    If you want your team to have a winning season then as a coach you must improve your coaching skills and total comment the whole season and year. Amen…

    What I always find as the hardest part of coaching younger players is getting them to “see” what I’m trying to explain. I see it in my mind, but I’m not sure what I am saying is translating into pictures in their minds. Your videos are fantastic. I can stop them and have the players see the position(s), whether swinging, fielding, or pitching. Players can then get into the same positions and look at the screen to see if they are in fact in that position. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    Not only great for athletes that are visual learners but great for all coaches. Wish all so called youth coaches would take a good long look at these videos.
    I coached for 37 years, during this time I was a head coach in six different sports including softball. I learned something from each segment. Thanks for sharing your expertise.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. GOD BLESS!!!

    I love these mini movie drills, they really get ideas rolling in your head. These drills you can’t do them enough. My girls think they know what they are doing until we hit these drills. Is it better to throw the balls for these fielding progression drills or it with a bat? Tahnks for all the good solid advice.

    Love what Sue is talking about and the few drills to correct pitching bad habits. We know there are so many more to work on with the new student. Anything she can throw at me i will watch, my mind is always open since i have been teaching for 25 years after pitching myself for 41 years. Matter of fact had the chance to play against Michael White and Bill Hillhouse over the years and have become a good friend of denny Tinscher.

    This was an excellent and extremely useful mini. My CYO team finished 1-5, wish I could solved some of our hitting problems. But I will now. Thanks for the information.

    I’m a youth coach in the Netherlands in Haarlem. I like all your video’s as far as I can see them.

    It proofs that I’m on the right way but it is difficult the get other people also on that way.

    But my thanks for the time you spent on it for us.

    Kind regards, Marleen Simon

    I am a new High School softball coach. Been around the game a long time and have been an assistant, but I need help with teaching the mechanics of pitching, fielding, & hitting. I would like to purchase a few videos for these techniques, any suggestions?
