NFCC Bringing Team Offense Course to Massachusetts


The National Fastpitch Coaches Association’s National Fastpitch Coaches College opens the 2008 schedule by offering its Team Offense & Strategy fastpitch softball instructional course Jan. 4-6 on the Tufts University campus in Medford, Mass. 

The course, led by Mississippi State and USA Softball junior national team head coach Jay Miller; University of Nebraska head coach Rhonda Revelle; and former University of Utah head coach Mona Stevens, will thoroughly guide attendees through analyzing and developing the different pieces of the offensive game. 

The course will examine the pieces of the offensive puzzle while practicing play calling and putting together a batting order and offensive game plan. The three-day course will also explore issues related to the mental offense, assist in drill development and study how to read different defensive setups. 

The NFCC has proven to be valuable to seasonal veterans and newcomers of the coaching community. The course not only teaches new skills, but it also allows for sharing of skills with colleagues in the coaching profession. The NFCC reinforces the weekend’s education with an in-depth manual of course content that attendees can utilize for future reference. 

The NFCC offers six courses at different locations around the country, and coaches can take the courses just for the learning experience or apply the credit to earning the title of Four-Star Master Coach. The courses can also work toward the completion of a master’s degree in kinesiology with an emphasis in coaching from Texas Woman’s University. 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. 

The weekend course is $225 for NFCA members, and $200 if registered by Dec. 21. Coaches can join the association to receive the member discount, or attend at the non-member rate of $250 ($225 if registered 14 days in advance).
