Canadian and International champion offering softball clinics, coaching and motivational speaking.

Olympian. Speaker. Coach

Olympic medalist and International champion offering speaking engagements and softball clinics.

Motivate
and educate

Sport has helped shape the person I am today because of the lessons I’ve learned throughout my athletic career. Playing at an elite level has taught me self-discipline, teamwork, leadership and managing how to “juggle the chaos” – all skills I’ve been able to transfer into the workplace. My strong work ethic has earned me the reputation of having one of the best “changeup” pitches in the world. My personally-tailored softball lessons and speaking engagements challenge participants to be “comfortable with being uncomfortable” so they may become better leaders. My goal is to help translate experiences people take away from sports into learnings and actions that will help them throughout life.

Testimonials

“Jenna Caira has played a leading role in the resurgence of Canada’s women’s national softball team as a world power. As a team captain, Jenna plays a significant role in mentoring younger players as they learn the game at the international level. As one of the top five female softball pitchers in the game with the most devastating change up on the planet, she has earned the reputation among her peers of being a fearless competitor and a teammate who makes those around her better. As a person, Jenna exhibits strong leadership ability, combined with self-confidence and humility. Jenna Caira is a winner in every sense of the word and will be an impact player on any team in any environment.”

 

Mark Smith

HEAD COACH
SENIOR CANADIAN WOMEN’S NATIONAL SOFTBALL TEAM

“Jenna Caira is a unique individual who has accomplished so much because of her personal drive to better herself every day. As a collegiate student athlete at Syracuse, she was a role model for so many young girls because of her success in the classroom AND on the ball field. As a national team player for Team Canada, she is now able to spread that success story world-wide. The best compliment I can say about her is that, “I hope my daughters grow up to be a little like Jenna.”

 

Ken Eriksen

HEAD COACH
SENIOR WOMEN’S USA SOFTBALL TEAM

“Having worked with Jenna for over 15 years I can honestly say that her love of the game is addictive. A proven power pitcher with arguably the best change up in the world, Jenna offers a great combination for young kids learning how to pitch. She has a quality that kids are not only drawn to but are inspired to emulate. Jenna has excelled at every level of the game and has learned more about the art of pitching each step of the way. As one of the best pitchers to ever wear the Maple Leaf, you can’t help but be motivated by Jenna’s work ethic. As a parent, you can’t ask for a better role model for your kid!”

 

Todd Martin

ISC WORLD CHAMPION + 

PAN AM GOLD MEDALIST

“Jenna was a special guest at my department Town Hall in March 2021. Jenna is a dynamic speaker and storyteller and translated her experiences in competitive sports into life skills we can all use, such as discipline, adapting to change and the power of communication. Jenna spoke at length about creating a winning culture and the values of teamwork. My team was blown away by Jenna’s authenticity, relatability and how she has been able to accomplish so much in sports and in life, by being true to herself and following her passions. I was blown away by how thoughtfully and professionally she prepared for the event, and what an impact she made on everyone over a video conference. I can’t wait to have her back in person.”

 

DAVID MARKWELL

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT,

LOBLAW TECHNOLOGY

“Genuine. A very simple word but one that most accurately describes Jenna Caira. Genuine in her competitiveness and desire to be successful in all of her endeavors. Genuine in her interactions with the people who are fortunate enough to cross paths with her and most importantly, genuine in her passion for the game of softball.”

 

Mike Bosch

ASSISTANT COACH
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA SOFTBALL TEAM

“Jenna uses different coaching styles so all her players can learn effectively. She teaches you to understand the “why” behind pitching mechanics to help make quicker adjustments. Working with Jenna has changed me as a pitcher and an overall player. I learned 3 new pitches (drop, rise, and change up) that I now throw consistently and confidently. She made it obvious that with hard work, I could accomplish anything I wanted to in this sport. Jenna knows everything her athletes are going through because she has been there herself. She is fully committed to her students – she is a coach on the field and a friend off the field, which is something that most coaches can’t master. Jenna has found the perfect balance!”

“More than ever, our children are starving for strong role models with innate leadership skills that understand the importance of developing and fostering their confidence throughout adolescence. I reached out to my friend, Canadian Softball Superstar, Jenna Caira. My students’ were awe-struck as Jenna eloquently spoke about her experiences with Team Canada’s National Softball program. As impressive as her experiential resume is, her humility and charismatic approach is unmatched. Her passion for her sport, intertwined with her innate leadership skills and unique ability to connect with people, left a lasting impression on my students’ that they still speak about to this day.”
