One of the best decisions i’ve made. I’ve been a pitcher for most of my career and have grown over time, but I hit a wall. I wasn’t getting recruited like I wanted, and stopped progressing like I should’ve been. I asked Whitney to take a look at me when I was throwing 55mph. Two years later, I’ve gained nearly 10mph and gained better control. I’m now a D1 athlete and truly couldn’t have achieved my dream without the help of Whitney’s wizardry.- Samantha Fohrman, University of New Mexico
… and we’ve worked with several coaches of club teams and former Gopher’s players. Alyssa knows her stuff and can quickly correct bad mechanics and form. She has feedback on every rep, but it’s delivered with a positive connotation and players really respond well to her feedback. She converted my daughter from an average hitter into a really good hitter. My daughter’s bat speed is up, she hits the ball harder, her mechanics are better, and her stats are also way up. However, my favorite thing about Alyssa is that she is a born leader. She is always early, ready to work, and has a really positive vibe to her. She is a wonderful role model for younger players. I highly recommend Alyssa to anyone who has an athlete looking to improve.- Brent Gilbertson
Whitney is passionate about pitching and passionate about your daughter improving as a pitcher. Not every drill or technique clicks with every pitcher and Whitney is excellent at finding a way to make that light bulb go off for every pitcher to understand what she is trying to teach. Whitney molds pitchers with a positive approach mixed with accountability for correct form and technique, she doesn't allow you to take a pitch off.- Brad Strom
Alyssa Reina coached my daughter for 5 plus years and she was always positive while teaching in a way that my daughter understood. Alyssa was always willing to answers questions and review video also throughout our time together. I could tell that she really cared about my daughter as not only a player but also as a person. I would highly recommend Alyssa as a coach to any and all softball players!
Whitney has been my daughters pitching coach from the beginning and I can not begin to describe how lucky we have been to find her. A few of my own words to describe Whitney is: smart, passionate, caring and patient. All things required in great coaches. I asked Ada what she thought of Whitney as her coach and she wrote: "What I like about my pitching coach Whitney is that she doesn't just tell you what to do and expects you to do it every time perfectly, she makes sure you know what to fix and if you don't understand she’ll explain it more and really helps you to understand what you're doing. Another thing I like about her is that she really knows what she's talking about because she was a pitcher at NDSU. I just can't say enough about her, she is a great person and a great coach.” Ada and I both highly recommend Whitney to anyone who wants to learn to pitch or wants to take their pitching to the next level.- Travis and Ada Gerhardt
