PFP VARSITY SCHOOL INFORMATION
The Varsity School was created by Denise Davis in 2005 and has been the backbone of training and culture at PFP for 15 years. Directed by Denise Davis and Kerri Jacklets, the Varsity School delivers energy in a robust manner to a select group of pitchers, hitters and catchers who want to train at the highest level. We seek out players who have similar work ethic, curiosity, engagement and athletic goals. Athletes who apply will be hand selected by Denise Davis.
During Varsity School, we will tackle player development from every angle. Data, video analysis and classroom sessions will fully support the total development of each player who is accepted. We will dive into physical, mental and sport performance curriculum and push towards a deeper understanding of how all three areas impact game day. Specific areas of development will include mechanics enhancement, timing work, speed measurements, plate strategy, routine and reset design, video analysis, alternate pitch development and sequencing. Students will learn high-level concepts in an intense academic setting with expectations that match that of a college softball program. We will ramp up from technical to tactical as we navigate through the Varsity School, finishing with Live Hitting and Pitching scenarios.
This is a full-service program that leaves no stone unturned.
To train consistently with Denise Davis, you must be a Varsity School Player. This program is on the cutting edge of training and development. The students will be constantly monitored and well-cared for. Pitchers train for 2 hours and catchers for 2.5 hours each week. This is the ideal combination of group and private training. It will cater to individual issues as well as competitive needs. There are also private training choices which include several options of lesson packages. There are also special sister rates.
In addition to all of the dynamic offerings of the Varsity School, there are additional benefits:
All Varsity Students receive yearly pass to Virtual Varsity! Video replays of pitching and hitting classes.

Opportunity! Enrolled high school pitchers and catchers will also have the opportunity to earn and learn as Junior Instructors at various PFP clinics. A great part-time job and way to give back to youth pitchers and
In summary, VARSITY = more hours at PFP, more individualized attention, more structured assignments, more seminars, great speakers.
Moving forward within our Varsity program we will always be ready and prepared to deliver our academy virtually in a combination of presentation, collaboration, group work, skill analysis, connections to the best players in the game and recruiting education. We will be adaptable in unforeseen circumstances/natural disasters/pandemics similar to our experience with Covid 19.
PFP will be testing metrics that are applicable to pitchers, catchers and hitters twice during the academic year. The tests will be done in small groups in a variety of available time slots. We will measure our athletes pre and post the training season. These tests will raise the bar! Let's assess, set goals, work hard, then reassess! This data is vetted and will also be useful for your personal recruiting profile.
