Little League Softball Offering Instructional CD by RightView Pro
In an effort to increase the educational and training resources available to Little League Softball players and coaches, Little League Softball has partnered with RightView Pro to offer its participants a CD entitled “Hitting With the Champions.” The instructional video includes 23 tutorial lessons on hitting as well as various drills and coaching tips.
The CD is available through Little League’s Online Store (www.littleleaguestore.net/) and also will be offered as part of the Little League Coaches Toolkit (www.littleleague.org/managersandcoaches/coachestoolkit/sblevel.htm). If successful, more RightView Pro educational and training materials will be made available, including CDs to help every player and coach from the novice to the most accomplished.
Two of the top collegiate softball coaches in the country, Mike Candrea and Sue Enquist, have collaborated on this powerful series of instructional video lessons. The CD explains what the coaches look for and the importance at each key position in the swing, and then provide drills that help reinforce the correct moves with easy-to-follow examples and helpful lessons from Mr. Candrea, U.S. Olympic Head Coach and Head Coach of the University of Arizona, and Ms. Enquist, an 11-time NCAA Champion as a player and coach at UCLA.
“This is a step forward that increases our training resources for Little League Softball players and coaches,” Sara Thompson, Director of Softball Development, said. “We hope to offer other sample RightView Pro content for coaches in the Little League Coaches Resource Center and the Coaches Box Newsletter in the near future.”
In 2010, Little League Softball had 344,910 players worldwide and nearly 23,000 teams. Little League Softball offers divisions of play for children age 4 through age 18. An International Tournament is played in four Little League divisions, Little League (ages 11-12 years-old), Junior League (13-14), Senior League (13-16) and Big League (14-18), each summer, culminating in a World Series. The championship game of each World Series is broadcast live by ESPN and its family of networks.
