Hello Softball Parents/Players

Hope everyone is doing well. We are making changes to our Softball Program in 2017 to improve continuity throughout all levels and most importantly Development.

Continuity Throughout all Levels-

We are going to accomplish this by set practice plans for 1st half of practices on all Levels working on Core Fundamentals building consistency and 2nd half of practices allowing coaches to work on different aspects of game situations (Level appropriate).


By having consistency throughout all levels of Core Fundamentals as girls move from 1 level to the next they will know Core Drills, so over time we can add more Advanced Drills and Activities which will help with Development. We will be focusing on developing Pitchers and Catchers more so than in past, giving any girl that is interested an opportunity to Develop at those Positions. We will be starting practices Earlier in Spring for Pitchers and Catchers to continue to develop there skills.
