PFX Athletics teamed up with Special Olympics Florida for a Softball Training course for their coaches. Special Olympics trainers focused on the rules of the game, while PFX staff focused on developing skills for these athletes.
PFX Staff put the Special Olympic Athletes through offensive and defensive drills, and then put on a little home run derby for the participants!
