BaseballSoftballUK’s popular Slowpitch Softball Academy returns to Farnham Park on 4 July 2021 -- perfect for a mid-season tune-up or for those looking to learn new ways of training!
Training will again be delivered by expert BSUK coaches, led by Robbie Robison, and based around a carefully-designed programme of skills development. The session is aimed at slowpitch players looking for a refresher course during the 2021 outdoor season.
The Slowpitch Softball Academy is primarily for adult players, but all ages and skill levels are welcome.
Robbie Robison is a former GB Slowpitch Team player and Assistant Coach and is the Head Coach at both BaseballSoftballUK's Softball Academy and High Performance Academy, the UK’s elite talent development programme. The Slowpitch Academy session will use coaching and training principles developed over the past few years at the Academy, HPA, and previous Slowpitch Softball Academy sessions.
