TAKE POINT, WHAT'S THAT?
I'm sure you are wondering: What is this company? Who is this girl? How did she come up with that name?
Well, I'm about to answer all that and more.
My name is Erin Ashby, a recent Stanford Softball Alum and true believer that hard work pays off. After growing up in So Cal - the heart of softball - I've realized there is so much knowledge surrounding the game that needs to be shared.
My philosophy is simple. A great athlete is only as good as her approach. Take Point aims to develop each and every girl into the best they each can be.
You might be wondering how I settled on Take Point.
Back in 1966 during the Vietnam War, soldiers were assigned or volunteered to “walk point.” Walking point meant being the first in the face of danger.
A point man had one job – being focused and keen on detail to protect his comrades from anything that came their way. The point man is the front-runner. He shows no fear. He embodies confidence even in panicked times. He lays it all on the line because he believes in what he stands for.
He never backs down.
I want girls to embody this philosophy. I want them to take point.
