About our Fall Program
High Impact Fastpitch is a year-round, softball development program, focused on training and preparing players to compete at the Minnesota high school, elite club, and college levels.

Positive Coaching Alliance – Brian McBride: Being A Good Teammate Makes You Better
Team sports are an important outlet for young athletes to learn leadership skills. In this interview with the Positive Coaching Alliance, professional soccer player Brian McBride details how teamwork can help build better athletes and adults.
Here, McBride says, the biggest factor in becoming a successful athlete is having “the knowledge that you can always get better.” Combining the knowledge of getting better with the drive to get better will certainly help an athlete succeed, but one crucial part that ultimately leads to achieving peak performance is supporting and leading a team. Those two factors plus being a supportive teammate lends itself to success based upon fun, learning to get better through support of teammates, and leadership.
