Home of The Factory Fastpitch Club!
We are a San Diego based, fastpitch softball club for girls age 10 to 18. Our goal at The Factory is to help these young ladies develop their softball and life skills. We teach our players to be disciplined, strong-minded and confident. We prepare our players to play college softball with consistent, proven training techniques that are used by most of the top coaches in the country.
Come take a look and I'm sure you will be impressed with our club.
The Factory is proud to announce that Kailee Surprise-Shaver, a 2020 graduate from Mira Mesa High School, has verbally committed to continue her softball and academic career at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. Kai is an outstanding student at Mira Mesa where she is graduating with an academic distinction award and has lettered in field hockey, ran varsity track, and played varsity softball. She is also an assistant coach for the Mira Mesa Girls Softball 8U team.
Kai is a middle infielder and outfielder who brings speed to the game. She is a speedy slapper who can hit from both sides of the plate and has lead The Factory 16U Gold with the most stolen bases. She is a current member of The Factory 18U Premier team. She has had a very successful career playing for The Factory since the age of 12. This past season she was a member of The Factory 16U Gold team that finished 2nd place in the TCS Colorado Sparkler 16U Division. She has played on many successful teams and is a very versatile player. Her passion for the game, athleticism, and speed were something that caught the eye of the head coach at Canisius. Kai has had several opportunities to continue her academic and softball career but has ultimately chosen Canisius to pursue a degree in political science.
Kai is extremely excited to become a Canisius Griffin and play softball at the Division 1 level under the tutelage of head coach Kim Griffin in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
Congratulations Kailee from all of us at The Factory!
