our winter workouts and communicate with numerous college coaches throughout the year. We inform our players and parents about the college recruiting process, get them to the right camps & clinics, help them find quality private instructors for individual skills like pitching & hitting.
Every High School aged player receives access to our Sports Recruits program. Here they create player profiles, search for colleges that match their skill level and academic requirements and communicate with college coaches. This robust platform tremendously eases the college recruiting process for players (and parents). Sports Recruits allows college coaches to search for players that meet their needs as well.
***Note*** The SportsRecruits program is included with your Firestix Player's Fee! There is no additional charge for this service!
