The WSAS Female Softball Squad attended a skills day at the Blacktown International Sports Park with South West Sydney Academy of Sport and the USA Academy teams on Saturday 9th July.
Our athletes were sorted into four groups with the other Academies and then allocated to different skill stations for specialised drills, across the stations the athletes worked on a variety of skills that will improve their gameplay including backhand throws, field movement, throwing mechanics and situational play. Our very own Assistant Coach Jack Rauhihi assisted one of the USA Coachs in running the hitting station.
Ending the day with a BBQ dinner the athletes, parents and coaching staff were able to form friendships with the other Academies and share their journeys and stories of being involved in the sport at a pre-elite level. A massive thank you to our Softball Parents who organised, cooked and served both lunch and dinner to all involved.
Special thanks to Assistant Coach Donna McGrath for organing this opportunity for our Female Squad and to Softball NSW for hosting this event.
