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!

YOUR COACH SHOULD BE IN CONTACT WITH YOU BY FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022.
Training at home, especially during the off-season is a great way to stay active and develop skills so you are ready for the upcoming softball season! There are many training resources available online. This is just one of the options recommended by Portage Youth Softball and the Portage High School Softball Program.
We would love to see our players doing this training drill. You can send us pictures or videos via Facebook or email and you can also post pictures by commenting below. We will showcase some of our players on our Facebook page if they complete this and/or other training drills!
Make sure to ALWAYS use or draw a home plate. Keep the bat at the top of the strike zone. Let the ball come to you. Do not “go out and get it.” You want to absorb the impact of the ball so that it doesn’t go too far out by the fielders. At the Varsity level, we bunt A LOT and win many games because of it!
As a reminder, at this time, all Portage softball facilities are closed. Please stay away from all Portage Community School District facilities. Complete this training drill at your home or at an open location while following all social distancing recommendations.
