Nicole Rivait Commits to Bucknell University


Nicole SIgningJoining the Toronto Fastpitch Club 19U squad in September, stand-out Junior National Team player, Team Ontario, and current National Team Pool member Nicole Rivait will cap off an incredibly successful softball career by attending Bucknell University next fall playing for Head Coach Joey Lye (member of the Canadian National Team). Joining Nicole at Bucknell University in this 2018 recruitment class is fellow Canadian National Team Pool member Allyse Volpe.

“I’ve been preparing for college through my training with the National Team. I think it is a really good starting point for the competitive and high-intensity training I’m going to receive at school. It also helps prep me for balancing my training and school work. I’m most excited to train under Coach Lye in the fall and play with my new team mates whom I’ve grown very fond of. They work incredibly hard and hold each other accountable which I love. I am extremely excited to attend Bucknell University in the fall.” – Nicole Rivait

Although new to our squad, Nicole settled in and immediately impacted the TFC as a leader as we faced Kutztown University (DII), Adelphi University (DII) and top American powerhouse programs in Ohio and Florida during our fall tour. Nicole is in good TFC company on the 2018 Women’s National Team Athlete Pool with program team mates Amanda Janes (Simon Fraser University) and Sierra Bertrand (Niagara University).

“I really think that playing for the TFC opened a lot of doors for me in terms of recruiting and understanding the process. Without the help of my coaches, Al and Lauren, I don’t think I would be in such a good place right now. My team mates on the TFC have allowed me to grow as a player and as a person providing a fun environment with a great amount of accountability to succeed at a high level”. – Nicole Rivait

With Bucknell on her mind all fall, Nicole channeled her nerves into working out tirelessly with her new teammates. As a leader and role model, Nicole stepped right up leaving a valuable impression on her teammates.

“I love playing alongside Nicole. She is a great team mate and a great athlete, but most of all, she is a great mentor. I have already learned so much from her and can’t wait to learn so much more!”- Becky Hodder, 2019 Catcher/Utility

“Playing with Nicole is an absolute pleasure! She’s that one player that always brings out the best side of your game. I’m always trying to raise my game to her level, and the best part is that she always wants to help me get there.” – Molly Edge 2019, Middle Infield

As the stress of college applications and official visits are behind her, Nicole has a new challenge she’s happy to embrace: to grow and develop within our program as well as under the National Team development protocol to be ready for college ball in tip top physical and mental shape.
