Softball Player Development

At Seattle Pride Fastpitch Academy, we are passionate about helping softball players reach their full potential and achieve excellence in the sport they love.

Basketball is a fast-paced sport that requires a combination of speed, strength, and agility. Proper training in these areas can significantly enhance your performance on the court. Here's a breakdown of each component and some training tips:

Training Approach : 

Speed - Perform short sprints (20-40 meters) with full rest between repetitions.

  • Plyometrics: Include exercises like box jumps, depth jumps, and bounds to enhance your explosive speed

.

  • Agility Ladder Drills: Practice various ladder drills to improve footwork, coordination, and quick direction changes.

  • Hill Sprints: Running uphill can help build leg strength and speed simultaneously.
