NFCC Bringing Offensive Strategy Course to San Diego Jan. 14-16

The National Faspitch Coaches Association is bringing a one-of-a-kind educational experience to the campus of San Diego State University Jan. 14-16 with National Fastpitch Coaches College Course 405: Teaching a Run-Producing Team Offense and Strategy. 

The National Fastpitch Coaches College offers coaches an educational experience that is unrivaled by any other softball clinic. Unlike most offerings, the NFCC takes one specific topic and focuses on that one facet of the game the entire weekend with instruction from some of the top names in the game. 

The course, taught by Mississippi State University head coach Jay Miller along with former Northwestern University head coach Sharon Drysdale and University of Alabama head coach Patrick Murphy, focuses on teaching attendees how to determine the appropriate strategy for certain offensive situations. 

Some topics covered in the course include: coaching the bases and giving signals, game-day hitting, building a successful game plan, developing an offensive philosophy, deciding what calls to make and when to make them, drills and rules, managing personnel, dealing with slumps, and studying video to learn how to pick pitches. 

The NFCC is the perfect learning tool for seasoned coaches and newcomers to the fastpitch coaching ranks. Coaches who attend courses learn the sport in an entirely new way through interaction with instructors and colleagues. 

The coaches college offers eight courses at different locations around the country, and coaches can take the courses for the learning experience or apply the credit to earning the title of Four-Star Master Coach. The courses also work toward the completion of a master’s degree in coaching from Texas Woman’s University, and high school coaches can earn two continuing education units per course through Mississippi State University. 

Coaches looking for additional information or to sign-up for the course can do so online at http://nfca.org/college/ or by calling (662) 320-2155.
