Skill Development

Pitching development will be led by our top-of-the-line pitching coaches: Brittanee Grove and Kelsey Kingery. Together they have evolved their pitching intelligence from various pitching instructors and their own personal experiences which are shown here.

Iowa Angels will also team up with Darren Dubsky who was a men’s fastpitch ASA All-American, national MVP, and recently inducted into the Des Moines Fastpitch Hall of Fame. He has given multiple lessons throughout the years and has signed many pitching clients to different universities such as the University of Michigan and Creighton University among others. Darren currently resides in Nebraska, and will be instructing at Sports Plex West once a month for the Iowa Angels.

Twelve, D1 Sports Training sessions sessions will be included for each individual on the Iowa Angels during the fall season. This is a speed, agility, and strength program that develops the players into an all-around athlete. These sessions can be used at various times throughout the season, but must be used by October 31st. They will not be rolled over into any other type of sessions including lessons, winter/spring skill sessions, or personal training. For further information please see the SportsPlex West website.
