By Doug Fritz, 02/10/20, 12:45PM EST


For the 2019/2020 season, Pennsylvania Krunch 12U - Happy Valley is excited to announce it’s winter workout program.  The girls will be working out weekly at Nittany Valley Sports Centre.  Their program has been created by Lisa Banse, Olympian and former PSU Softball Coach.  Lisa has created a high intensity practice that focuses on improving skills such as base running, fielding, and throwing, but also, overall physical fitness and athleticism.  

In regards to hitting, the girls will be meeting with Rich Rogers weekly at The Bellefonte Sports Academy at the Rink.  Rich is a motivated and engaging instructor who utilizes The HitTrax System.  This system records key hitting performance indicators, such as exit velocity, line drive %, contact point, launch angle, etc. and allows the instructor to provide in the moment feedback to the athlete.  

Last but certainly not least, Vanessa Cooper will be working with our pitchers and catchers.  Vanessa has great intensity and will be focusing on improving blocking, lateral movement, footwork, explosiveness, and arm strength.

Go Happy Valley Krunch!
