Training also includes nutrition and regeneration techniques to improve performance and educate young athletes on how decisions off the field, between games, and at practices can improve their overall performance.

Introducing Emily Allard
After moving to Louisville, KY in 2018, Allard began training at CTSP and knew this would be her new home. Allard and CTSP are poised to elevate the training and teaching of softball student-athletes in the greater Louisville area. Allard, a former member of the National Professional Fastpitch’s Chicago Bandits, the 2015/2016 NPF Cowles Cup Champion, and graduated from Northwestern in 2014 as the school’s all-time, the Big Ten’s all-time and the NCAA’s 19th all-time record holder in stolen bases (154).
Allard was awarded the NFCA Golden Shoe in 2012, given to the nation’s best base stealer in all of Division I collegiate play. A four-time NFCA All-Region and All-Big Ten selection, Allard boasted a career .402 batting average that included a single-season record-breaking .491 average during her sophomore season.
Allard slapped 306 hits on her way to 180 runs in her Northwestern career. After being named the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NPF draft, the Northern California native was named to the All-NPF team as a rookie. In 2015, Allard was awarded the Rally Spikes Award for the most stolen bases. With a career cut short by injury, Allard turned down an invitation to try out for the Canadian Olympic Team and ended her career with a batting average above .350 in four seasons of NPF play.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies and her master’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Northwestern University in 2013 and 2014, respectively. Allard also co-founded her own company, Be The Momentum, centered around the skill of slapping in softball. Allard works full-time for the National Fastpitch Coaches Association as the Marketing & Sponsorships Specialist.
