Comprehensive and Actionable

We worked with our team and advisors to make concepts and terminology a ‘second language’ for the Rapsodo community. The course is all online and video-based (more than 80 minutes of content), with a series of specific modules and dedicated quizzes. It goes beyond the definitions, giving you validated and immediate ways to implement this knowledge in your coaching.


The Rapsodo Softball Hitting Certification course is designed and delivered by Rapsodo data experts Seth Daniels and Brian Page, alongside other industry experts and Rapsodo-users from some of collegiate softball’s top programs. The goal of the course is not only to help you become an expert at analyzing Rapsodo data, but also show you how “those who do it best” are using technology and data to develop players, measure performance, increase competition in practice and conduct year-round training.

From master concepts to immediate applications, the Rapsodo softball hitting certification was developed to help you advance your knowledge and understanding of data. See immediate results in your player development program with a Rapsodo Certification.
