Michelle Delloso

Michelle Delloso has spent most of her career in the sports marketing industry and has created many “aspiration” programs that directly impact girls and women to include Dare 2 Dream (TC Sports®), Do You Have the Power to Dream? (Louisville Slugger®), adidas Futures (adidas®), and most recently, the Go Girl Futures Program®. She is also the founder of the Rim to Rim Club® of the Grand Canyon and she has worked for key brands to include Nike®, adidas®, and Louisville Slugger®.

Michelle competed in six different sports throughout her high school (Quakertown) and travel ball career to include cross country, volleyball, soccer, tennis, basketball, and softball. She earned numerous awards in tennis and softball and was named best all-around female athlete her senior year. In the summer of 1987, she decided to focus solely on the sport that tugged at her heart the most. Her relentless determination and work ethic earned her a softball scholarship to the University of South Carolina later that summer.

During her four years at USC, she became a three-time NCAA All-American in softball, NCAA Women’s College World Series player, NSCA All-American, ASA All-American, Olympic Festival Gold Medalist, and ASA National Champion, as well as a four-time All-Region selection, Honda-Broderick Cup Nominee and was named team captain three of her four collegiate years. She set the all-time record for a female athlete during the annual weight lifting competition at USC by squatting 340 lbs. in addition to running a 5:20 mile that same year. She is a proponent of athletes competing in more than one sport when they are younger and all athletes cross training to become the best athletes they can be.

Michelle went on to become a professional baseball player for the Colorado Silver Bullets. This inaugural team has been showcased in the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY as the first professional women’s baseball team to compete against the men.  She also played women’s professional softball and has been inducted into the National Softball Association Hall of Fame and is also the first women’s softball player to have her name on a bat (Louisville Slugger®), as well as the first female baseball/softball player to sign an endorsement contract with Nike®.

She has been a keynote speaker at many events, including Corporate Sales Meetings, National Tournaments, WCWS events, NFCA All-American high school and college banquets, Camps and Clinics, Nike® P.L.A.Y. events via Boys and Girls Clubs, adidas Futures events, as well as various sporting events, school presentations and assemblies. The largest group she had the pleasure of speaking to was 10,000 girls at the NSA World Series. Michelle’s mission is to inspire, motivate, and build confidence in girls and women by encouraging and promoting participation in sports and outdoor activities. Michelle was recently inducted into the Quakertown-Pennridge Sports Hall of Fame in 2016 and the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame – Bucks County in 2017.

Professionally, Michelle runs her own consulting firm (Red Rock Consultants, LLC), her own empowerment program for girls and women (Go Girl Futures Program® & Go Girl® Retreats) and has recently authored and self-published the book Brand-Loyal to share her story.
