Does that logo in the background look familiar?

If you know NCAA DI softball...

...... then you know what this is - and the level Megan Ink has played and coached against.  Now we get that level of coaching only here with Clovis Rockets.......

We are Led by Megan Ink

Megan brings 15 years of collegiate softball coaching experience including 12 years as the top assistant and catching coach for Division I Eastern Kentucky University.  Megan also spent 3 years with San Jose City College where she coached the 2014 Diamond Sports Catcher of the Year.  During her college career, Megan was named to the All-Ohio Valley Conference Team while playing for Eastern Kentucky University. 

The Clovis Rockets proudly had Megan Ink leading us as our 18 Gold head coach for four years.  She still mentors and works with the Gold coaching staff and players, but she has taken primary coaching responsibilities for coaching our newest 10U team to be able to spend more time with her own daughters also playing the sport we love.

Coach Megan provides DI level coaching as well as unparalleled college recruiting insight along with established relationships with current colleges seeking to recruit talented players.  Megan doesn't just work with our flagship team, the 18 Gold.  Megan works with the entire Rockets coaching staff and teams.  She attends practices for the younger teams as well as offering free clinics to begin teaching D1 level softball skills at the earliest opportunity.  She holds private hitting, catching, and pitching lessons as requested.  The Rockets, and the Central Valley as a whole, benefit from the value Megan Ink brings to softball and competitive travel fastpitch.  We are excited at the continued direction our program and our sport will head under Megan's guidance and leadership.

Student Athletes

Softball is a sport, and our players are elite athletes.  But they are STUDENTS first, and Clovis Rockets athletes must perform at the highest level in the classroom before they step on the field.  Our coaches mentor athletes to set academic goals, learn time management, and give 100% in all they do.  We believe the time and effort our athletes invest in their education will reap rewards far beyond their softball careers.

Clovis Rockets Alumni and their College Commits

Our coaching staff works with colleges from DI through DIII, NAIA, and JUCOs who regularly attend our Showcases and follow Rockets players.  We are extremely proud of the players who have gone through and benefitted from our program and continued on with their life's journey.  The work ethic they learned in our program has led these young ladies to softball at the next level, a stricter focus on higher education, or starting a career with passion.  We would never take 100% of the credit in players achieving their dreams, but we truly believe that Clovis Rockets played a very important role in their overall success.
