Now is a good time to work on throwing. I highly recommend checking out the eBook by Austin Wasserman at Wasserman Strength Training. It currently sells for $25. Also recommended for safe age-appropriate strength training are the Jaeger Sports sports bands.
Hit-a-thon is the one and only ‘FUN’-d raiser that SGSL has. SGSL girls compete against each other based on their age group for the longest hitter, longest thrower, fastest runner, most accurate thrower etc. It is a day filled with lots of fun. Ortega park transforms with bounce houses, BBQ, face painting and lots of other carnival type games. The winner of each category wins medals during closing day.
Don’t miss out the fun and in the process make sure you talk to friends and family about the event and fund raiser. All donations are tax deductible. Make sure to check if the company you work for match your donations. Thank you for making this event a success. These funds are used by SGSL to run all the clinics like pitching clinic, batting cages etc that benefit the SGSL players.
One of the most exciting features of spring softball season is the experience SGSL players have at the Sanford Softball game. SGSL players get to go meet the Stanford players and ask questions, take photos and get autographs. A few lucky early arrivals actually get to be interviewed by local TV stations and icing on the cake is of-course watching the Stanford girls play an awesome softball game!!
In March, the softball team from Santa Clara University visits the Ortega park in Sunnyvale and teach the SGSL players sliding, hitting, base running techniques. All players who are interested in the attending are welcome to attend the Clinic. This is provided free of cost to you by SGSL. So don’t miss your chance to get small group coaching by the softball players of Santa Clara University.
