Varsity Softball Program Philosophy
The varsity softball program advances softball knowledge from what is taught in middle school. Expectations will be higher, practices more intense, and there will be more emphasis on winning. The ultimate goal is to win the SPC championship.
A program goal is to be the best offense in the SPC, which means scoring a lot of runs. Goal attainment tactics include practicing moving runners, timely hitting, and being very aggressive on the bases. Game strategy taught will be for players to go first to third on a bunt, and force the defense to make plays. Practices will focus on execution in order to improve game performance. Base runners will learn to recognize a sign to be off when they see the hitter hit a ball on the ground. With a runner at third, this aggressive style of base-running will allow the team to score more runs and puts pressure on the defense. Emphasis will be on good hitting technique, as the game needs the long-ball.
