What should I expect at the TPD Experience?
Defense, hitting, agility and mindset! Every Experience will include goal-setting and drills your girls can take home to get better every single day.
What is the player to coach ratio at TPD clinics?
The player-to-coach ratio at TPD clinics is by far the best in our business; about 6:1
Can I stay to observe my daughter’s sessions? If so, is there a fee for this?
There is no fee to observe your daughter’s session off of the turf / playing field and we welcome parents to stay and observe. Please note that space allotted for observation at our host venues will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you would like to be ON the turf / playing field during your daughter’s session, you must register for a Coach Pass.
What is the Coach Pass?
This is a pass for parents or coaches to observe stations, ask questions, video drills, and take notes close to the action. The Coach Pass gets you on the turf or field with us throughout the entire day, plus, you’ll receive our PD Coach Packet so you can take your learnings home with you. Coaches of all levels may participate in this session. It is common for parents to buy the Coach Pass in order to grasp the coaching cues we teach for practice at home.
Does my daughter need to bring her softball equipment?
Yes. Please ask your daughter to bring all equipment she would typically take to her practice, game, lesson, etc.
What should my daughter wear?
Your daughter should wear something athletic, that she can move in. Some players wear shorts while others wear softball pants or athletic leggings. Please also make sure your daughter brings both cleats and running shoes as we may be indoors on turf or outdoors on dirt, depending on our venue the day of the clinic.
Will my daughter be grouped by age and by skill?
Yes. Information regarding age and skill level will be collected during the online registration process. Additionally, we make adjustments on-site as needed.
Does my daughter need a catcher for the pitching session?
Catchers are not mandatory for the pitching session.
Can I videotape my daughter during the clinic?
You may video tape your daughter as long as you do so off of the turf (Exception: those that have purchased a Coach Pass) and do not interfere with instruction. We also ask that you refrain from setting up a tripod.
What is the age minimum for this clinic?
We ask that attendees have one season of 8 & under playing experience or greater.
What is the age maximum for this clinic?
Typically, we train athletes through high school. In some instances we may train collegiate athletes.
Are boys allowed to participate in this clinic?
We feel that our message, which is centered around female empowerment and development on and off the field, will have a greater impact on female attendees.
Will my daughter who is in high school be challenged at this clinic?
Absolutely; TPD sessions are taught by professional instructors and all drills/ groupings are designed with various age and skill levels in mind.
Will my daughter who has never played pitcher/ catcher still benefit from TPD clinics?
We ask that attendees have at least one season of playing experience before registering for TPD clinics in order for her to get the most out of our message and instruction.
Do you offer a discount if I register more than one daughter?
TPD clinics routinely sell out due to popularity and the fact that our maximum number of attendees is capped at a low number. Because of this, we do not offer sibling or multi-session discounts.
Do you offer a discount if I purchase more than one session?
We want to reach as many athletes in every region we visit and therefore offer our sessions “A la carte” in hopes that more players are able to attend at least one session to train with us and hear our message.
Do you offer a team discount?
For questions regarding team discounts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
