Mark Peterson began coaching for his twin daughters in the Castro Valley Girls Softball League in 2017. He coached on rec teams, assisted at the Synergy travel ball team’s practices, as well as coaching the Stompers in The San Ramon Valley Girls Athletic League during his daughters’ time with their 14U team.

His goal is to provide his teams with the playing time, confidence, and best skills needed to play for both their community and schools.

Mark’s 2021 coaching staff will include former Synergy coaches. This is an excellent opportunity for CV students who want to go onto playing high school ball.
