"Playing for the Dan Pearson’s organization put me in front of the right coaches at the right times. It gave me the opportunity to learn from the people around me as well as advance my game. I am almost sure that without playing for coach Pearson I wouldn’t be at Howard today."

Coach Dan is a person you would want to play for if you want to take softball to the next level. Coach Dan is outgoing regarding getting his players recruited and exposure to the college softball world. Not only does Coach Dan care about his players succeeding, but so does every other coach in the Wolverines program.
Playing for Dan Pearson gave me the most exposure in just months. Coach Pearson will go the extra mile to get you recruited. He knows the value of hard work and he won’t stop until YOU find the perfect fit. If you’re able to be apart of his organization or team, you’re blessed! He may be tough but he will get you ready for college :)
Thank you so much, Dan Pearson!

Dan is a man that works around the clock. He puts so much time and dedication in getting girls recruited for all softball players. He is well respected in the softball community and has so many connections all over the US. It’s a great opportunity!
Coach Dan, makes things happen fast when it comes to recruiting, I am forever thankful for the opportunity he gave me to meet Coach Jones. I am so grateful he helped me find my perfect fit at Arkansas Tech University. All of the coaches In the Wolverines program work so hard to help you succeed!

"Playing for coach Dan made all my little girl softball dreams come true! Playing for him gave me the most exposure out of my whole travel ball career. His best interest is getting you to play college ball and he’s really good at finding your perfect fit; even if you’re the pickiest girl on the team!"
A Big Shout shoutout to coach Dan Pearson who made this possible. So many coaches and programs say they will help you but coach Pearson believes in you even when you feel you are not doing your best. Thank you for believing in me and the rest of the girls.
Alexis "Noodles" Galvan - Player
The Wolverines coaches are absolutely amazing and will work hard to get you to college. Without the help of coach Dan Pearson I wouldn't be where I'm at today.
Thank you for believing in me and giving me this dream opportunity.
I always remember to trust God's plan as coach Pearson once said!! Thank you coach Pearson for believing in me and keeping me upbeat.
I am so grateful that my daughter, Karlie, had the opportunity to play for Coach Dan and the WestCoast Wolverines organization. Not only does he get his players seen by college coaches, but he also helps his players determine the fit that is best for them. We have played for other organizations that don’t really give their players a look at all of the different options that they have, whether playing at a large school, small school, NCAA or NAIA. Dan really cares about helping his players find a place where they can succeed. It can be a very confusing process and I want to thank you, Dan, for guiding us through it!

The West Coast Wolverine’s coaching staff will go above and beyond for any player that shows love and want for the game. I have been a Wolverine for about 4 years now and in those 4 years my exposure level and skill level for the game changed drastically. Coach Dan and Coach Tom went out their way to help me gain opportunities with many colleges. My gut tells me no matter my skill level that if it wasn’t for the Wolverines coaching staff and opportunities it provides, I wouldn’t be attending Sterling college in 2023. Thank you to our coaching staff for the opportunity and life lessons you have provided for me

Dan Pearson is dedicated to helping these young ladies. He has been nothing but amazing to my daughter throughout her softball journey. He has also been wonderful to our whole family. Thank you Dan for all of your help with Angelina and pushing her to be the best she can be. Our family appreciates you more than you will ever know.
Southwest Baptist University
My daughter has played for the West Coast Wolverines since she was a freshman in highschool. Before joining we were at a loss on what a showcase team was. Our coach Jessie Rios was the best coach. Practices were great. The team worked on fundamentals. The girls were accountable for their practice off the field as well. My daughter grew so much from this team. The girls on the team were happy and had each other's backs. It's so hard to find coaches who give so much to your daughter as the Wolverines coaches. My daughter has moved up to the wolverines Lagabed team and it's been the smoothest transition. Your teammates change but the philosophy and mindset do not. Work hard and go to the next level. That next level is college. Join the Wolverines organization and you won't be disappointed. Thank you Dan Pearson for getting my daughter recruited and having the best coaches with the Wolverines organization.
Missouri Valley College
My daughter had the privilege of being coached by Dan Pearson for several years. From the first day, Dan demonstrated the true meaning of being a coach with nothing but selflessness, sacrifice, countless hours, 200% effort toward the team and each player. Not only does Dan take the time to bring the best out in each player, he teaches them how to better their game and become stronger, smarter, dedicated, determined and successful athletes. Dan's recruiting isn't only for his own players, his mission is to give every player on any team the opportunity to continue their dream as scholar athletes at the collegiate level. The showcases and tournaments he puts these young ladies in exceed any expectation. Professionally run and organized with incredible college coaches as well as players who support each other and encourage one another to succeed. Many friendships are formed in this organization which will last a lifetime for these girls.
Dan is one in a million and as a parent I am forever grateful my daughter was able to experience and learn from such a great leader.

My twin sister and I have played for a lot of good organizations over the years but none as focused as Dan when it comes to elevating your game and college recruiting. I have learned so much from him. I'm very honored to give back to the program that got me and my sister to college -I'm in college and coaching with Dan during the summer. My dad is an educator for the Clovis Unified school district and current high school coach. I get a lot of my softball knowledge from my pops and coach Pearson.

"Hands down the best organization that my daughter has ever played for. Since joining, she has had multiple offers for college. Its not about playing the biggest tournaments, and hope you get noticed. We play in front of tons of colleges at camps on Friday with the ability to talk to all the coaches you are interested in, and they watch you play over the course of the tournament weekend. It really helps build the relationship between coach and player and makes the recruiting process easier. Wolverines get it done!"
Juliann is doing well at USCB and adjusting to the East coast climate.
We can’t thank you enough for coaching, guiding and setting high expectations for Juliann. She stumbled, got up and earned a scholarship because of her efforts and more importantly, you helping to make the connection with coach Bailey at USCB. We’ve known you for over 6-years and I cannot remember how many college connections you’ve made for your players, all over the country, as long as they put in the time and effort necessary to catch a college coaches eye. Your long hours, patience and holding the players accountable is very much appropriated. You have positively change the future of your student athletes.
See you at the diamond and

Dans does a great job! Not only for his player but all players he’s able to help. He has helped several of my players into the college ranks and they are not even Wolverines!
Most definitely worth taking a look at his scholarship factory!

What is your end game as a player? A trophy on a wall or getting noticed and playing at the next level? If you want to get noticed.. be challenged and prepared for the next level this is the team. Proof is in the results.
I cannot express enough how this orginization provides the opportunity for your daughter to advance into their college careers. The coaching staff is amazing and many have either played softball or are coaching at a college level. So they know what they are doing in advancing your child's development and exposure to success. Madyson has been with Tom for many years now and wouldn't have it any other way. He's truly an amazing coach.
Dan brings the opportunity with the show cases and the colleges he brings out to them. Your child just needs to put in the work and dedication. Trust me the opportunity is there for them. Dan has had many conversations with my child one on one and asked what she is looking for. He delivered! Mads is now signed to a college where she feels at home because Dan took the time to bring out colleges he feels are a great fit to your child's needs and wants.
We are truly grateful for this opportunity Madyson has had with this organization. It's truly an amazing organization.
