Put your defense in position to be successful! Four-time national champ
George Wares delivers a mountain of defensive knowledge and strategy to help
your team develop an understanding of softball defense and make good decisions
when the game is on the line.
Wares' overall defensive philosophy is to avoid the big inning so he
encourages players to get the cheap out by making low-risk plays. This
emphasis allows his team to shorten innings and create easy-out opportunities.
Coach Wares starts by illustrating his two basic bunt coverages. Each
coverage is demonstrated with runners on first, second and third base and
includes variations of the coverage based on outs, inning and score. These
tactics will put your players in position to make right plays and get the out.
Next, Wares covers first and third situations. He explains how his team
approaches each play depending on the situation. Learn when to go for the out
or stop the run; play it conservative or take a chance.
In addition, you learn how to handle relay situations and rundowns.
Wares demonstrates how to drill each of these defensive situations and
emphasizes game-like practice to help your players understand the situations
and translate them into games.
Throughout the DVD, Wares provides a plethora of coaching tips and shows
how to adjust your defense based on outs, inning, base runners, and score.
With these philosophies and situational examples, you will be able to
prepare for anything your team faces!
