All girls deserve the chance to reach their fullest potential, becoming better pitchers, athletes, and confident young women. I believe that in order to be a great softball pitcher you need to be the best athlete you can be. This means being able to move with ease and grace and being able to outwork your competition. With the help of our functional fitness & strength coaches, the girls are able to gain knowledge of how their bodies work and are able to perform to their best abilities. Everyone at True Grind Systems is committed to helping your daughter succeed at the next level.
Softball Coaching with Compassion & Fun
When instructing pitching I like to communicate in ways that not only make it easy for the girls to understand but in ways that make it fun for them as well. At the end of each session I want the girls to leave with more knowledge and excitement than they came with. Pitching should be fun and enjoyable so I make the instruction and practice the same way. Patience is the key to keeping the environment light and fun. We’ve all seen those instructors that scream and yell at the athletes and get nowhere, there is no trust within the instructor/pitcher relationship and there is definitely no fun. Being able to patiently communicate the instruction in a fun way is going to develop trust, confidence, and a deeper love for the game.
Softball Lessons with State of the Art Equipment
When you bring your daughter to True Grind Systems you are not only allowing her to work with some of the best coaches but also allowing her to work with some of the best equipment in the game of both softball and baseball. When giving pitching instructions, one of the devices that I like to utilize is our Rapsodo Pitching Monitor. The Rapsodo is a device that allows us to see real data on each pitch. It measures speed, spin rate, spin efficiency, spin axis, and horizontal and vertical break all on a 3D ball flight. I love using this because it allows me to show the pitchers exactly how each pitch is moving and how to fix it all in a way that they can visibly see and is easier for them to comprehend. The instant feedback is the what separates this piece of technology and allows me to be more efficient with my coaching.
Another piece of equipment that I fully believe in is the Core Velocity Belt. We use this to help the girls get a better feel of how their hips move and feel while pitching. The belt allows the girls to feel how their hips are suppose to move, as well as building strength through these proper movement patterns.
Our Hitting development includes our indoor batting cage with HitTrax to show how batted balls would perform in MLB stadiums (with adjustments by age), measuring exit velocity and launch angles.
With the commitment of our team and the access to the most advanced and up to date equipment, I strive to give every pitcher the best opportunity to reach her fullest potential.
