"I have known Rachel for over 4 years. I had the opportunity to work/coach with Rachel at Valparaiso University. As a young person I was amazed at her knowledge of the sport of softball. Rachel is passionate, caring, charismatic and a great teacher. Without reservation, I strongly endorse her. "
Former Head Coach at Valparaiso University, and Assistant Coach at Wisconsin and Iowa State
"I was lucky enough to play 2 years with Rachel at Marshall University and 5 years with her in the NPF. She is hands down one of the best players I have ever played with. I also played with multiple Olympians and she still makes my all-time roster! She is not only a wonderful player, but an ambassador of the sport who truly loves ball and everything that comes with it. She is a gamer, a baller and a lifer! The game is blessed to have someone as passionate as Rachel Folden!"
Former Professional Player in the NPF
"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Rachel Folden for the past year and absolutely admire her character and passion for the game. Her work ethic and motivation to succeed has not only made her a great player, but also the ultimate coach and mentor. She prides herself on the integrity of the game and it shows in everything she does. Even after such a successful career, she continues to be both a student and a teacher of the game. But even more than that, I have the utmost respect for Rachel because of who she is as a person and what she stands for. She is the ideal role model for the young people in our sport."

Head Softball Coach

"While Coach Folden was with Valparaiso University she recruited my daughter And instantly my daughter was sold, not only on the university but with coach as well. I can honestly say she passed on offers from the Big Ten and the SEC Because of Coach Rachel.
Her professionalism, knowledge of the game, and hands on coaching style are second to none. Top that with her strive to win and you have a complete teacher. Keep up the good work Coach, you have my support and my gratitude."
