NubAbility Athletics Coach

Katelyn Pavey

NubAbility has really opened up my eyes and has helped me to see just how powerful out God is. Don’t blink, you don’t want to miss God at work. These kids have helped me open up and embrace my limb difference and own who I am. I am impacted and changed every time I attend camp.”

About Katelyn

Limb Difference: Congential

Type: Left Arm (phocomelia)

Sport: Softball

Katelyn Pavey was born with phocomelia, a rare birth defect characterized by underdeveloped or absent limbs. She has half a left arm with two digits just below the elbow. In regards to softball, Pavey’s throwing glove transition is less than a quarter of a second slower than any other player’s method.

As a left-handed hitter, she chokes the bat with her right hand and steadies it with her half arm at the plate. She made the switch from righty at an early age for more control. Watch Katelyn’s adaptive bat trick video!

Sports + Highlights:

Lanesville High School (IN): Softball (4yrs), Conference MVP, nominated to be All-Area Team Member in IN.

● 1st All-State Team member (M/F) who was limb different in the state of Indiana

Awarded a full softball scholarship to Cincinnati Christian University where she currently plays


● An avid Chicago Cubs fan. Enjoys the Great Outdoors, fishing and hiking too!
