Coaching the PERSON before the PLAYER

It might be a little intimidating at first. Your reaction may even be like mine was: "I just wanna coach softball!"

But then when you step back and realize why you're doing this...

  • To help develop strong young women on & off the field
  • To teach them life lessons through softball
  • To make a difference

Then you realize you're already on the right track!

So listen in to today's guest, Alabama's Coach Patrick Murphy, as he shares some practical ideas for teaching those people skills!
