Hello Softball family!
I’m Coach Gentile or Coach Courtney. I am a former Division 1 softball coach and I am the Softball Director and your Customer Success Specialist here at gameSense.
Like Coach P, who you met last week, I grew up with a bat and ball in my hands. In some capacity, I have played every position on the field; but pitching, 1B, and OF are the ones that I played in College at The Ohio State University.
I realized when I was about 13 that I wanted to coach softball in some capacity. I always tried to lead vocally and by example on the field. It wasn’t until I got to be a Junior in college did I really want to pursue coaching at the collegiate level. You are at your most vulnerable and influential years from 18-22 and I wanted to be that coach that could help mentor not only on the field but off as well. I’ve just recently started coaching travel ball again and more passionate than ever to be that person for these young women to look to and to teach them how to be independent, empowered young women and to teach them what it will take to get to the next level of their careers in softball.
I am grateful to be a part of this gameSense family as I truly believe technology and pitch recognition is going to be the wave of the future here in our game that we all love so much. I wish I would have had it when I played!
