Today's FACES Academy is an indoor softball training facility currently based in Buford, Georgia and founded by University of Tennessee Alumni, Adrienne Walker-Chery in 2007.  Adrienne is an inaugural member of the Tennessee Lady Vols Softball program and a Class of 2010 Lady Vol Hall of Fame Inductee.  She is a Certified Tincher Pitching Instructor and has more than 15 years of experience in developing softball pitchers of all ages.

Today's FACES Academy is entering its third year of business in Buford and we are excited to announce that we are growing and expanding our passion for the game into a new market for the upcoming New Year.  If you are in the market for instruction and reside in or near Cumming, we encourage you to come and see all that we have to offer inside of The Elite Athletic Training Academy located at 2440 Oak Street East Cumming, GA 30041.  We are excited and looking forward to our new partnership with the E.A.T. Team! 

Today's FACES is defined as: Today's Former Athletes Coaching Education & Sports.  We are a talented network of current and former student-athletes, professionals, coaches and instructors with an unwavering passion for the game and a strong desire to give back to today’s youth. Although most of us have gone professional in something other than sports, the passion for the game still lives on and we believe there’s no better way to give back than to share our experiences, education and greatest insights on how to be a great student-athlete through camps, clinics, and private instruction.
