A new season’s about to start and lots of you will be wondering: How will my team do? How will the opposition do? (and the more obsessed among you will be doing a lot more wondering than those with a better softball-life balance.) Players come and go during the off-season due to visas, babies, jobs etc., and teams can change massively from one year to the next...But what’s gonna happen in this coming season for the GLSML Minors?
Batter Up! A baseball quizWashington Post (blog)By George F. Will By George F. Will | 07:30 PM ET, 03/30/2012 Washingtologists consistently post thought-provoking, timely comments on events, communities, and trends in the Washington area.
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.”
With winter finally behind us, the teams in the Greater London Softball Mixed League are gearing up for another exciting summer of weekday co-ed softball. Teams throughout London have already begun flocking to the pitches, commons, parks and fields to shake the rust off their swings in preparation for the season to come.
See the GLSML website to preview the 2012 GLSML Majors season with an individual look at each team, including how they performed in 2011 and what they should have in store for their opposition in 2012...
As part of development training GLSML will be putting together a Softball Shorts day over Primrose Hill on Sunday the 6th May. Starting at 11am on til 1pm and the location will be pitch 3.
It will be a session involving drills and practices to help players develop basic skills in throwing, fielding and batting. The cost will be £3 per person and the money raised above expenses will go back into the development fund.
Anyone who would like to help out on the day are also more than welcome -please get in touch with email@example.com
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.
