The Breakers Labs organization was founded in August 2017 when Coach Bobby created a new club. The team started as SoCal Breakers Labs at the 12U level. Most of the current players on the team have been playing for Coach Bobby since either 12U or 14U.

Their team is based in northern San Diego County. We have weekly team batting practice and strength & conditioning training at Big Fly Athletics in San Marcos, Calif. We have weekly field practice at Kit Carson Park in Escondido, Calif.

Our student-athletes primarily live throughout San Diego County and the Temecula/Murrieta area. We have also had student-athletes from the Los Angeles area as well as Calabasas. 

The goals of the team are not specifically to win titles but to train and compete at the highest possible level. Competing at the highest level allows us to showcase all of our student-athletes and prepare them for the collegiate level.

Over the last four years, Breakers Labs has been emerging as one of the top programs in San Diego County.

Breakers Labs is a unique player experience with a family atmosphere that Coach Bobby has created. His personal connections to each and every player set him apart. Being selfless breeds success and wins games.

Coach Bobby Labs has been coaching girls fastpitch softball for over 14 years. He started out with the San Diego Renegades then after some very successful seasons, moved to the SoCal Breakers in 2011. In August 2017, Coach Bobby made the decision to branch out and create his own fastpitch softball organization. 

He is the heart and soul of the organization. A passionate and energetic leader, Coach Bobby had a hand in developing and coaching hundreds of girls in his career and has personally placed over 60 players in just the past five years with some of the top Division I programs as well as numerous DII, DIII and NAIA colleges and universities.

As a true player’s coach, Bobby stresses the fundamentals, proper techniques, and raising softball IQ during all practices and lessons. He also stresses the importance of understanding the value of the team and how the life skills and lessons girls learn as part of softball are things that will translate to help them be successful in life as well. 

Teaching and guiding the development of these young girls is Bobby’s way of paying it forward for all the critical and positive influences he has had in his life. As someone that struggled early in life with some poor decisions, Coach Bobby credits all those positive influences in helping him get his life turned around and into coaching softball. A self-proclaimed “shaper of young minds,” Coach Bobby has earned the respect of players, coaches and parents alike.

The Breakers Labs Organization currently has 9 teams:

  • One 18U team – 18U Blue
  • Two 16U  teams – 16U Blue and 16U Black
  • Three 14U teams – 14U Blue, 14U Black, and 14U White
  • Two 12U teams – 12U Blue and 12U Black
  • One 10U team – 10U Blue

In 2016 as a 14U team, the team went 5-0 in the PGF Las Vegas National Qualifier. While battling intense 108-degree heat the team came together to win several close games and capture the PGF Premier berth. 

In 2018 playing at PGF 16U Platinum Nationals, the team went 3-0 through the pool games then 6-0 through the bracket games to advance to the National Championship game. The 9-0 run was driven by superior pitching, great offense, and a gritty come-from-behind win in the semi-final game against a strong Monarch Gold team.

Intense practices, excellent skills development, hard work, and Coach Bobby’s involvement with all of the teams and players in the organization prepares them to compete at the highest level. Balancing culture, unconditional support, and advanced training has proven fruitful.
