Coaching Resources

Coaching girls softball can be challenging, especially if you've never done it before. Each girl brings her own set of skills and atheltic ability to the team, and knowing how to address that requires different techniques and methods. One of the best ways to learn is by watching others who are successful in the field. Talking with other coaches is invaluable, as is spending time watching their practices. In addition, the Internet is a huge trove of great information from quality instructors that can provide you with pretty much everything you need. From practice plans to drills to slow motion videos, it's all there. What's below is a sampling of some of the sites we've found particularly useful. Hopefully they help you on your quest to teach the girls as much softball and teamwork as possible!
