PREPARING FOR THE COMPETITION

I get ready for a game first mentally. Mentally be able to visualize it and to feel it within my body to become one with the ball.
Visualize moving faster than I did the last time, being able to see the ball off the barrel of my bat and feel what that feels like.
Then in preparation on the field, as soon as I put my cleats on I am in a whole other world; nothing else exists except for being one with that ball.

The Spring Games // The Softball Event of the Year

The Spring Games, founded in 2008 by Dr. Dot Richardson, are held in Clermont, Florida at the Legends Way Ballfields at the National Training Center. They are a series of collegiate softball games open to all divisions of colleges and universities across the US and Canada. Each year, Legends Way Ballfields welcomes teams to sunny Central Florida to kick-start their seasons during the months of February, March, and April and, for some, get their first “go” at competition after what is, for some, a long winter.

In 2014, the program included 275 teams. In 2015, we are excited to welcome over 310 teams to the Games. PFX Athletics caters to each school’s individual requests such as when they want to play, how many games they want to play, and even WHO they would like to play. We work with you to exceed your expectations for the event. Our goal: to make The Spring Games the biggest and, most importantly, the BEST spring games in the United States.

We Make Our // Teams Happy

Each year hundreds of teams enjoy the competition of the Spring Games.
