  • “I believe that I grew as a coach"

    “I believe that I grew as a coach by listening to the LBGTQ+ discussion. The panel did a phenomenal job of sharing their experiences, educating us on the impact we have, and giving advice on how to be better allies.” — Trena Prater, assistant coach, University of Iowa
  • “The softball world really is lucky..."

    “The softball world really is lucky to have such a great association that takes care of their coaches and provides amazing opportunities for them.” — Alexis Lynn, head coach, Schreiner University
  • “The mentor sessions were incredible."

    “The mentor sessions were incredible. Any opportunity to communicate with other coaches in a small group session is an incredible opportunity.” — Mark Petryniec, head coach, Huntley High School (Ill.)
  • “I loved the wide variety of topics"

    “I loved the wide variety of topics and ways the NFCA presented information. I enjoyed the mentoring sessions the best and loved the breakout rooms.” — Edith Gallagher, head coach, Mansfield University
  • “I liked the mentoring sessions the best."

    “I liked the mentoring sessions the best. I was really fortunate to have some great mentors early on in my career, which has really shown me how important that can be. Being able to give back to those coaches that are younger than me or have less experience, while also getting to learn from others in the profession in the same sessions is just so unique. It was fun to talk to so many different people in just an hour of time and the conversations were easy and flowed. Overall I just felt like it was such a good use of my time and they were so enjoyable.” — Lauren Ebstein, head coach, Tufts University
  • “I know the NFCA helped me become a better coach during COVID."

    “I know the NFCA helped me become a better coach during COVID. Also, kept me sane. It was nice to have a schedule of things each week that were provided to us either for free or a small price for knowledge that was from the best of the best. Especially just finishing my first year as a head coach, these opportunities allowed me to learn more about things I didn't know, helped me get more insight on the areas I feel strong in, and allowed me to have conversations with other coaches across the country to help build my confidence as a coach.” — Alexis Lynn, head coach, Schreiner University
  • "These webinars were times that I looked forward to"

    "These webinars were times that I looked forward to because I was able to connect with new people within our sport and hear new perspectives. I've taken away so much information that I can use with my team and I have also been validated in ways that I am working within my program.” — Emlyn Knerem, head coach, Ashland University
  • "Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to the game!”

    “I really don’t know any other association that did as much for their membership as the NFCA did for softball. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to the game!” — Edith Gallagher, head coach, Mansfield University
