Brian Niskanen

Hitting & Defensive Instructor (Team Hitting Instructor)

At Cutting Edge, Brian has taken on the role as a hitting/defensive instructor as well a team hitting coach.  Brian really loves working hitting with teams.  He works with many teams that come into our facility after lessons are finished.  Last season he went out to several recreational leagues providing them with team hitting /defensive clincs and the feed back was awesome.   He now is requested by several travel teams and leagues to provide team practices.

We are very happy to have Brian aboard our Cutting Edge Softball staff.  Brian has been coaching "A" level travel softball for many years in the Bay Area.  The majority of his players have stayed playing with him from the 14u to the 18 Gold level.  He also has experience with recruiting at the 18 gold level. That spoke volumes to me as the president of Cutting Edge Softball.  He is loyal to his players and knows how to develop them to a high level.  That is the type of instructor that we look for at Cutting Edge.

Brian diligently coached has coached his ASA softball teams including 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U teams to ASA Nationals and most notably his 14U team took Seventh Place Finish in Midland Texas. Other notable accomplishments 2 top ten finishes at Louisville Slugger Independence Day Tournament.  Brian makes a great addition to our staff.
