Fastpitch softball has become extremely competitive, particularly at the travel or select level. It has become an expensive sport to participate in and even more expensive to excel at, with the added cost of private hitting, pitching or conditioning instructors. Yet most every parent neglects the one piece of the puzzle that can skyrocket their player's softball performance and enjoyment of the game: Mental Skills Training.

Wrong or distorted thinking leads to anxiety, fear, lack of focus or concentration and inconsistent performance at best...poor performance at worst. For your player the challenge then becomes thinking the same way and getting the same game results. You see her game results will not change unless her thinking changes, and her thinking won't change unless she possess the skills to understand the connection of her thinking, feelings and actions.
