Welcome to My Rally Campaign
- My name is Mitch Thomas and I am the Softball Director at The Hitting Zone located in O'Fallon, MO. This is our 2nd year as a program and we are coming off some success and failure.
- With the cost of training, travel, games, equipment and uniforms we are seeking donations to help off-set necessary cost and allow our program to grow that will provide the stability to obtain and retain young athletes.
Why I'm Raising Funds
- As our athletes continue to strive towards the ultimate goal to continue to play beyond high school. Our athletes are looking for more ways to provide opportunity to connect with coaches. The funds from this fundraiser are designed to provide the High School age groups with technology to help them advance exposure. Funds will be used to purchase items such as MEVO camera set up that allows for video streaming that will be tied to our social media. https://getmevo.com/ Purchasing additional storage to provide editing software to create clips for coaches. Additionally, we would use funds to assist in paying for Tournaments for exposure.
How I Got Here
- I am currently in my 12th season coaching softball. I started to coach my daughter in 2006. I assisted the coaches as I used my experience coaching baseball, giving instruction, and my own learnings while playing college baseball. I have found joy in coaching softball by the efforts that female athletes offer. Female athletes take pride in pushing to become better in efforts not to let others down. This same effort is also one that as coaches we have to be careful in how we approach our athletes. I have learned the baseball or coaching boy mentality will not work for young female athletes. This has given me patience and has allowed me to grow as a coach. This growth has provided me an opportunity to coach NCAA Softball and I am now entering my 6th season.
- In 2018/2019 Season we have compiled a roster of 12 dedicated freshman and sophomores surrounding St. Louis and St. Charles County. We have several players that will travel 60 min one way to participate in our program. Several of our athletes have been recognized as young players both on and off the field. We are excited about the opportunity to coach these young players. They are hungry for growth.
