Meet Coach Nina


Christina “Nina” Yeatman grew up outside of Annapolis, Md., and began playing softball at the age of 5. She quickly became known as a power hitter and dominant middle infielder, and went on to become a four-year high school varsity starter at shortstop and second base. Team captain Nina led her Bruin teammates in homeruns and RBIs; her prowess was rewarded with an All-County Team selection her senior year.


Nina began her coaching career while in high school, assisting in local softball camps and discovering her love of passing on her wisdom to others and helping them improve their skills. She earned her B.S. in Health and Physical Education with a minor in Coaching Science; instead of playing in college, Nina dove right into coaching. She has nearly a decade of coaching experience from the recreation level through high school varsity, including professionally in competitive regions in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia.



After college, Nina taught middle school health and physical education in Virginia for a year before returning home to pursue softball more. Setting the stage for the founding of Yeatman Elite Softball, she has been a private/semi-private hitting instructor for more than three years, running multiple softball camps and clinics and touching the lives of more than 150 student-athletes.


It was through her travels and coaching in multiple states that Nina noticed the need for more accessible softball camps and clinics. This led Nina to turn to softball full time and to the creation of Yeatman Elite Softball. Desiring to make a difference, Nina tapped into her uncles' experiences in camps to model her company. Nina's uncle, Devin Bonik, owned Forever Sports, Inc. running football camps for 15 years in numerous states utilizing NFL coaches and players. Devin now owns Bonik Sports Group, a firm representing collegiate and professional level coaches. Nina's other uncle, Dennis Yeatman, is celebrating his 20th year running the Pacific Lacrosse Festival in San Diego, CA.
