Three main aspects of athlete DEVELOPMENT.

The focus of Colorado Softball Academy is to development the whole athlete – MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY. CSA is full-circle player development academy for athletes ages 4 years old through college age. Created and coached by former college softball players, our training and character development programs are designed to help our female-athlete achieve their on-field goals, while building self-confidence and serving as leaders in the community.

CSA competitive team programs will be structured very similar to college programs and will include – mental performance development, strength, conditioning and nutrition coaching, skill and team specific development, recruiting roadmap and support.

Why CSA?

Colorado Softball Academy is built for female athletes, by female athletes. All CSA Coaches have experience playing and coaching softball at a high level. All of our instructors are experts in their craft and are passionate about empowering the next generation of female-athletes. We care about building players as athletes, teammates, and community members. CSA provides opportunities through playing, training, coaching, umpiring, internships, and jobs. Our goal is to make CSA a home for female athletes to grow up through from age as we help prepare them for the college transition.

What Makes Us Different?

As part of the CSA Family, you are playing for the Academy, not a specific coach. All of the CSA full-time coaches work together to identify athletes, get to know their personal goals and help develop those athletes to meet their goals through our system. Are you tired of having to jump from team to team, or organization to organization? Us too, we are tired of seeing the current breakdowns. You will have all of the CSA Player Development Coaches (even if they aren’t the head coach of your team) in your corner for life. Sport is a platform to develop strong and confident women, both on and off the field – that is our goal….to prepare you for life and have a lot of fun doing so!

Head Coach Allie Schneider

A long-time student of the game, Allie Schneider has grown up immersed in the sport of softball. As the youngest of the girls in a family of seven siblings, Allie was eager to follow in the footsteps of her three older sisters who instilled in her a great passion for the game. Benefiting from the exposure to the game from a young age, Allie has been watching, learning, and playing softball since she was 5 years old. During her high school career, Allie was a standout as a utility player and program leader for the Brush Beetdiggers, making a state play-off bid 3 of her 4 years. From there, Allie was a recruited walk-on to the Colorado State University team where she continued to grow under the tutelage of Coach Jennifer Fisher. After discovering that CSU wasn’t where she was meant to be, Allie transferred to Metro State University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Human Performance & Sport, with a minor in Nutrition. For a few years, Allie focused on her academics but never lost her passion for the game and in 2018, she returned to the Beetdiggers coaching staff. Now entering her 5th year as a coach for this program, Allie strives to share her passion for the sport of softball and strength training with every athlete she works with and is hopeful to continue that into her coaching at CSA!
