Player Development

Free Clinics and Open Gyms

Blast Preseason Clinics

We are excited to kick off our fastpitch season by offering our annual Pre- Season Clinics. These are a free opportunity for our players to get reacquainted with their softball skills before they head into evaluations at the end of February. We will be focusing on fielding, hitting, throwing, base running and agility during this pre-season training. We encourage our players to attend as many as their schedule will allow. 

Equipment Needed: Proper athletic shoes, glove, fielding mask, bat and helmet. If you need to borrow any equipment please don’t hesitate to reach out. 

We ask that all players pre-register if possible so that we can determine the amount of staff we need. This is new compared to year’s past. We want to make these clinics as productive as possible and preparing for adequate coaches helps with this.

Clinics and Other Opportunities


TC Fastpitch Blast Exclusive Clinics

Third Session TC Fastpitch Clinics

The BFA development team is excited to collaborate with TC Fastpitch to offer high-level training exclusively for Blast players.

We have designed pitching, catching and hitting clinics to help players bring their skills to a more competitive level. Qualified TC Fastpitch staff will be instructing and the third session clinics starts January 19th.

We are working on a more formal approach to off-season development this winter. It will apply to our top/older players all the way down to our beginners. In fact, starting them with the right mechanics is so critical that we'll be trying to get as many players there as we can. We'll obviously keep it fun and age-appropriate.  BFA is covering a large portion of the clinic cost so don’t wait sign up today!
