Following an extensive review and under the supervision of BaseballSoftballUK’s Performance Department, we are proud to relaunch the Academy today, 16 October 2023, with a completely new focus and curriculum. The new Academy is multi-faceted and accessible, offering technical guidance to support the skill and gameplay development of players and coaches – focusing on the core skills of hitting, throwing, pitching and base-running.

Our mission is to empower players and coaches to reach their full potential by providing resources and support. We aim to enhance the skills, knowledge, and passion of every athlete, enabling them to excel on the field. Together, we build a stronger future for the sports we love.


The sections of the Academy are as follows:

Highly recommended for GBFL teams and players, the Fastpitch Academy makes use of not only coaches but members of the Great Britain Softball National Team Programme. More information here.
