Private Softball Lessons: Pitching Instruction

137216653 300x200 Private Softball Lessons: Pitching InstructionThe windmill wind-up is one of the most impressive things to watch in softball, particularly for those who realize how wild a poorly executed release can be. The pitching instructors at America’s Pastime Sports in Albuquerque can help you master the mechanics of softball pitching so that you have the control you need to become one of the best defensive assets your team has.

Our Approach to Pitching Instruction

Baseball pitching skills do not translate to softball because the mechanics are completely different, which means, the approach behind softball pitching instruction must be totally different, too. To be an effective softball pitcher, you must master:

  • Control—pitches over the plate, in the strike zone
  • Ball movement—pitches that rise or drop as they approach the batter
  • Speed—fast or effective off-speed pitches

To achieve mastery of these aspects of softball pitching, instruction at America’s Pastime Sports focuses on three basic fundamentals:

  • Balance
  • Rhythm
  • Spin

Most softball pitching instruction is conducted in the non-machine cages equipped with pitching mounds where pitchers develop skills through repetition of “textbook” execution. However, some softball pitching lessons may entail the use of other strength training and agility equipment to develop the muscles needed for increased speed and effective spin.

Softball Pitching Instruction for All Levels

The softball pitching instructors at America’s Pastime Sports are experienced players and coaches. Not only do they know they game, they know how to teach it to players of all ages and ability levels. So, whether you want to become a softball pitcher to see more playing time or you want to make yourself a more competitive candidate for a scholarship, our coaches can help you take your ability to the next level.

All players need to bring to private softball pitching lessons is their own glove. Instructors will help with warm-ups and then proceed with personalized instruction.
