What is the Pitching Summit?

Once again you can join premier college pitching coaches and learn from the best pitching minds in college softball! The 4th Annual Pitching Summit - presented by Cindy Bristow's Softball Excellence – will focus on the mental, physical and emotional topics required for pitching success in today's college game!

The Pitching Summit format consists of speakers, panel discussions, roundtable sessions, shorter more-specific micro-topics and networking opportunities that cover topics such as Game Management, Pitch Development, Competitive Workouts, Seasonal Practices & much, much more!

Let's continue getting pitching back in the college game by learning from and sharing with your college coaching peers! Come and learn, share, network and improve yourself and your pitchers!

Why attend?

Learn from the top pitching coaches in the country and gain valuable knowledge you can immediately use in the Fall.

The limited size creates an intimate setting that allows you to participate in roundtable discussions with fellow coaches, pick the speaker’s brains, and uncover how their solutions can apply to your pitchers.

Hear innovative drills, workouts and strategies that will help improve your results.
