College Prep Softball Combine

College Prep Softball Combine Brought to You By Hitters Count Training Facility Powered By OA Parisi Speed School

We are proud to bring you this one-of-a-kind softball event to Portland and the Maine Athletic Complex.  We recognized a need to have a combine specifically for softball players to get some objective, measurable and independent results in some key areas.   

We also are excited to announce that we will have college softball coaches in attendance for the high school workouts!  We will have a full list of schools attending very shortly.

This will be the perfect event for softball players for the following ages;

  • 8th Grade:  This is perfect to get a baseline on results to see where your focus should be during off-season training and also see how you measure up vs other athletes your age. 
  • 9th-12th Grade:  This event will get you the objective and independent results you need to pass along to the colleges you are interested in.  What better way to add a ton of value to your online profile!  Plus these will be certified by OA Parisi Speed School!  We will also have college coaches attending the event!!

Why Getting Certified Times are Important.

Do you want to get noticed by college coaches?  One of the best ways to get noticed is to have the data and measurements which are certified by an independent organization.

What better way to add great value to your Collegiate profile than to have all of the important results a college coach would be looking for in addition to your talent on the field?  Hitters Count Training Facility has what you need AND we have partnered with OA Parisi Speed School to offer certified results which can be placed in your individual profile for college. 

College Coaches in Attendance

As a prior collegiate athlete and now being heavily involved in the recruiting process, there is no better way to assess athletes than in person and under stress.  We will have college coaches in attendance watching both the OA workout portion plus the softball specific drills being run at Hitters Count Training Facility.  

The college coaches will be provided with a list of players participating in the event plus we will forward your online profile should you have one.  This will allow the college coaches to review your profile well before coming to the event so they can zone in on who may have the qualifications to attend their school.
