Our daughter, Izzy, is 14 and a fairly advanced pitcher who now plays on a high level travel club team. We see a pitching coach in our area twice per month but her velocity plateaued and she just could not break through. Late last year, we tried to get in touch with several pitching coaches who can take a look at her mechanics and suggest a few tweaks but no one would respond. Then we stumbled onto Christie via her Facebook posts. We are so lucky to have her coach Izzy! From their very first meeting, Izzy came back with rave reviews and that she LOVED working with Christie. They did a video session, going Izzy's mechanics and what improvements can be made right away that will help her gain speed. She gave Izzy a plan of action that unlocks her power through drills and explosive training exercises. Christie's energy is always super positive which works well for Izzy. She also loves to incorporate all kinds of training aids. We've now done 3, 1 hour, sessions with Christie and we're going to keep coming back for more! Izzy wants to try the speed classes Christie offers on the weekends. Thanks to Christie, Izzy was able to make it on a team that she thought would be impossible. We've seen almost immediate improvement and Izzy is very motivated and works hard to implement Christie's plan.

Christie is a great softball coach who helped our daughters significantly improve their pitching over the years they've worked with her. It would be hard to find someone more knowledgeable about softball pitching. She excels in matching the training to the needs of the player. Our daughters are two years apart, but very different physically and mentally and she adjusted her coaching approach accordingly. She also connected with them emotionally to help them develop confidence and meet their full potential "in the circle." Despite being the smallest player in our league, our oldest finished her high school pitching career earning 1st team all-league honors. With coaching support from Christie, our younger daughter is looking forward to following in her footsteps in her next two seasons.

Christie McCoy was an incredible softball player (understatement), but she may even be a better teacher.
She knows the mechanics, but more importantly she knows how to teach them, and tailors her instruction to the individual athlete.
I'm very grateful we found Christie to help my daughter, and after 3+ years my confidence that we found the right coach couldn't be higher.

Christie instructed my niece years ago and recently brought my daughter to her. In just a couple of lessons, my daughter (8yrs) is pitching with velocity and accuracy. In addition to her effective instruction, Christie is great with the kids and challenges them in between lessons with "homework". It's equivalent to a week worth of instruction after just a half hour lesson.

I strongly recommend Christie because she is an amazing coach and mentor.  Christie dramatically improved my daughter's pitching and hitting. My daughter's velocity and command increased, and she moved from the bottom to top of the line up for her All Star team. Most importantly, Christie boosted my daughter's poise on the mound, confidence at the plate, and love for softball.  Christie has had the same positive impact on two of my daughter's All Star team mates--all 3 adore Christie and have become great softball players and team mates!

My daughter loves working with Christie! She has both the expertise as well as the right demeanor to be a highly effective instructor. In addition to her in person work, she has provided numerous take home practice assignments that reinforce her lessons. And my daughter actually does them! Even better, the results are fast and lasting. I highly recommend Christie.

Christie is the best. She is an amazing coach my daughter is 9 and has been going to her since she was in 8u and now she is 10u. She is so detailed and even after a few lessons my daughter has improved so much in her pitching style. She really explains everything so easily my daughter picks it right up. I love the extra help tools she gives us as well to practice at home. She has great interaction with my daughter and listens to any questions and concerns she has, myself as well. She really knows her stuff. If you are looking for a GREAT pitching and hitting coach I defiantly recommend Christie!!!

Christie knows what she is doing and is very good at what she does.  My daughter goes to her for pitching and hitting lessons.  She will customize a lesson based on feedback from us or any current concerns.  She is firm with my daughter when she needs to be but also supportive in a nurturing way.   She knows how to break down a pitch in order to teach it and can spot an area for improvement with a swing after a couple of hacks.  She often gives my daughter "homework" between lessons and checks in on those assignments at the next lesson.  
She stays on-time with her schedule and the on-line booking tool is a breeze to use.  I can't say enough good things about Christie.

Christie has been coaching my daughter (11 yo) for over a year now and she has been her best coach by far.  We moved from southern California where most of the softball coaches are men and have never played an inning of fast pitch softball.  It was refreshing to find a coach that has played the game (even professionally!) and has all the necessary experience and patience to train girls of all ages.  My daughter has improved both in pitching and hitting under her guidance.  She has gained about 8 mph on her fastball since moving up here and she went from batting last on her All-star team to second by the end of the 2015 tournament season.  I highly recommend Christie if your daughter is ready to work hard and advance to the next level in softball!
