Hey! I’m Ashley Burkhardt, a Midwest girl who lived out her dream of becoming a D1 softball player and, later, a professional athlete. SO MANY parents ask me how my parents were able to raise THREE daughters to become D1 athletes, and I truly believe it wasn't a coincidence. I’m ready to share with you a little bit of how WE did it (from the car-ride home conversations to traveling 4 hours a week to lessons) and give you some tips and tricks to help your daughter reach her dreams. I’m eager to also share with you interviews with some of the BEST softball influencers, parents and coaches to see how THEY did it...because, just like you, I’m eager to learn how to become the best version of myself, and learning from other people’s journeys is how we can make that happen. Buckle up! This is going to be a FUN ride!

    Get to know how an umpire thinks with Pro Victor Canales

    Get to know how an umpire thinks with Pro Victor Canales

    Most of the time umpires are misunderstood and it’s time to give them a voice! This week on the pod, we have professional and collegiate umpire, Victor Canales, sharing a bit of his experience behind the plate (the good, bad and sometimes ugly), the preparation that goes into this profession, insight of the struggle umpires endure and what the commonalities are between the best umpires in the game. Parents and coaches are a BIG reason why some of the best umpires quit the profession which is why we’re at an all-time low on good umpires. We need to fix that!

    The key to boosting your athlete’s confidence and problem-solving skills

    This one element can transform not only how your athlete performs under pressure but also how she carries herself in LIFE! I’m so glad I had parents and coaches teaching me this important skill early on so I could truly live out my potential on and off the field!

    Donnie Danklefsen: Winning teams, cultures and leaders leave clues

    Donnie Danklefsen: Winning teams, cultures and leaders leave clues

    Success looks different for everyone, but when it comes to work-ethic, leadership and straight up “guts” when a lot is on the line – the best teams do things similarly. Learn from 2023’s Division 3 National Championship Head Coach, Donnie Danklefsen, what it took from himself, his staff and most importantly his PLAYERS to hoist up the trophy this past season and how he was able to transform this program into something GREAT.

Ryan Bell Softballgirldad#LB4 ,

The Jocelyn Alo of Podcasts!!

I started working a overnight second job to assist with lessons and the select softball journey for my now 10YO daughter. Somehow I stumbled across this podcast and boy!! Was it like finding an unlimited treasure map. I go back and forth between new episodes and episodes from the start! This has provided so much knowledge for a myself as a father and I’ve even got my daughter listening on the way to lessons/practices ( shout out AJ Andrews and all the other fantastic role models you’ve had on). Thank you for providing the ultimate resource to help us stay weird and prepare for when the cleats come off!!

Cat is me ,

Best podcast ever

Started listening to this after your clinic recently. So beneficial to me as a younger athlete and I love it. Also AB is the best initials!!

Tracy Willemssen ,

I’m addicted

I found your show three days ago and have been binge listening ever since. I have learned more from you in the past three days than I have in the 5 years my daughter has been playing. I found you at such a critical time as she is just entering the recruitment process as a high school freshman. It is so refreshing to find a role model that is a talented athlete, a Christian and someone who is not afraid to say hard things!!
