    Coach's Guide to Game-Winning Softball Drills

    Developing the Essential Skills in Every Player

    By Olympic Gold Medalist Michele Smith and Lawrence Hsieh (McGraw-Hill 2008)

    2-time Olympic Gold Medalist Michele Smith teams up with Lawrence Hsieh to provide softball coaches and parents of novice, intermediate and advanced players ages from 9 to 18 years old (Grade 4 through high school) all the tools needed to teach and drill the entire range of offensive and defensive softball skills. Each of the 8 chapters contains both a skills section and a drills section. The skills section of each chapter is a coaching manual that contains all the detailed information you’ll need to teach your players the fundamentals. The drills sections contain a comprehensive suite of drills on Hitting, Base Running, Infield and Outfield Defense (by position), Pitching, Catcher (the position), Throwing and Catching, Fielding Footwork and Pre-Game Drills.

    "A great resource that every coach should have in his or her library... from one of our sport's greatest players ever." Coach Mike Candrea, Olympic Gold Medal Coach and 8-Time NCAA Champion.
