Coach Kelly has roots in Hawai‘i and brings a wealth of experience and leadership as one of the nation’s leading collegiate softball coaches.

All coaches are inivited to attend the clinic and have an opportunity for a question and answer period at the end of the clinic.


Softball coaches of all levels, youth and high school are encouraged to attend, the clinic is offered at no charge.

The Big Island Sports Academy, a newly formed non-profit, under the leadership of Bill Trumbo, former UH Hilo and Konawaena High School Athletic Director, is committed to the support of youth sports and the enrichment of opportunities for student athletes to participate beyond high school.

“It has been my passion to see our young people on the Big Island receive the best of coaching, opportunities, and facilities which are as good as anywhere,” said Trumbo.

“It is not an easy task to accomplish, being isolated provides real challenges, particularly in coaching development,” he added.

To make sure a spot is open please register your attendance, by calling Bill Trumbo, 808-936-5708 or by email

There are limited number of spots available for the camp, if you would like to attend but have not yet registered, onsite registration for any remaining spaces will be available at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10.
