Central Missouri Phenom (CMP) was created in 2015 to give Mid Missouri athletes an opportunity that currently does not exist for them without traveling to the Kansas City or St. Louis area. We are a Non For Profit organization governed by a "Board" as required under the IRS's 501(c)(3) rules.
Central Missouri Phenom (CMP) and Phenom Fastpitch have created a team of coaches/instructors that include current or former collegiate athletes and coaches to help give your athlete the best learning environment possible. Our coaches train athletes with the most up to date skills and this will foster a culture of competitiveness between players and teams which will produce a level of high intensity in practice and carry over into games. To keep our busier athletes in training, we have implemented organizational "standard principles." This is done by teaching similar strategies across our teams so we can share athletes easier when a team is shorthanded or a player needs/wants extra game experience. This will also eliminate the need for outside guest players. In addition to this we can open practices up when an athlete misses their own team's practice due to multi-sport or family related conflicts.

You can spend upwards of $4000 for an agency to promote your athlete with limited knowledge of how they perform on top of fees to play on a select travel team. Or you can travel with us all summer as we coach those athletes and we learn what they are capable of, That’s how we give credible information to the colleges.
