Softball Hitting – The “Must - Have” Information for Coaches
by: Marc Dagenais

To have an excellent and effective team, that is the usual goal of most softball coaches. If you are a coach and you want to have this kind of team then you must be able to teach them all the skills that are needed in the game and aside from that, you must also be very hard-working and patient in developing each of your players. There is a need for you to teach your players how to pitch and throw the ball properly. They must also be aware of the right way to hold the bat and swing. Aside from that, you must also teach team how to be strong, powerful, and accurate so that they will be able to hit the ball. But then these are not enough, there are still loads of things that you need to teach them so that they will be complete players, players that are armed with the right knowledge and skills.

However, what is sad is that there are tons of coaches out there who are not able to teach their players correctly because they are not also aware of the proper things and techniques that they need to do. More often than not, they are not that successful in teaching the proper way to do softball hitting and this is not good since hitting is considered as the most complicated yet needed skill in softball. The common mistake that most softball coaches are doing is that they just keep on talking and lecturing about things but then they are not executing those things that they are teaching. If you are a coach, you must know that for your players to learn all the skills in softball especially hitting, you must show your players how to do it. You must not just keep on talking; you must do the actions as well.

For sure you want your team to improve, so you must go on reading and follow the tips that are suitable for coaches like you. The first one is before you will teach your players the softball hitting techniques.

Before you will teach your players the techniques and strategies in hitting, you must first look at their strengths and weaknesses. You must develop their strengths but then again you need to work hard on the skills where they are not that good. More often, players are not that excellent in hitting since this is the most complicated skill in softball. You can discover their strengths and weaknesses by letting them do several drills.

In order for them to be successful in softball hitting, you need to teach them the proper way to hold the bat, the right stance, and the correct swing. If your players know that you have taught them the proper way to do all these things then they will be confident enough and will be able to hit perfectly. However, you must not rush things; you must really take time to analyze each of your players and know the way they hit the ball.
