Former Collegiate Softball Player at West Texas A&M University (2015-2018). I am a 3x All-American, 2x Golden Glove, 2x LSC MVP, and 2018 Panhandle Sports Hall of Fame Softball Player of the Year. I hold several records at my University and a few National records. I ended my Softball Career with 82 Homeruns, 8 Grand Slams, 266 RBI's, and a career batting average of .392. I enjoy breaking down a swing and enhancing mechaincs through tee drills, front toss, and live arm.
My favorite thing about coaching is seeing my players put in the work, succeed, and bragging about it to me. I love being able to explain hitting in a way that players fully understand and also seeing the process come to life. Coaching is what keeps me in the game since I can no longer play, my love for the sport is unmatched and i would't trade what I do for anything. I like to think I still play through them.
Coach Ashley has been amazing for my daughter Bria. She is stronger and just hitting the ball better than she ever has since working with her. She absolutely loves Coach Ashley's style and instruction. It is so important for your child to feel comfortable with their coach. If you want to see improvements in your child’s hitting, then you need to get in contact with Coach Ashley. Thanks for what you do Coach Bria is a better player for the knowledge of the game you have passed to her !
Ashley is amazing! She took her time with my daughter and was very hands on and patient! We will definitely be back!
Ashley did a great job working with Aubrey. Aubrey was relaxed and enjoyed herself while learning how to improve her skills. We are ready to see Ashley again!
I always start with a 5-10 minute evaluation period where I just watch mechanics and form to see what needs improvement. From there I go into instruction and explaination of a successful yet comfortable swing, pitch, throw, or feilding position depending on what the client is working on.
I studied Sport Sciences at my Univeristy where I took several classes on how students learn and the different learning processes which has really helped my ability to communicate and instruct every student in a way that they will understand best. I have worked with several major leauge baseball players throughout my career and have gained a plethora of knowldege through them.
My prices are as follows:
70.00 an hour
40.00 for half hour
100.00 for group lesson
I began teaching in college where I worked with all age groups during camps/clinics. Once my career ended I knew I wanted to continue with coaching so I jumped in at D-Bat and started working one on one, which has been my favorite.
I have worked with all different types of athletes at all different ages. I have worked with Special Olympians, Male Slow Pitch athletes, baseball players, and toddlers.
Find someone who meets your needs and cares about taking your game to the next level. Biggest piece of advice I would say is to find someone who pushes you to be better, they show tough love yet compassion for being your coach. If they don't have drive it will slowly take a toll on your passion for the game. Lessons should be fun yet taken seriously.
1. What do I struggle with most and why.
2. Am I willing to work on my skill outside of lessons.
