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.

Let me introduce myself

What's in a name...

Let's get to it
