RHS Welcomes new head coach Julianna Duso to Girls Slowpitch Softball

Coach J (Julianna Duso) is excited to join the Rough Rider family as the Slowpitch Softball coach.  She has been playing softball since she was 5 with experience as both a fastpitch and slowpitch player.  Coach J currently coaches fastpitch for Northeast Seattle Little League and Seattle Pilots as well as slowpitch for the Rain(bow) City Softball League, where she is also a player.  She also has experience coaching for Seattle Central Little league. When she isn't coaching or playing softball, Coach J also moonlights as a USA Softball umpire.  Coach J's passion for softball comes from her belief that youth team sports play a large role in building community and instilling life skills such as resilience, confidence, being a good teammate, and winning with grace.  Coach J's goal for the slowpitch program is that each player has a chance to grow their softball and life skills and of course....HAVE FUN!
