Julie Standering's Minnesota Fastpitch Academy is a softball consulting organization committed to the development of Minnesota youth softballers of all ages through player programs for skill development, leadership development of youth and high school coaches and the support of softball organizations within Minnesota townships. This first of its kind consulting team features elite fastpitch softball training from the most experienced and accomplished fastpitch coaches and players ever assembled in the state of Minnesota.
The purpose of the Minnesota Fastpitch Academy is to build better women athletes and leaders by further expanding the scope and opportunity for social and athletic development for young women throughout Minnesota, through intense skills and sports psychology development from elite, world class female softball players and coaches. The organization is designed to expand the system of women's social and athletic development by creating a natural process for success mentoring through elite fastpitch softball training. The MFA sees an opportunity to play a significant role in the ongoing process of building momentum and enthusiasm for women's softball, while fostering interest and participation in Minnesota youth programs at all levels.
With an organization like Julie Standering's Minnesota Fastpitch Academy, Minnesota female youth athletes have an opportunity to exponentially excel their development. With more than 60 million softball players worldwide (60% of whom are women), and Minnesota being one of the highest states for amateur participation per capita, the landscape is ripe for a superior women's mentoring program. The MFA's athletes and professionals are excited with the prospect of giving back to Minnesota's communities through the development of women softball players, coaches, and programs.
