Local opportunities are designed for those players that can make a weekly commitment to instruction based at two facilities in the Greater Boston area.




These courses are only open to players with high school graduation years of 2023 and 2024.


Weekly class schedule:


Veteran courses are only open to those who have previously taken a course with Protect the Plate.  Rookie courses are designed for players who are new to the program.  If a player has not previously taken a course with us, she must register for one of the rookie offerings.  It is worth reiterating that rookie does not mean that the player is new to the position.  Before committing to the program, a player must have at least one year of catching experience at the travel ball level.  All courses are designed for catchers who are serious and committed to improving and refining their skill set behind the plate.

Important notes

Protect the Plate began as a way to use my passion and knowledge in order to make means work financially as a coach, so I understand economic hardship. If the cost of registration is the reason your daughter can not attend a training session, please reach out to Jo and we will find a way to make it work. My job is to teach, grow, and inspire the next generation of softball players, and I do not want financial reasons to come in the way of your daughter being able to have this experience.


Refund policy

For any athlete that must cancel more than one week prior to the start date of the course, a full credit will be applied to the credit card that is used to pay the deposit. Any registration withdrawn within one week of the start date of the course will not receive a refund for the deposit. If an athlete must withdraw from the course once it has started, the entire tuition must be paid.
