    The role of Victimoalogy in sports

    In almost every athletes sports story and especially in female sport stories it seems that a victim senerio is played over and over. It's overused and it's depressing to say the least if not skirting the truth just a bit at times. I'm not talking about athletes that were truly victims of thier...

    IDT or Sparkler (Colorado)

    How far in advance do you suggest a team sign up in advance for IDT or Sparkler? I know with current restrictions might change or cancel these. I'm just trying to get a feel on the registration timing. Thanks! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    First Invite

    This is probably the only good thing that's happened in 2020 to our family and especially my DD. Not a brag per se as it's a nod for hard work. The DD was invited to her first College softball camp. It's not a huge deal as It's just a beginning or first step. After her first two Showcases of...

    When the unthinkable happens

    Girls doing warmups hit teammate talking to someone behind Home Plate. Smoked the poor girl in the back of the head with 50+ mph pitch. She didn't lose consciousness but unable to move any extremities. We all know the risks just from experiences at fields whether coaching or spectating but...

Trying to get one series of National league tournaments with standardized point system complete with regionals leading to a big year ending championship? Looking like our team is going to be part of...

    A little custom glove comparison

    I ordered a custom RICO and a custom 44 Pro glove. I used the custom glove builder from each site and just want to see which one I get first and compare the quality of the build. I'll post some real info on turn time, cost, and get some feedback from the DD. Here is the preview of what I...

    Can you be to competitive

    This was in an article on extra innings softball site that had me thinking about my daughter's competitiveness. "HOW DO YOU THINK THE PLAYERS FEEL ABOUT LAST YEAR? Coach Nelson: Defeat! This team has been so successful because they feel the defeat that others don’t. It’s burns them inside...

    The last practice ever

    Had the privilege of watching a father pitch to his daughter for the last time tonight for her final batting practice in her softball career. She's a Senior at Colorado State University. I got to take their picture after the batting session. Cool and emotional. I don't think it sunk in until...

    Turning a corner

    Or should I should I say destroying a corner. That day when stars are aligned, the socks are squared up and the tongue is held just right. Ha ha.. You know the feeling <When the DD has the best practice of her entire life. It starts to draw a crowd and you couldn't be any more proud! That was...

    Tucking Glove on infield when throwing

    So some old school knowledge/teaching came up the other day. The conversation was centered on tucking the glove after fielding a ball and throwing it in the infield. I feel this technique is outdated for today's game. I'd love to hear thoughts on this subject. Sent from my SM-G935P using...

    Coach Experience

    I've been disappointed in people trying to coach softball that think just because they've played a high level this gives them the gift of coaching. Just because you've played the game at D1, D2 level doesn't seem to automatically translate into good a coach.. I'm sure plenty of D1, D2 and...

    Moving for kids sports

    I was curious to see how many people would or have moved because of kids sports. I've been asked several times if we've considered doing this for the athletic advantages this could give my DD. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    Roster size as teams age to 14U

    Had some parents express some dissatisfaction with a 12th player added to the team. In fact so much so they left to become the 12th player on another team. :) As team ages up it seems to be just a fact of life to have some pitchers that pitch only and don't play other positions on the team...

    Slappernation clinics

    Anyone have any DD's go to these Slapping Clinic's. Slapping seems like it's going the way of the Knuckle ball throwers. Give me some feedback from the camp/clinic.

Get notice today we've being run already to "A". Mandatory! No competition local only out of state. I don't think 9 year old girls shouldn't be...
