Nebraska Gold Relies on Gold DNA for Survival, Continuity, and Cohesion

Victory on the Field for the Nebraska Gold

by Rachel Pfeiffer – Fastpitch Network

The Midwest powerhouse Nebraska Gold has won its share of titles and tournaments since the organization first formed when two local organizations combined into one. Since then, many players have gone on to play college ball from Power Five to NAIA.

Program directors Larry Swift and Chad Perkins explain the wins and college offers come because of how Nebraska Gold prepares its teams and players to succeed. Young players are drilled in the fundamentals, and unity among the coaching staff helps ensure they continue to improve as they grow older.

 “Everybody’s on the same page, telling all the girls the same terminology,” Perkins says.
