Softball Training/Instruction

The Yard also offers softball lessons!

The Yard Baseball Academy offers softball lessons with lead instructor Zoe Galindo! She specializes in hitting and slap hitting.

If you are looking to get softball instruction, we ask that you contact Zoe directly as she has her own schedule outside of ours at the academy.




The Yard is also excited to offer pitching lessons for softball as well with instructor Kalin Rooney! Kalin also does hitting and infield instruction.
