CJ's Perfect Practice Hitting Instruction
Hello! My name is Cathryn Johnson (“CJ”) Evans. My expertise and great passion is in helping fastpitch softball players realize their highest potential. I coached division I college softball for five years and am now looking for hard working athletes living in the Atlanta area who want to take their games to the next level. I offer private lessons for individuals and small groups as well as team hitting clinics.
Vince Lombardi once said, “Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.” I have spent many years perfecting not only my own softball swing, but also perfecting the swings of young hitters across the United States, passing on what I have learned from coaching greats such as Ralph Weekly, Mike Candrea, and Sue Enquist.
Whether I am coaching a 10 year old beginner or a 22 year old Olympic-bound college superstar, my basic philosophy is the same. I believe in teaching solid hitting fundamentals. My goal as a hitting coach is to help each athlete find her perfect and most powerful swing, and to work with her to practice that swing until it becomes very relaxed and natural.
Confidence develops when a hitter discovers her perfect swing and commits it to muscle memory through hard work, discipline, and perfect repetition. That confidence, grounded in a mastery of hitting fundamentals, is the key to realizing your highest potential as a hitter.
