Adding a professional-caliber to the already-impressive roster of softball coaches, YSPN360 is excited to announce that Kristyn Sandberg—catcher for the NPF’s Chicago Bandits—will be joining the team, bringing top-tier instruction to our community members!
From YSPN360’s CEO, Lou Birdt:
“We’re very excited to add Kristyn to our exclusive coaching staff. Kristyn’s accomplishments in the NPF are genuinely admirable and noteworthy. Her no-nonsense approach to catching will really resonate with our members who are looking to improve as catchers, and for the coaches who seek to help those young athletes. Kristyn is a huge pick up for YSPN360, and we’re proud to have her on our team.”
A No. 5 pick in the second round of the 2012 NPF Draft (USSA Pride), Coach Sandberg not only has the pro-level abilities and knowledge that will be a valuable asset to YSPN360, but she also has the coaching pedigree, too. Besides cracking home runs and holding her own behind the plate in the NPF, Coach Sanberg has spent time as the assistant softball coach for the Syracuse Orange.
