In 2015, PFX Athletics introduced a new girls softball program: a college softball prep team called “the Athletics.” The goal of the Team PFX girls softball program is to instill the following character traits and skills in young softball athletes:

  • Independence
  • Exploration
  • Dreaming
  • Courage
  • Growth
  • Leadership
  • Strength
  • Confidence

so that these young ladies ultimately develop into what we lovingly refer to as “flying lions” as they venture into college and, eventually, the “real world.” Picture that!

The primary goal and objective of this program is to help these girls softball student-athletes identify, plan, and execute their life plans for college and beyond. For us, this program is about more than just “getting a college scholarship” for the girls; it’s much bigger than that (though it is, for most, the primary objective that draws athletes to our program). Key elements of participation on Team PFX include developing softball skills around communication and commitment. As professionals in business, PFX Athletics recognizes that these skills will support the graduates of the Athletics program long after they stop playing softball.

While we like winning very much and it drives us as individuals and coaches, we recognize that this program, this sport, this opportunity to connect with these young ladies is about much more than just winning girls softball games and getting college scholarships. It’s about life. It’s about the future of our nation. It’s about making a difference.
