Advanced Fastpitch Academy 2020-2021 Tryouts (16/18 Showcase)

AFA - based out of Overland Park, KS - is holding tryouts for our elite 16u and 18u travel showcase teams for the upcoming 2020-2021 fall and spring/summer seasons. These tryouts are for top level players only – players should have experience playing A level ball, have a desire to play collegiately (at any level), have excellent work ethic with willingness to train year-round, and ability/willingness to travel nationally to showcase tournaments.

The AFA showcase teams are planning to participate in premier college showcase events nationally including events in Georgia, Tennessee, Indiana, Florida and potentially California (pending COVID uncertainties).
  • The most advanced winter training program in the Kansas City metro area. Staff coach-led training program (Nov-Feb) with weekly sessions each month focused on specific skills (base running, corner/middle infield, defensive strategies, hitting)
  • Dedicated academy recruiting coordinator and recruiting service
  • Attention to detail on specifics that attract college coach attention - measurables, video, game IQ and strategy development
  • Private outdoor practice fields
  • Private indoor training facility with weekly practices (in-season and winter). Tools such as HitTrax and Rapsodo
  • Staff coach-led practices (no daddy ball)
  • Private instruction available if desired but not required
  • Discounts for AFA players and families on AFA hosted camps and training clinics such as IMPACT Arm, IMPACT Catcher, IMPACT Pitcher, and Infield Bootcamp
  • Character and leadership development program during winter training (Brave on Life’s Decisions - BOLD)
The results of this unique approach - 100% of high school seniors in the program are either committed or have offers to play softball collegiately. This is a testament to the type of players the program develops.
