“Why I am a Pitching Coach…”
“I am a pitching coach because of the kids and the strong passion I have for softball fast pitch and the sport itself. There is no better feeling than teaching a child the importance of discipline, hard work, team play, commitment, determination and the courage it takes to win, not only in sport but in life itself.”
Lewis (Coach Lew) Bell, founder, and CEO of Lew’s Fastpitch Pitching Lessons specializes in private softball fastpitch pitching lessons for girls. Serving Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C., We provide private fast pitch pitching lessons for girls and my client base includes girls from the ages of 8 to 19 years of age. The training progresses from recreational ball to travel ball to college. Our main goal is to provide character building, leadership skills and help enhance girls self-esteem, especially those with economic challenges. This will enable them to qualify for their junior varsity and varsity softball teams in high school and to obtain college scholarships, and potentially qualify for the Olympics.
Currently, I am coaching girls for the 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U Travel Teams. Additionally, for the past ten (10) years, I have been a pitching Coach for numerous girls ranging from the ages of eight (8) to nineteen (19). Fast-Pitch is my passion and my goal is to pass this passion on to the next generation.
