Quiz The Coach: I'm A Softball Star

Competitive Softball
Competitive Softball

Hey Coach,

I play competitive softball (ASA). My friends, my teachers and my whole entire SCHOOL don't believe me because they all play rec softball, which is less competitive. They all think that I am lying!!!!! My PE coaches are the only ones that believe me! And that is only because they teach SPORTS!!! Trust me, I have tried sooooooooooooooo many things! JUST PLEASE HELP ME AND GIVE ME SOME ADVICE!!

Dear softball luver,

Playing competitive softball to impress your friends shouldn't be your biggest priority. And besides, most people aren't impressed anyways when you talk about your own achievements. Even if you were to get your parents to film your playing softball, and you made some spectacular all-star plays, and then you played it on a big-screen projector at your school assembly, you'd run the risk of looking very conceited (that means all about yourself). So be careful whenever you feel yourself trying to impress your friends.


People are more impressed when you don’t try to show off and you just let your actions and abilities speak for themselves. Ask your PE teacher to run a softball game during class and play your best - everyone will see that you're talented and you won't have to say a word.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.
