Softball Skill videos ARE. A. MUST. HAVE! With COVID19 hindering some coaches from attending showcase tournaments๏ฟผ, this allows for the opportunity to showcase your daughters skills and create a relationship with programs that they are interested in.

Donโ€™t be THAT person who WAITS until a college coach requests a video.

BE PREPARED! If you CAN NOT confidently return a skills video request with in a couple of days the college coaches attention will go to someone who does HAVE A VIDEO.

INVEST NOW!

PITCHING - Working power line landing

Not all angles are created equal! Make sure you take a moment to have your pitching coach or parent video the athlete from behind. I didnโ€™t see this cross over issue until I evaluated her motion from the back. As you can see from the video she crosses over the power line but comes back on top of power line. It can be deceiving especially from the front. Stay efficient! ๏ฟผ

CATCHERS! We need you! Contact me if youโ€™re interested in a tryout 505-331-6762

An ๐Ÿ˜ never forgets. Thank you to all who have stuck with me through the worst nightmare I could have ever experienced in my small business world ๐ŸŒŽ I can say these things for sure.... my vision is clear, my tolerance is low and fear doesnโ€™t even exist in my vocabulary anymore. Wow thatโ€™s power.

By the Grace or God and some really dedicated athletes and parents we only need to add 2 spots on 12u after COVID19 took over our lives. Our AthElites have done endless self practicing, conditioning, home workouts and ZOOM training for over 2 months. Be apart of a program that continues to find ways to train even when the worst has happened. Contact Sondi Muรฑoz for a tryout. 505-331-6762

[05/20/20]   Our Softball AthElites need your help! Our mission is to create a learning and competitive environment to help catapult ๏ฟผgirls to achieving their goal in obtaining a college softball scholarship. With COVID19 many athletes can not afford training fees imperative to getting the most qualified trainers and resources to making them prime candidates. We also have a โ€œfund an athleteโ€ program and are thankful for any amount that can be donated. ๏ฟผ

PITCHING DRILL OF THE WEEK

๐Ÿšจ PITCHING DRILL ๐Ÿšจ PDOW (pitching drill of the week) I like to use a 3LB medicine ball or you can just use body weight - Start at the mound then lunge backwards RHP- (right handed pitchers) Drop left leg then drop right leg. The goal is to create a slightly less than 90 degree angle when in the lunge position and bring the knee to ground. If the athlete creates more than 90 degrees the following may occur 1๏ธโƒฃ The chest will hinge too far forward causing rounding of the back 2๏ธโƒฃ You may end up losing balance 3๏ธโƒฃ Lastly, the glutes and hamstrings will not be engaged or working muscles which are MOST IMPORTANT. Then lunge forward back to the pitching rubber and focus on driving forward and up through push while dragging the top of the pitching toe. Let me know what you think!

โ€œExcuses will always be there for you, opportunity wonโ€™t.โ€ Finding ways to be successful no matter what you currently are dealt with. No agility ladder? Get chalk.. no chalk? Get tape! Mix it up use a broom, a rake, a darn crack in the cement! My childhood didnโ€™t allow me to accept boundaries. This is a perfect opportunity to teach our children that we have control over our actions.

โ€œPDOWโ€ PITCHING DRILL OF THE WEEK

๐ŸšจPITCHING DRILL ๐Ÿšจ HARDER THAN IT LOOKS!
This is a lift and hold drill- Notice my left leg has knee bend and toe is pointing to the sky. I hold my balance for 2 seconds after Iโ€™ve thrown the ball.

PITCHING is like magic ๐Ÿง๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Itโ€™s the Art of Deception. Making strikes look like balls and balls look like strikes. This overlay video is giving us feedback on curve ball and screwball โ€œbreaking pointsโ€ (meaning when the ball starts to move into a different direction). We were working on making the ball look like it was heading down the middle to entice a batter to swing. Then while the batter creates commitment the ball then changes direction.

HITTING RISERS AND DROP BALLS

Preparation on Riser and Drop ball contact points. Can u see that 90% of her swing is consistent? Stay same ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Load - Step - Hip rotation
Change ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Back Elbow lead- Extension - Contact point
The more consistent you are with your lower half, it allows you to make vital changes for your hands to attack the ball in the zone.

Thank you Cibola LL for allowing us to come coach the girls!
