One Practice Down…February 26, 2008 12:21 pm Uncategorized
We just finished the first practice of the season, and I am pretty happy the things went. This is only the second year of the program so I was concerned that with only one year to start setting a tradition, the small things would be forgotten. My fears were put to rest when I walked in the gym and the returners were letting the freshman know that they needed to tuck in their shirts and make sure that they were hustling.
Without the entire team at practice yet, due to basketball practice, we are taking these first three days for the girls to review the fundamentals. That way when the b-ball girls come out I have already taught fielding fundamentals and hitting fundamentals to most of the girls so I can focus on the girls that were not there and reinforce what we have covered. I will admit when preparing for practice I did pull up Jody’s Fielding Fundamentals video to make sure that I was covering everything. That just shows no matter the age group or how long someone has coached that fundamentals are something that we need to go over to refresh.
