Competitive Edge Softball Instruction

My name is Darcy Wylie. I’ve been playing softball my whole life, and pitching since I was 10 year

Operating as usual


This is the same pitching position taken 9 years apart.

If I pitched and someone took a picture this year in 2022, 16 years later, it would be the same as well!

As a pitcher, you work and work and work to build not only a solid foundation, but a solid foundation that becomes HABIT.

You put in the time and the monotonous reps, even though they might be boring, so that your mechanics become something that's second nature and you don't have to think about them.

This is why you practice so that in games, you're not thinking about your MECHANICS so much, but you're thinking about your own mindset, the umpire, what to throw each hitter, the adjustment they're making in the box, etc.

Your body only has so much room for information, and if half of your mind is trying to continually think about mechanics, you're not going to be present in the game and able to compete to the best of your ability.

This is yet another reason why it's important to not learn new pitches too soon....

..because if you're worried about larning a new pitch before your foundation is locked in, bad habits will form and then it will either

a) take you a lot longer to learn the new pitch
b) prevent you from ever be consistent with the new pitch.

Fundamentals never go out of style.

Don't be so quick to move on just be cause your pitcher is bored or begging you to do so.

Teach her the importance of repetition and powering through "boring" because the benefits are everlasting.
