For ten years, Bolten, has been helping softball players grow into successful athletes and adults. His dedication to providing his teams with the skills they need to improve and grow makes Mark Bolten our Coach of the Week.
Bolten’s coaching career began when his eldest daughter, Megan, 18, first started playing softball. She has now moved on to play at the college level but Bolten continues to coach her high school team the Indianola Indians. He looks forward to one day coaching his younger daughter Morgan, 11, and son Kasey, 3.
Outside of coaching Bolten is happily married to his wife Kris and is the owner of Bolten Carpets in Des Moines, IA. As a business owner and head coach Bolten finds time management to be key, which is why he is thankful to have found Weplay. “I just post all game and practice information and hit send, it’s that simple,” wrote Bolten, who is all about on-the-go time savers.
In a recent team message Bolten announced the Indians took home 3rd place out of 30 teams at the NDM tournament. He hopes that the confidence his players gained will continue to pay off once the high school season begins.
Next step for Bolten this season is to keep the intensity level up to insure the Indians spot at the state championship.
Congratulations to our Coach of the Week, Mark Bolten. Go Indians!
