Welcome to my website.
My name is Eva Voortman. I am a professional softball athlete and graduated Master of Science in High Performance Coaching from the VU University Amsterdam.
My softball career started at Centrals, De Bilt, which is now also the hosting club for the Eva Voortman Academy. The academy focuses on modern training programs based on both my experiences as a player and my background as a movement scientist. By sharing my knowledge and passion with other athletes I intent to provide them with extra tools to develop and fullfill their own dreams.
On this website you can find articles about pitching from a scientific and on field experience point of view. If you have questions, comments or anything else you want to share, feel free to contact me.
