Former pitching great and two-time Olympic champion Michele Smith is coming to Haarlem, the Netherlands for a pitching coach master class. Do not miss this unique opportunity and register now! Limited number of participants can attend this clinic.

From 1992 until 2002, Smith was a starting pitcher for Team USA and a two-time gold medalist during the 1996 and 2000 Olympics. She won three World championships and two Pan-Am Games. Between 1993 and 2008, Smith played in the Japanese Pro Softball League where she won eight national championships to add to her 8 MVP awards.

Dutch National Softball Team Coach Craig Montvidas about Michele Smith:

During her playing days, a great Softball player and terrific person. Now retired as a player, she has become a great Softball analyst (television commentator) but still remains a terrific person. Michele is originally from my home state, New Jersey. Because of this, I always followed her Softball career closely. What a fantastic athlete during her College and Professional career. One of the best Softball pitchers of all time as well as an outstanding hitter, she played for Team USA's Olympic Team in 1996 and 2000 (Gold medal for Team USA) and finished her career in the Japanese professional league. Her knowledge of the game is extremely advanced, but her ability to teach and communicate with any player or coach regardless of their level of knowledge is a special gift. I can strongly encourage anyone who might be passionate about Fastpitch Softball to attend this Masterclass. You will not be disappointed by this ISF Hall of Famer.
