All Skills ProgramThe daily program will emphasize the following skills:  throwing, fielding, the short game and hitting.  In addition, fundamentals of each position (double-plays, covering bases, cutoffs, etc.) and defensive and offensive strategies will be covered.  This program includes base running, sliding, selecting the proper equipment for the individual position and live game situations.

Pitchers & Catchers Program Each day the pitchers and catchers will spend the first half of the clinic working on specific skills for their position. Pitchers will learn the correct fundamentals of windmill pitching including: how to grip and snap the 2 and 4 seam fastball, drills to improve arm circle speed and mechanics, drills to improve balance and explosion in the pitching motion.  The goal of clinic is to improve accuracy and speed. The beginning pitchers will work on Change-ups and the advance pitchers will work on spins for various pitches.  All pitchers will work on fielding position, and how to set batters up. There will be daily strength and speed stations for pitchers and catchers.   All pitcher speeds will be checked via radar gun and spin rotation via the Rev Fire.  The catcher skill work will include learning the proper stances, framing, throwing techniques, blocking, pick off plays, fielding bunts, passed balls and how to call a game.

Calling all Softball Fans...SGSL Needs You!
Southington Girls Softball League is made up largely of volunteers, and the operation of the league is comprised of many activities that take place 'behind the scenes'. Did you know that we have:

 

  • A Field Maintenance Committee to keep our 10 playing fields - dedicated solely to Southington girls in grades K-12 - in a good and safe condition;
  • Various pre-season Organization Committees;
  • A Concession Stand Committee to help in the operation of our main source of income;
  • A Fundraising Committee,
  • An End of Season celebration Committee,
  • Charity tournaments Committees, 
  • and much more.

All of this activity is done for the benefit of all our girls by volunteers. SGSL is one of the finest, if not the finest, facility within the state of Connecticut, dedicated to girls' softball. Comments validating this have been made year after year by coaches and officials both within and outside of the Town of Southington. However, none of this happens without your help.

It's true that everyone has a busy schedule these days, but just a few hours of your time can be an invaluable contribution to both the league and to our girls' total experience of the sport. So please, ask any of our Executive Board members how you can get involved and take pride in knowing that your contribution helped to make treasured memories on these fields for your young girl to last a lifetime.

On behalf of the  SGSL Executive Board, thank you,

Mike Konopka
President, Southington Girls Softball League
