I am a Junior Varsity Softball coach, and I am requesting different types of softball equipment for our players to use, both in preparation for and throughout the season.
My female athletes can grow both individually and as a team, if we have the tools for success there's nothing we can't do!
Some of my girls have never played softball before, therefore they don't have their own equipment. Having access to this equipment without the financial strains would be beneficial to my athletes. My whole goal as a coach is to introduce girls to a sport they can play throughout their lifetime. I am asking for these specific softball items that will help me as a coach to teach these girls the fundamentals of softball, and to make us more competitive in our division, as well as give the girls confidence and sense of pride.
By adding a pitching machine to practice, we would be able to take several more cuts in the batter's box. Softball practice is already long and the pitchers cannot throw batting practice and games. It is too dangerous for the health of our pitcher's arms to pitch that much.
This project will not only throw pitches for batting practice but will toss defensive practice balls as well.
This machine will help them improve body mechanics, timing, and see pitch locations. It will help them level the playing field. The pitching machine will also during defensive practice. The pitching machine can pitch fly balls and ground ball to help my athletes work of their fielding mechanics.
