A YEAR ROUND Softball Performance Program to take your game to the NEXT LEVEL
The Softball Performance Network was developed to give every softball coach, player and parent the resources they need to take their game to the next level. Players are becoming bigger, faster and stronger like never before.  

When talking to college evaluators and coaches the #1 one recommendation they give all players is to become the best athlete as possible and learn how to take care of their bodies.  

We've all heard the saying "you throw like a girl"...well its true..YOU DO!  

There are some very specific reasons for this and they can't be ignored if you want to keep yourself performing at a high level while keeping yourself HEALTHY.  Yes HEALTHY! We are seeing injuries occur in female athletes at a rapid pace and there are good reasons why. These issues need to be addressed and monitored throughout a players development.  

In the SPN Performance Program, each player will be able to train regardless of what season they are in or how many sports they are playing. Everyone will fall into a training season and work can be done!  

In softball, we must develop core, strong stabilizers, and explosive but flexible prime movers. Using our functional, ground based training methods that will incorporate speed, strength, and flexibility movements, your muscles will maximize motor unit recruitment making you more mobile and powerful. 
METHODOLOGY
Most players feel like there is no off season. So when do they train? How do they recover?  

Players will be able to train with less of a chance of plateauing in the program. Since movements in softball do not isolate muscles in one plane of motion, training will focus on complex, multi-joint exercises through various planes of motion.  

In softball, we must develop core, strong stabilizers, and explosive but flexible prime movers. Using our functional, ground based training methods that will incorporate speed, strength, and flexibility movements, your muscles will maximize motor unit recruitment making you more mobile and powerful.

The Philosophy of the SPN Performance Program is to work off our CORE Philosophy which will focus on developing a stable base of support, the ability to generate forces that will transfer more efficiently throughout the body, creating a more effective movement pattern. 

Program Goals

There are 3 main program goals:

1- Increase athletic performance and maximize potential.
2- Aid in reducing the probability of injury.
3- Install healthy habits that will stay with each athlete throughout their playing career.
