As a pitching coach I have a substantial amount of experience and knowledge.
I was a 4 year (Freshmen to Senior year) varsity starting player on the Burbank High Softball team from the years 2010-2013.
Following my softball career at Burbank High School, I then went to College of the Canyons where I played for 2 seasons.
I lead my team to the WSC Blue Division Championship. And took them all the way to the Semi Finals for the state chamionship (2 games away from winning it all).
I was named Western State Conference Blue Division Pitcher of the Year, All-State, and Conference MVP as a sophomore while leading the league in regular season wins (23). I produced a combined 38-15 record, 2.99 ERA, two saves, and a 1.351 WHIP during my 2015 and 2016 seasons at COC.
After playing at College of the Canyons I recieved a full ride scholarship for pitching to New York Institute of Technology (Division 2) where I finished out my pitching career.
During my years at NYiT, I helped lead the Bears to the NCAA post season playoffs and had an ERA of 3.36 in 33 appearences.
Although my softball playing career has ended, my love for the game hasn't. Giving lessons to aspiring pitchers of all ages passes the dream on that I once had as a little girl.
Helped my daughter think like a higher level softball player. We have been training with Coach Ashley for the past year and have seen great results! She is also very personable and pays attention to detail.
Ashley was great with helping my 10 year old daughter. Taught her proper pitching mechanics and pitching drills.
Coach Ashley had great patience working with my daughter on improving her pitching mechanics. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to softball. Highly recommend!
Every pitcher is different and it is extremely important as a coach to understand that. It is also just as important to want the best from your pitchers and push them to become the best that they can be. Small adjustements over time equivilate to dramatic differences, whether it be in speed, movement, control or mechanics. With consistint training and hard work anyone can achieve their goals. Whether it be making the varsity team at their highschool or recieving a college scholarship, it all comes down to how badly the player wants it and ultimately who they are learning from.
