Puk de Groot – COMITTED

I am Puk de Groot. I’m a 18 year old softball player from the Netherlands and I am looking for a college in the U.S. to play softball and get my degree. I play for Onze Gezellen Haarlem in the Dutch Division 1 and I’m a part of the Dutch National Junior team.

In 2021 I was selected for the Talent Team NL program based in Amsterdam. Because of this, I have been living on my own since I was fifteen. We train nine times a week and this helped me a lot to grow as a athlete, but also to be able to combine my sport with school. Last summer I played the European Championship U18 in Prague. This was a great experience where I learned a lot. I’m a very disciplined and highly motivated player. I am always looking to learn new things and to improve myself. I’m searching for a competitive college where I can grow as a softball athlete and to gain a new experience.
