ENDORSEMENTS:
I have been working with Coach Linder for the past 4 years on hitting/slapping. She helped me with technique, skill, and the mental side of the game. I would not be the player I am today without Karen’s guidance, instruction, and patience with me. 15 year old softball athlete

My daughter attended a Karen Linder Slapping Clinic at Grand Slam 2 years ago and she has never looked back since. The instructors made the transition to slap hitting very easy to grasp and understand with the techniques that they taught. Parent of a 14 year old athlete
