Explosion is looking for Great Coaches, Start your Career Here! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Joe Birchfield   


Are you a passionate coach or former fastpitch softball player that would like to take your coaching skills to the next level? Are you frustrated with the lack of programmatic structure, support or tools available to you while you are coaching your team? Are you a dedicated, high character individual who not only wants to teach your players the right way to play competitive travel softball and be an on and off the field mentor? Look no further than the Knoxville Explosion Fastpitch Softball Organization, Knoxville's largest travel softball organization!
Our one of a kind program contains everything you need to take your coaching skills to the next level. We are a pay it forward organization that requires 100% commitment in a volunteer position both at the assistant and head coaching levels for ages ranging from 7 to 18. We have the tools, software, equipment and program, what we need is YOU! If you are male or female who is genuinely interested in bettering the sport of travel softball, come and check us out! Former High School, Travel and Collegiate Players are especially encouraged to apply, regardless of age!
Our program has netted 21 USA, ISA, TSFA and USSSA Tennessee State and 9 national/world series titles! In 2021, we have already won 3 Tennessee State Championships and 1 Runner-up thus far! Should you elect to work with older players, we have a complete college recruiting program that will allow you to assist your players in playing at the collegiate level. Our program has placed 31 players in the past 5 years to 17 different schools in 7 states. It works, all we need is YOU!
Come and be part of our family! Applicants are being accepted now for immediate coaching needs on our 11 teams and those additional teams being planned for Fall 2021. You must be able to pass a National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) background check and complete a Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) training program. Both of these activities will be paid by the Knoxville Softball Fastpitch Organization. These are volunteer, non-paid positions; however, travel expenses for our non-parent coaches will be covered by the team you coach!
Pay it forward now, call Knoxville Explosion Softball Organization Chief Joe Birchfield at (865) 363-0728 for an interview or email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it !
