It seems like a lifetime ago, but I still remember when I started coaching my daughters fastpitch softball team. I had played a little baseball growing up, and some slowpitch softball along the way too.
I soon found out two things. One is that fastpitch softball was a sport of its own. While so many thing are the same. There are many thing that are different in fastpitch softball than baseball, or slowpitch softball.
Two is that I knew nothing about coaching fastpitch softball players at all. Playing sports had not really taught me how to coach.
One of the main things new coaches are looking for is information. This book is my attempt to provide another source for that information.
While I admit I did not come up with these pitching drills. Many of them have probably been used for years, and years. What I did was find many of the great pitching drills I used with my pitchers while coaching. Then I wrote them in an easy to understand format. Trying to make them easy to learn and use.
While this may be a guide for coaches to help their young pitchers, this is also be a great resource for parents hoping to help their daughters become better fastpitch softball pitchers.
