A lifelong softball athlete and alumna of the Rhode Island College Softball Team, Coach Emily has an education degree and a passion for teaching and sportsmanship. She has coached travel, high school and recreational softball in the state of Rhode Island for nearly a decade. For the past five years, she has been providing softball lessons to athletes ages 8-21 in the skills of pitching and hitting. The concept of The Backstop Softball Training Facility was born from increasing demand from her players for more softball training opportunities, and wanting to create a softball facility to support developing athletes in need of quality softball training in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
What we do
The Backstop Softball Training Facility is the best place for softball training in Rhode Island. We're proud to offer softball lessons in a brand new facility with state-of-the art softball equipment. Our coaches have all either played or coached collegiate level softball. Our players learn key softball skills to improve their pitching, hitting, catching and fielding capabilities. We focus on training the "whole athlete" meaning the physical and mental components of the game that build truly great softball athletes.
