Here are the latest articles from the Softball site at BellaOnline.com.


When to use the DP FLEX in Softball

Understood and managed correctly, the DP/FLEX can turn a good team into a great team, hiding weaknesses and emphasizing strengths. This article looks at various implementations of the DP/FLEX that I have used, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each type of pairing.

The DP and FLEX in Softball

The DP and FLEX players tend to be a great mystery, particularly to rec league coaches that don't normally have to worry about substitutions. However, fully understanding the DP/FLEX rule is a valuable tool for any coach to use when substitutions matter, like bracket play in tournaments.

Softball Offseason Conditioning with Calisthenics

Off-season conditioning is just as important for the Softball player as in-season practice time. A player who is in shape at the first practice is more likely to avoid injury and impress her coach. She'll be able to focus on improving her play instead of just keeping up.

Here are this week's (and last week's) Christmas recommendations. Click on the links for my full review:


Coaching Fastpitch Softball Successfully

5 Stars. The best overall book I have found on managing and coaching a team. It is written with the travel/high school/college program in mind, but there is so much valuable and unique information in this reference that EVERY coach should have it, and use it often!

SKLZ Reaction Ball

4 stars. If you are looking for a great individual or coaching tool for developing quicker hands and better defense, look no further. This crazy thing is fun to play with and makes for a great fielding station.
