My Story

Training for Greatness

As a professional Softball Trainer, I have become well-known and respected throughout the greater Fairfield County area. I have developed my own unique training methods, all aimed at syncing the body and mind in preparation for competing against the best. I believe that a rigorous training system not only develops physical strength, but also the mental stamina required to compete at the highest levels of the game. At Rita Jags Softball, I keep up with the latest training techniques and methodologies, and consistently push my athletes to the limit.
