I am blessed that I got to take pitching lessons with Talya. After a successful college career at the University of Kentucky, I am currently pitching in the NPF for the USSSA Pride and I know Talya was a huge part of my success. She has always been professional, prompt and attentive during my instruction time. She is a great pitching instructor and I am forever grateful to have worked with her.

It's easy to say that Coach T was one of the best coaches that I have had over my many years of softball. Her love of the game shines when she coaches. She inspires athletes to improve their game in many aspects. As a pitcher, she changed my game by enhancing many of my pitches. She was able to quickly recognize where I needed improvements and helped me make the adjustments every way possible. I would highly recommend Coach T for anyone needed help in any part of the game.

Jamie Savat, Mother of Pitching Student Rayleigh

Having moved from the softball mecca of Southern California, Talya DiGirolamo, was the only instructor we could find to continue our daughters pitching growth without trying to change her whole foundation of pitching. Talya had some of the best training and she passes on her knowledge, techniques, and passion to the girls. We drove an hour one way, just to make sure we had the best! Thanks Talya!!

I was a member of the Agnes Scott College (ASC) Softball team from 2006-2010. Coach T came on as an assistant coach my senior year. I did not really have a softball background, I was just a curious student at a D3 school with athletic ability that showed up to a try out. I can honestly say that in the one year that I was able to work with Coach T, she brought a professionalism and softball knowledge to the program that was greatly needed. Later, when she was named head coach and the team started winning, I was not surprised. She turned a softball program that was accustomed to losing into conference champions. ASC's success during her tenure is a true testament to her ability to coach all levels. She is quickly able to assess a player's skill set and tailor a training program according to a person's ability. In addition to her coaching acumen, she is a generally pleasant person to be around. I would highly recommend her for your softball needs.
