Inside Pitch is excited to announce the latest addition to our team. Please Welcome Kayla Struiksma. Kayla is now available for fastpitch lessons. She will offer all facets of the game including pitching. Kayla Struiksma (Pronounced strikes-ma) was born and raised in Everson, WA. She attended school at Nooksack valley and was apart of their fastpitch program from 3rd grade until graduating in 2014. After being involved in Nooksack Valley's fastpitch program, Kayla grew a love for pitching at an early age and excelled quickly. Quitting all other sports to mainly focus on fastpitch was the easiest decision she would ever make. Kayla was honored to be the starting varsity pitcher for Nooksack throughout her high school career. She trained year round, played on multiple travel teams, and traveled thousands of miles cross country to try to gain exposure and to make a name for herself. To gain more exposure, she signed up for a recruiting website. Brandon Hundt with Inside Pitch, filmed and put together her recruiting viedo. She gained lots of exposure and got in contact with multiple coach's. During Kayla's senior year in 2014 she was offered a scholarship to play at Mayville State University in North Dakota. Shortly after signing her letter of intent, Kayla had a career ending shoulder injury and was devesated knowing her dreams to make a name for herself had come to an end. Three shoulder surgeries later, Kayla realized she may never be able to play again. Knowing this, she wanted to still be involved with fastpitch. Kayla was an assistant coach for Noooksack Valley Middle school, Avalanche Travel Team, and has been a private pitching, fielding, and hitting coach for the last three years. Kayla is excited to pass her knowledge of the game down to the young ladies that want to prosper and accomplish their dreams.

Jett is dreaming of sunshine and fresh cut grass; dirt on your pants, sunflower seeds and bubble gum, running so fast your helmet comes off, throwing the perfect relay. He doesn't know it yet but he will soon enough. @inside.pitch will have to do for now.

@joziah_mccloud getting some video work in with Coach @hirschkornfit . This kid is a prime example of just loving the game and wanting to work hard. We see him almost every day, some times at 5am before school. Effort is one of the controllable's that requires not talent. Get after it this week ya'll!
