2022 WINTER TRAINING

Join us this winter for training. Winter training is a great way for players to build their skills in the offseason. This is completely optional for players. This year's training will be run by college athletes, college coaches, high school coaches, and other qualified instructors. Training runs from January 2 - March 6 on Sundays. Girls are organized by training groups posted this fall. Included with training is an emphasis on defensive skills, hitting, catching, and pitching. All training will take place at the NPMS gyms. 

Coach a team in the NPGFA. Each team will have one head coach and up to two assistants. The season begins in mid April and goes through July. Teams in the 10U age group and older will participate in two tournaments, qualifiers, and the state tournament.  Teams have the option to attend nationals if they qualify. All coaches will undergo a background check and must complete ACE and concussion training. All requirements can be completed online. Softball education and support is provided to all coaches through a free clinic and the SBDC. Team practice leaders from the high school will assist in practices during the summer. All applications are due by December 15th.  Apply online today at newpraguefastpitch.com. under the "Coaches Corner" tab.  If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Digatono at mdigatono@isd721.org.

The NPGFA is proud to offer four free pitching lessons with one of their qualified instructors OR two free lessons with an instructor at Strike Zone. After the fourth lesson, players are able to continue their lessons with the instructors for their individually set prices. This year we have also brought back free 8U pitching group training with Katie Johnson each week to help prepare players for live pitching at the 10U level. 

Catching training will continue to be provided free of charge each week in small group sessions with experienced instructor, Jordan Henkel. This is a great opportunity for girls to develop their skills or get an introduction to catching. Jordan also offers one on one lessons. Sign up can be found on the winter training page under the catching tab at the bottom. 

This year Melissa Digatono is offering private or partner hitting sessions during training hours. Hitting lessons are on a first come, first serve basis and not paid for through the NPGFA.    

See the training schedule and lesson sign ups here on the NPGFA website under the program info and winter training sections. Access the links to the sign up at the bottom of the page near the instructor bio.
