Stacy Jackson

About MeAbout

I'm a former athlete, a teacher and a coach

I was a leader at Hofstra University from 1991- 1995 where I set many records and received many awards: most wins (96), most starts (122), most innings pitched (885), most strikeouts (638), and no-hitters (6). I made Regional All-American all 4 years. In 2009, Hofstra retired my number (19) and in 2010 inducted me into their Hall of Fame. I finished my career as an active athlete playing professionally in Italy in 1995. I set the goal of becoming just as talented as a coach as I was as a player. I became the Pitching Coach at St. John's University in 1996 and then at Briarcliffe College from 1997 - 2002. I was the Hammonton High School Head Softball Coach from 2004 - 2012, where I guided my team to three South Jersey titles and nine division/conference titles. I was honored as Coach of the Year by the Philadelphia Inquirer in 2004 and 2005, by the Courier Post in 2008, and by the Atlantic City Press in 2004. I currently am the Head Coach of the 18U Mystics Gold travel softball team where I pride myself on preparing many athletes to achieve their goals of attending college and continuing their softball careers.

In the off-season of my senior year of high school I decided to take pitching lessons by Stacy Jackson because our star pitcher, Amanda Fernandez, had graduated. I haven’t pitched since I was 12 years old but I knew with my athletic ability and work ethic I would be able to lead our team to states. Stacy was recommended by a close friend of mine, but the records she set in college and her reputation with her players made me want to learn from such a knowledgeable person. In our first ever pitching lesson, Stacy had taught me a screwball and riseball, 2 pitches which I have never thrown in my life but ended up being my best 2 pitches in highschool and college. Within every lesson I pitched with her, I got stronger, sharper, and more confident. My first (and last) high school pitching season I recorded 19-1, threw 8 no-hitters, averaged 18 strikeouts/game, won our 4th straight Catholic academies title and won our 2nd straight District championship. For college, I was recruited to play 2nd base at University of Virginia, but once my coach saw me defeat top 10 school, Neshaminy HS, she wanted me to help pitch for the Cav’s. I stayed in contact with Stacy for any pitching advice she could give me. My first collegiate win was against Utah. And my most notable win was a complete game thrown against No. 11 ranked University of Oregon where we upset the Ducks 3-2.

Stacy Jackson is an incredible coach. Besides picking up speed on my fastball, she kept me fundamentally and mentally sound. She made me a better, more disciplined player and allowed me to play with and amongst the most competitive teams around the world.

Coach Stacy helped me a tremendous amount throughout my pitching career. When she first started to work with me, I had some minor mechanical issues. Within the first few weeks working with Coach Stacy, I could see improvements. She also helped me develop a change up, that I was struggling to get a hang of for a while. She is always positive when working with her athletes and she is very quick to pick up on problems in your mechanics. Coach Stacy was definitely a key factor in my life to get me to where I am now. I wouldn't be the same athlete without her.

My Resumé
After my family, fastpitch softball has been my passion ...

... and my game for as long as I can remember. From Vancouver, WA (graduated 1991) to Hofstra University (graduated in 1995 BBA -Marketing and 1997 MS - Education) to pitching in Italy on a professional team, my mental toughness helped me to become a strong pitcher and has helped guide me to who I am as a pitching instructor/coach today.

I love to teach the mechanics of pitching as well as explaining the mental part of the game of softball. There are many ways to pitch to a hitter and my personal goal as an instructor is that my pitchers not only have the speed and the spin of the pitch but that they are also equally equipped to handle the various pressures of the game. Fastpitch is constantly evolving and I stay up to date with technique and mechanics by analyzing each pitcher so that they can capitalize on their strengths. On occasion I give group lessons for outside organizations but I feel as if the pitcher really improves after having one-on-one sessions.
