  • The Slap Shop

    The Slap Shop was founded in July 2013. Ashley called up Tara and both discussed the need for instruction dedicated to slappers that was fun, energetic and would take a player’s game to the next level.The art of slapping is a necessary and an integral part of the game of softball. We are passionate about promoting the triple threat player: a speedy athlete who can bunt, slap, hit for power and essentially change the game with one pitch.
