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 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.
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!
