Started Oct 31, 2016 0 Replies

Anybody know of a good Scheduling App? I don't need to schedule an entire league, just the 10-11yr old girls softball level. So I'm wondering if there is a free app/software that someone recommends.…Continue

Richard Lovell replied to Jose M Hernandez's discussion H.S. Tryouts... in the group Pitching Coaches and Instructors
"Yes...start in August...but seriously folks...I would suggest begin throwing, obviously, and increase distance each week out to about 120 feet. More to that, but that is the gist. I would also find a qualified hitting instructor that uses video and…"

Grant Clifford replied to Jose M Hernandez's discussion H.S. Tryouts... in the group Let's talk hitting Mechanics
"Great point. Video is so easy these days. iPhone/Samsung, any smartphone has video capabilities that will work. Even if you don't have the budget to pay an experienced hitting coach to evaluate the video, it's helpful just to see. Kids can…"

David LeVine replied to Jose M Hernandez's discussion H.S. Tryouts... in the group Recruit Me
"One area I have noticed over the years is a lot of throwing before tryouts.  Parents encourage their kids to do a lot to build up their arms.  They feel the more they do it, the better their son's chances of making the team.…"

Richard Lovell replied to Jose M Hernandez's discussion H.S. Tryouts... in the group Let's talk hitting Mechanics
"Not trying to be a smart-aleck, but starting 4-6 weeks before for conditioning, 3-4 weeks before tryouts to get the arm in shape and probably the same for getting the bat back in tune-if you've been off prior and not playing any ball. Since you…"
