Bristow Returns to College Coaching

University California Riverside Cindy Bristow Pitching Coach

In the summer of huge coaching moves, Cindy Bristow, co-founder of Softball Excellence, will become the Pitching Coach for the University of California – Riverside, starting October 5th. “Family was an import factor in my decision to make this change. Riverside is my hometown, my Mom is 90 and this position gives me an incredible opportunity to return to the college game and spend some quality time with my Mom,” said Bristow.

While Cindy will be living and working in Riverside, California, she’ll still continue her work with Softball Excellence. Softball Excellence isn’t going anywhere. Our Softball Excellence team, including Cindy, will still be delivering the same high quality educational products that we always have including the College Pitching & Hitting Summits!

Added Bristow: “I am very excited and honored to join the UC Riverside softball staff. I would like to thank head coach Nikki Palmer for her faith and confidence in giving me this opportunity and allowing me to continue my work with Softball Excellence. I’m looking forward to getting back into college coaching, in my home town, surrounded by family. It’s a new chapter in my life that will only make me better and I’m excited to get started”.
