Today, Sun 11 May we finallygot to play our first doubleheader for the new softball season with the BULLS team.
The first two playing days had not beenused due to rain delays and resting days… so we were the only ones still to start our season !
Waiting was anyway worth while : our first two games were two sound wins – 10-0 and 9-2 and this set the good mood for the whole team.
Now we’ll go on playing our season until August 3rd.

We’ll keep you posted !

 

Coachlilly website renewed

woodstock

At the beginning of the new year I am glad to introduce you to the new section of my website , dedicated to baseball and softball under 10.
After 25 years of coaching I have actually started working with very young children in kindergarden and primary school programs, trying to adapt our sports to an approach suitable for this very particular age.
Dealing with children under 10 ( and their families ) involves extra knowledge and experience which I think will never be enough.
The new website section – PRIMI SWING ( First swings ) will work as a repository of useful materials to share with all coaches interested in starting developing programmes for youth baseball and softball.
The first contributions are translations from the English ( mostly from specialized websites such as Positive Coaching Alliance ) but more will be coming in different languages soon.

Let me invite you to come and visit Coachlilly.com !

Another season with the Bulls !

Another year is about to end, another season is approaching.
The good things remain, others change.
What matters most, the good friends and the high spirit are still with us and they have their home in our team.
The BULLS wish all friends all the best in the new year and for the upcoming season !

It was really nice to see some good old friends and work with them in softball again in Germany. The German National Team is really working hard to reach the edge of the highest European level  with their young but motivated team.

Thanks a lot for having me with them as a hitting instructor and in Paderborn for the German Softball Academy in January.
