More About Coach Cheri

I started coaching after playing DI college softball. I started as an assistant coach for a private high school in Oakland, California. I moved to Arizona and started my coaching career as the head coach at Williams Field High School in Higley, Arizona. I started the softball program and coached the BlackHawks for seven years. When the Mountain Pointe High School Head Coach position opened, I took the opportunity. Coaching at the high school I attended was amazing. However, I needed to step down to spend more time with my son whom was born after my first year coaching at MP. This decision lead me out of coaching a team for a year. That’s when I found CoachUp and started giving lessons. I have eighteen years of coaching at the high school level. I have also coached 16U club ball for the Arizona Storm and the Arizona Hotshots over the period of four years. I work with various softball players all over the valley from 6-23 years old and I love it! I also have an NFCA certification as well as an ASA certification.

I attended Mountain Pointe High School in Phoenix, Arizona. I earned the starting role at third base on the varsity team all four years. I earned MVP, all city, all region, and all state awards. I played for the Arizona Storm from 12U-18 GOLD, earning a scholarship to play softball at Mississippi State University. I played in the SEC for four years graduating in Educational Psychology. I was a two time captain of my college team while starting all four years at first and third base. I lead the team in walks and fielding percentage while leading the team to an SEC championship game. I am currently playing in a fast pitch league at Kiwanis Park in Tempe.

A typical session with a player would focus on the fundamentals of the game. Teach the proper throwing and catching mechanics. Explain proper hitting and bunting fundamentals. I would focus my lessons based upon the current level of the player. Typically starting with warming up and throwing.

Cheri is awesome! She is so knowledgeable, great at teaching and my daughter absolutely loves working with her. We plan on continuing to work with her as long as possible.

My daughter only had a short time with Coach Cheri whole on vacation in AZ. In just three weeks my daughter had improved her skills at first base. Wish we lived in AZ so she could have continued training with Coach because the results were amazing. Thanks Coach!!

Coach Cheri made my daughter comfortable from the start. Professional and prepared. Cheri's softball knowledge is apparent and I'm confident my daughter's play will improve.

My 14-YO daughter loved her first session with Coach Cheri, and I could see a difference in her mechanics already. Can't wait to keep working with her.

We loved meeting with Coach Cheri! She was so patient considering my daughter had never played. She was so explicit in her instruction and really evaluated my daughter well! We were so pleased! Thank you so much Coach Cheri!

We saw improvement with Ocean within the first session... what’s more important is my granddaughter thinks coach is awsume.. and can’t wait to go back... thank you coach

We were very happy with the training received from Coach Cheri. On time and informative, couldn't ask for more.

We really like coach Sherri! She has helped my daughter learn key fundamentals that she was not getting from her school coaches. We intended to stay with coach Sherri for quite awhile as we believe she will help my daughter become the best athlete she can be!

With one session she took my daughter back to the basics and had her throwing the correct way and ten times faster than she could already throw. We are very excited to see the advanced skills coach Cheri will teach our daughter in the near future. My daughter connected with Cheri immediately!

Coach Cheri is Awesome. Our grand daughter is really enjoying her lessons and is improving each time!

We have only had 2 sessions so far with Cheri but so far she is amazing! She is so good with my daughter and taught her so much already. Can't wait to see my daughters progress after all sessions are done! 😃

My daughter had her first session with coach Cheri today and what a great experience! As we walked to the car my daughter said, "That was fun! She's a good coach." She is looking forward to her next session and has excitedly shown me techniques from just one hour. Im so happy to have found coach Cheri!

Coach Cheri was amazing to work with! I highly recommend her and I plan to book more sessions in the future.

Cheri was great she worked all aspects of throwing and catching. My daughter has already improved in her pitching delivery.

Coach Cheri is just wonderful! She really knows how to start with the basics and build on her skills.

My daughter loves the training and is learning much more than she was by just playing. If your child is as competitive as mine book some sessions it will greatly improve her game

Found Coach Smith and my daughter loves her. Cheri brings playing experience at the highest level with coaching experience and really relates to my daughter. My daughter previously pitched until recently for city leagues and middle school teams and really never played any other position. She started playing 2nd base in the last 6 months on a club team and high school and needed some infield mechanics corrected. We've seen Cheri 3 times now and my daughter is making the proper tweaks each week after her sessions with Coach Smith at high school practice and she as well as myself are already seeing the difference. Coach Cheri is professional, energetic and quite frankly knows what she's doing. As long as my daughter is putting in the effort and wants to continue to strive to get better individually I will gladly keep bringing her to see Coach Cheri.

Cheri is awesome. My daughter had made massive improvements in just 2 lessons! She can't wait for more!

We just finished up 5 sessions with Coach Cheri and our experience was outstanding. My daughter is 7 years old and I know teaching younger kids good fundamentals can be difficult and Cheri did great with my daughter. She was very patient with her and did an amazing job of explaining things in a way that she could understand. We will definitely be doing more sessions with Coach Cheri in the future.

Cheri is great!!!

Coach Cheri a great coach. She has taught my daughter so much in her first 2 sessions! I would recommend her to anyone!

Coach Cheri is amazing. She made the lessons fun for my daughters and after one session I can already see much improvement in their performance. I would highly recommend coach Cheri.

She's awesome!!

We are seeing Coach Cheri for my daughter's throwing. Coach right away saw the incorrect way that she was throwing and suggested to make adjustments. After 2 sessions, we are seeing improvements already! The team coaches are seeing improvements as well. Coach Cheri is very personable and professional. Gives great encouragements and explains the mechanics (of throwing) very well for my daughter to understand. She's a 5-star coach!!!

I had the opportunity to coach with Coach Smith from 2014-2016 for Mountain Pointe High School (Arizona Division 1). She had extensive knowledge of ALL aspects of the game. She inspired her players, and because of her personal college playing experience and her down to earth attitude created an amazing environment to bring out "the very best" in everyone she coached!
