Happy 2014!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

2014 is finally here! Which means softball season is right around the corner.

Are you ready?

Did you take advantage of the holiday break from school? Or have you been spending more time on the couch than the field lately?

For those of you who have been consistently practicing the past few months, BRAVO! I’m proud of you, and you will be rewarded come opening day through the last game of the season. But even if you haven’t, it’s not too late to get a jump start.

For all of you, here’s a great guide to setting up your softball goals and making them real.

But what about mental goals?

The mental side of pitching is so, so, so important! Here’s my challenge to you… start thinking about the list below:

  • Your presence on the mound
  • Consistent pre-delivery and approach to the rubber
  • Self-talk
  • Aggressiveness
  • Focus and Intensity
  • Pre-game and In-game visualization
  • Attitude towards other teammates and coaches

These are all CONTROLLABLE aspects of the game, that for you as a pitcher, can help to take your team to the next level. Come see me (or email me or call me) to discuss further. I’m also happy to help you work through your goals.

Let’s make 2014 the year of championships!

    Yes I agree with you totally we need to practice more than we do. And one thing that you left out is that you need to use your self conscience and if it is wrong than just go with but sometimes it will be right and 2014 is going to be a good year for softball. The question is are you ready for it. The answer is of course you are. Have a good day
