On December 26, the European Softball Coaches Association will host an online event with 4 top coaches at 19:00 CET.

It's time to present the third speaker on our coaches' line-up: Coach Nikki Palmer.

Coach Palmer has been the Head Coach for the University of California Riverside (UCR) since September of 2016, following seasons at Utah Valley and Weber State.

In 2018, Head Coach Palmer reached a personal milestone winning her 100th career game on April 22nd over UC Davis. 

Palmer's aggressiveness on the base paths showed as her team compiled a .820 stolen base percentage — the second-highest single-season mark in school history.

Before becoming a coach, Palmer played four seasons at University of California San Diego (UCSD), starting in 146 of the 158 games in which she appeared during her career, playing primarily at catcher


ESCA members will have the possibility to interact with Coach Palmer, Coach Walker, Coach Bristow, and another top coach for 90 minutes during the ESCA holiday special panel.
