MANY HIGH SCHOOL TRYOUTS START MONDAY MARCH 2nd..........

Most Fields probably have 2 to 3 feet of snow covering them..........then mud!

What a Winter!

 

 

 

 

Good Luck to Everyone trying out for Spring Sports!

The Big Secret: Enjoy the tryouts, look like you want to be there, be active.
Stand right up front and stop everything that comes near you.
Tip: Don't stand there with the glove on your head or chewing on it, put it to
good use.
If you're hitting in the cages, don't wait for the perfect pitch, swing hard and make contact.

Coaches are looking at a number of things during tryouts, even if your skills aren't
top notch, many coaches are looking for players that learn fast and listen to
what She or He tells you. Remember everybody started the sport not as an MVP,
but at the beginning, some at an earlier age, some at a later age, but we've seen girls that
never played on an organized team become in One Year key team players.

RFastP.com NOTE: Older Coaches, Newer Coaches, First Time Coaches,... Take a New Modern
Coaches Clinic. It's all changed. Learn the newest training techniques, time saving drills,
conditioning to avoid injuries. Why waste years of everybodies time learning this
stuff, the hard way, when you can advance 'Light Years' in one weekend. Enjoy Coaching.
When you train them right, they look good and they enjoy the game and can't wait to play.
Statement: I can't tell you how many times over the years We've seen really good
baseball coaches sign up to coach a softball team thinking "I'm going to show them how to
win it all!"......and never win a game............. Baseball is not Fastpitch Softball.
Now, on the other hand, take all those baseball skills and learn through clinics, books, tapes etc how
to do Fastpitch right...and you'll be unstoppable........
Remember: 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun!'.....and when They are having fun, winning comes easy.

JOSIE'S READY TO HIT A HOME RUN - AT WHAT AGE SHOULD THEY START?
Even at 3,4 or 5 years old, you can pitch a wiffle ball to them and see if they can hit or catch. If anything, it would increase hand/eye coordination and help in later years in any sport. I think a lot of people would be surprised to see how well a 4 or 5 year old can hit a wiffle ball with a plastic bat with only a couple days practice. In a few days they start adjusting and start to clobber the ball over your head.

LONG-TERM GOALS:

1. Get more girls of all ages involved in fastpitch softball.

2. If a local fastpitch association can be formed and can organize leagues, games and tournaments in a seven-county area, or the Section V area, there would be an organization to start in motion a master plan to build a centrally located softball complex where local leagues, sectional games, tournaments, etc. could be played. This would end the need to beg for fields, pay for fields, or kiss someones bu-- to get the use of a diamond for a few hours.
The more people who get involved, the easier it would be to build something like this. Both Buffalo and Syracuse have complexes built with public funding which are strictly for fastpitch softball!

3. Keep girls involved at all ages. Buffalo has an open league with no age limit. Females of all ages, from young girls to women who have graduated from college and have children of their own, still play in fastpitch leagues.

With Title IX and all the money spent on men's sports facilities in our area, it it is not that far-fetched to believe that a local complex could be built.
