2017 Softball Season
Winterboro Softball Philosophy
Welcome to the Winterboro High
School Girls’ Softball Program. In the following slides, you will find the philosophy and
goals that will help continue to build upon the past successes of the
program as well as serving to maintain a positive, winning atmosphere
both on and off the softball diamond.
If we are able to attain any of the goals which we have set for ourselves, it is important that each athlete is willing to commit herself to the following priority schedule:
-Essential family and religious commitments (vacation not included)
-Academic progress and responsibilities (classwork, mandatory school-sponsored functions)
-Any out-of-season sports or other outside activities (i.e. work, vacations, leisure activities)
-Practice time are variant due to weather and the amount of daylight.
- Practices will start at 3:15 and will conclude around 4:30 until the days get longer.
-I TRY to let them out as close to that time as possible. I have a family to get home to and I know you do as well. Your time with your kids is valuable to me.
-My child needs his parents as well as your kids, so I try to get them out on time.
You are expected to attend all
practices and games unless you are ill, academically ineligible, or have
been previously excused by your coaches. Athletes are expected to bring
a note for any absence or anticipated family commitment. Failure to
follow this procedure will result in the “coaches option penalty”.
-Take away playing time
You are a select athlete and will be
expected to perform as one. This means that when you come to practice,
or to a game, you should bring an attitude that is conductive to the
progress of the team. You must try to leave behind you all the
frustration of the day, or anything else that will detract you from your
performance on the field. We, as a coaching staff, will maintain a
positive attitude toward you. There will be times when you will be
confronted with mistakes you have made. We ask that you use this
constructive feedback as it is intended.
Dressing for Practice
Unless it is raining or extremely
cold, we will go outside to practice, therefore, you need to come
prepared. Please have proper clothing for both indoor and outdoor
practices. Proper outdoor attire is softball pants with socks.If you don't have that ask some of your teammates they have extra. Shirts/ hoodie are acceptable. I prefer Winterboro attire. That shows pride in your school and also your teammates. However, do not wear a shirt or jacket from another school. You represent Winterboro.
Playing time is non-negotiable. Coaches are responsible for the determination of playing time based on what is witnessed on a daily basis in practice. Playing ability is not the only variable in the decision of playing time. In addition to playing ability, coaches will focus on coachability, punctuality, team chemistry, effort, motivation, attitude, and overall desire to make the team better in the decision of who will receive playing time. We will strive to field the best team possible to achieve our team goals.
Playing Time Cont.
As coaches, we do not discuss playing time with parents. I will tell you the ways that you daughter can improve so that she may get more playing time. Each player is given ample opportunity to gain playing time and improve before the season starts and during the season.
