Bringing a load of talent and knowledge, not to mention her two gold medals, YSPN360 is elated to announce that Allyson “Ally” Carda, a current member of the US Women’s National Softball team, is joining the coaching staff!
From YSPN360’s CEO, Lou Birdt:
“Having a caliber of player like Ally Carda join the YSPN360 staff is going to be a real treat for our members. Her vast experience and success as a two-way player will motivate and inspire our young members to chase their dreams. Ally’s coaching acumen will enhance our already diverse and deep softball instructional content and will continue to enable YSPN360 to strengthen and improve the youth sports experience for our members.”
On top of her National Team experience, Ally joins YSPN360 from the professional ranks, too, adding another great NPF asset to the softball community like her Chicago Bandits teammate Kristyn Sandberg. A native of Elk Grove, California, Ally also is no stranger to high-level coaching. For the past three seasons, she has helped the Cal Poly softball program hold steady in the Big West Conference as an assistant coach.
