I am hoping there are folks here that can help me overcome my lack of knowledge regarding Fast-pitch Softball and educate me on what I need to do to
help my daughter. My daughter is 15 and a Freshman playing on her HS JV team. She is left handed hitting and throwing and plays 2nd base. She's a
strong defender and bats 3rd on her team. She is a very good hitter and hits with power. She can also play SS, 1B and OF. She isn't fast but
hustles well and has an excellent attitude and gives 100% effort. She has been playing since she was 9 on rec league teams.
Here is my problem. She has recently expressed to me how much she loves softball and that she would like to continue playing at the college level. I
don't know that much about women's sports and just figured she did it go fun, but now she is getting really serious about her sport. I feel I have
let her down by not being educated on club teams and private coaching etc. Is it too late to help her get a college opportunity? Any college level
She is by far the best JV player on her team (coach says that to me and uses her play as example to other girls). What do I need to know to help
her? What resources are there? Is it too late for club teams? Basically help, lol. I don't know what I don't know and hope there is someone out
there that can help me to help her.
