Description

with George Wares,
Central College Head Coach,
over 1,000 Career wins - winningest coach in NCAA Division III softball history;
Distinguished member of the National Fastpitch Coaches Hall of Fame (2007); 4x National Championship Coach

Don't wait for an opportunity to score-make your opportunities! This unique DVD combines two powerful elements for putting more runs on the board: Baserunning and the short game. George Wares shares the aggressive strategies that have been a big part of his 870+ career victories as a coach.

Aggressive baserunning can be the deciding factor in a close softball game. Coach Wares explains and demonstrates essential techniques and strategies at each base. He includes team drills to help you maximize practice time and improve the techniques--even if you have a small coaching staff. Also included are techniques for extra base hits and stealing situations.

Improve your baserunning with these essential techniques:

  • Getting down the first base line - Reach first base faster by using these simple techniques.
  • Rounding the bases - Take more extra bases this season with these aggressive strategies.
  • Jumping off and getting back - Maximize your lead and make the defense pay for even small errors.
  • Sliding head first - Eliminate the fear of diving and sliding head first with this simple drill progression.
  • Aggressive vs conservative base running - Produce more scoring opportunities with these base running strategies.

In addition to making your players better base runners, Wares' coaching cue words and base coaching concepts will improve your coaching at the bases.

The second phase of Wares' aggressive offense is the short game. Wares gives you a thorough small-ball lesson covering bunting and slapping techniques and game strategies.

You'll learn:

  • Three different styles of slapping footwork to maintain good balance and proper plate coverage
  • Tips to stay on the ball as long as possible for sharper slap hits.
  • How to read and react to the defense when you're slapping.
  • How to power slap to take advantage of a drawn-in infield.
  • Techniques to slap the outside pitch on a consistent basis.
  • How to bunt for a base hit on a defense that is playing back.
  • Drills to successfully execute a sacrifice bunt to advance runners.

By combining Wares' short game offense strategies with his aggressive base running techniques you can constantly pressure the defense to make difficult plays, increase the chances of defensive errors and improve your run totals.

Create more scoring opportunities for your team this season with this two-in-one DVD!

This was a very in-depth, high quality video in my opinion. I like how he teaches more of the aggressive type of base running approach but also gives the drawback that you will get out more often vs conservative play. Coach Wares is to-the-point with everything in the video. Covers some slapping and other situations on what runners should be doing or not be doing based on how the defense is playing. One thing I did notice, but isn't overly distracting, is that Coach Wares paces a lot back and forth and also speaks at a faster than normal pace. Looks like he's just got a lot of information to delivery and demonstrate but overall clear and easy to understand. I'd recommend this to any age group who wants to improve their offense. I personally liked how nearly every situation (outdoor) he had his girls sliding back to bases and the angle they took, it looked very disciplined and trained into his players with no hesitation.

Our high school team had 16 stolen bases in 2011. After implementing the baserunning strategies shown in this video our team went to 96 stolen bases in 2012 and 148 in 2013. It's amazing how many "free" bases are there for the taking. This video shows you how to get them.

This is a very solid tape and a good value. It gives a lot of fine points about game signals, dive backs, head first sliding, running the bases and how to get max reps in a limited space. I would have liked a bit more on how to bunt and slap (although the slap stuff is there). But I found it very useful and picked up a couple good drills. Over all very pleased.
