Athletes ages 13 and up will have an opportunity to get timed and measured in areas that are important to further their softball career. For years college coaches have used these same measurables in the recruiting process. It is never too early to start working on areas where they need improvement. These metrics will be recorded and certified by Fastpitch Masters LLC then distributed to all college coaches who participate in our camps nationwide. Athletes will receive a copy of their metrics along with other helpful information which will give them an idea of where they stand on a national level. The Metrics Combine is a great way for athletes to show college coaches their skills through numbers.

20 Yard Dash

Athletes will be timed on their foot speed for 20 yards. Why 20 yards? 20 yards is the equivalent to 60 feet and is the distance between bases. It is important to know how explosive a player is when exiting the batter's box or stealing a base.
