Emmie Uitts officially founded The Playground- Indoor Softball Facility, in January of 2021, but has been dreaming about it since she was a sophomore in high school!
She attended Elkhorn High School in Elkhorn, Nebraska where she played for the Antler's Softball team from 2013-2016.
Emmie attended the University of Sioux Falls where she played softball and graduated with her Bachelor's degree in Entrepreneurial Studies in 2021.
In 2020, Emmie attended CatcherCon in Nashville, TN. This is the biggest catching event in the nation. There, she learned so much valuable information that she has brought back to the Midwest to share with to her athletes.
Emmie is also a Volunteer Assistant Coach at The University of Sioux Falls.
"I am so excited to get to work with these athletes! Softball is so much more than a sport, and I will work diligently to grow the game and develop these young players into awesome athletes and leaders not only on their teams, but in their communities!" - Emmie Uitts
Emmie specializes in catching & hitting instruction, as well as the mental game.
