At-Home Training Blog
During the COVID-19 Safer-At-Home Order and during any part of the off-season, we encourage you to use the training resources in this blog to develop your skills and stay active so you are ready for the next softball season!
ROSTERS, COACHING STAFFS, AND PRACTICE SCHEDULES ARE NOW POSTED FOR ALL TEAMS. FIND YOUR TEAM UNDER THE 'TEAMS' TAB. GAME SCHEDULES ARE STILL BEING DETERMINED.
YOUR COACH SHOULD BE IN CONTACT WITH YOU BY FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022.
Notice there are not extra steps when the throw down is done. Get the ball quick to the ear and stay low. Do NOT stand all the way up.
You can use a ball or use a rolled up sock to work on your arm circles with this drill.
Watch from 0:00 - 2:01
Toss the ball up in the air to yourself keeping your body behind the ball so you can practice coming through the ball. Notice that the feet are always moving and the body is low! Get the ball at the lowest point!
Your at-bat actually starts before you leave the dugout and includes your time in the on-deck circle. Check out Amanda Scarborough’s routine. She goes a little slower than I’d like, but she makes a very good point when she says to look at your 3rd base coach each time! Can you show us how you confidently walk up to the plate?
This drill is for our 12U - 16/18U leagues.
