Hello from CoachDeck!
Now that the 2010 baseball season is winding down, we'd like to thank our thousands of customers for allowing us to be part of their coach education programs. We hope we've inspired your volunteers to run more fun and effective practices and we'll continue to strive to provide your organization with the best training tools available.
Our softball deck is coming! We're excited to announce that we've partnered with former UCLA National Championship coach, Sue Enquist
, to provide her expertise. Sue brings a wealth of knowledge, which will make our softball product a sure-fire winner!
Want a great drill to teach your hitters to stay back in the zone? Former professional Chance Reynolds has provided an outstanding and simple drill
you can do with kids of all ages. And, how many times have you watched a perfect pitch hit the catcher's mitt - only to have it called a ball? It could be that the umpire wasn't blind, but your catcher cost you the call. Brian Gotta's article
gives you three adjustments you can teach your catchers to make to ensure your pitchers get every strike they should.
