Softball Shorts Day Review > GLSML

Softball Shorts Day Review > GLSML | Newsletter | Scoop.it

The first Softball Shorts day took place last Sunday over Primrose Hill, the idea is to teach people the basics with some 15min drills and exercises run by four coaches.

Although it was an overcast day the rain did keep off and we enjoyed 3 hours of intense training.

 

The 23 attendees were split into smaller groups of six players and they moved around each drill from throwing, fielding, batting, infield plays and rundowns.

 

Those that still had some energy left finished the session with a short friendly to put their new skills in action.

 

With more coaches we could make the drills more varied and teach more people, so anyone with coaching skills please contact Phil Candice

 

 

Hopefully we can arrange another Softball Shorts day next month and we will post full details on this site.

 

 

Some reviews from the day:

 

“Thanks again for organising Sunday. I found it really useful. A good variety of drills and a decent bit of running around to keep us warm (and fit!). I’m always keen for more batting skills practice but I know that’s not always easy in larger groups. Off to the batting cages for me!”

 

“The friendly was a great way to end the day, and really put the skills to test”

“I do hope that there will be more regular sessions, I know that I picked up so much that afternoon”

 

“I thought the session was a brilliant idea. It was great as a rookie to get an idea of some of the skills you need and a few tips and hints. The end of session game was great to consolidate what we’d learnt during the sessions. One-the game training is probably the best way to understand rules and the like so the focus on skills training was much appreciated.”

GLSML Development Nights!

GLSML Development Nights! | Newsletter | Scoop.it


Whether you are new or have had some experience in softball, you are welcome along to the GLMSL development nights, casual, informal sessions to learn more about the game. These are run over Regents Park throughout this summer, starting Monday the 11th of June and run for the next 11 Monday nights.


The goal behind the sessions is to bring all the people together who are interested in playing, teach them over the summer on how to play the game, but more importantly how to become a team!


We provide all the equipment and run each session with an emphasis on enjoying the game and having fun at the top of the list while slowly building your confidence and skills so that you can enjoy being part of a growing sport. This, of course, will be followed by some time in the pub after each session to get to know each other.


Cost is £3 per person, per session, but the bulk of the money is given back to the group as a first year’s registration into the league if they form into a team and enter the GLMSL the following year.


For more information, contact Phil Candice
