3 Ways to Succeed in the Circle
It’s obvious that pitching on any team is a vital role to succeed in at any level of softball. Pitching a good game helps your team get off the field and into the batter’s box.
The best mental tips to keeping your defense in the dugout are listed below, provided by Nike Softball Camp Director Annie Van Wetzinga from Metro State Denver:
- Have a swagger and presence on the mound: Develop a mindset that you are the best.
- Commit to every pitch: Each pitch is important. Commit to that pitch and hit your spot.
- Battle for your team: There’s a reason you are in the circle. Work hard and win each pitch.
Coach Van Wetzinga is big on confidence and enjoying your time in the circle.
