OFFENSE:
The offensive sessions will focus on teaching the fundamentals to help players become better offensively. The sessions will include an overview of hitting and bunting and provide players with a number of drills to help incorporate the fundamentals into the various areas of offense. The baserunning portion will be designed to show players techniques and tricks to help them become bigger threats on the base paths! The offensive portions are great for players who need a review of hitting and baserunning or for players who are just starting out.
DEFENSE:
The defensive sessions will focus on teaching the fundamentals to help players become better defensively. These sessions will include an overview of infield and outfield drills and will break down the throwing techniques to help players become more consistent and sound with their defensive skills. The defensive portions are designed to take you from the basic fundamentals to high skill level techniques. Whether you are an infielder, outfielder or catcher, all defensive will learn valuable skill sets from these sessions.
PITCHING:
The pitching sessions will focus on teaching the fundamentals to help players become better pitchers. These sessions will break down pitching mechanics and techniques. In addition, for the more experienced pitchers, specific pitch mechanics will be taught.

Assistant coaches and players from BC softball will serve as assistant instructors to ensure a proper participant instructor ratio of approximately 6:1. Parents and coaches are encouraged to watch, ask questions, and provide reflective commentary on instructor quality. We value this input and have used this to improve our quality of instruction.
