The Packaged Deal has launched a virtual learning platform for softball called Softball School.

Softball School, which will take place over the course of six weeks, will offer live classes three times per day from Monday through Friday, in an effort to continue softball instruction and mental training during the coronavirus outbreak. Classes are slated to begin March 23.

"During this unprecedented time, it has allowed us to take a step back and gain a new perspective on how we can creatively reach the softball community," The Packaged Deal co-founder Amanda Scarborough said in a statement. "We are looking forward to bringing routine, joy and excitement through sport, even during a time when sport has been taken away from so many of us."


In addition to The Packaged Deal co-founders Scarborough, Jen Schroeder and Morgan Stuart, classes will be taught by a host of current and former softball stars including Monica Abbott, Kayla Braud, Lauren Chamberlain, Sue Enquist, Meghan King, Haylie McCleney, Erin Miller and Natasha Watley.

You can register for Softball School here beginning March 20.
