Knoxville Explosion! - Here Comes the Boom!
Knoxville Explosion Fast Pitch Softball Organization Takes a Stand Against Bullying PDF Print E-mail
Written by Joe Birchfield   


The Knoxville Explosion Fast Pitch Softball Organization is taking a stand against bullying. Children in the U.S. are being bullied by the millions and it has reached epic proportions. Because of our continued commitment to fostering excellence on and off of the field of play, we are taking a stand against bullies and bullying activities. A program has been developed that each of our players will be briefed, educating them as to what constitutes bully-like activities, how to prevent it and how to deal with bullies. Moreover, new organization rules have been implemented to prevent any of our players from bullying their teammates, opponents, coaches, umpires, and parents. We care about our players and want to arm them with the tools necessary to succeed in life! If you are interested in our anti-bullying program you can email Joe Birchfield at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ! Thanks Everyone!
 
Be a Student of the Game - Follow These Rules PDF Print E-mail
Written by Joe Birchfield   


Take small steps. Improvement is sometimes a slow process so don't get discouraged.  Many times, we've seen a player struggle throughout an entire year only to come back the next and be a different player.

·        Learn the game - practice matters.

·         Hustle - how you practice is how you play

·        Be competitive - play to win.

·         Respect and support each other – the golden rule

·        Respect yourself - no foul language or Personal remarks.

·        Play with poise - the game DOES start over with every pitch

·        Enjoy the game - and have fun being a part of it.

·        Take pride in what you do - never be content with mediocrity

·        Softball is a team sport but demands individual online bingo font-size: 14pt; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman';">effort

 Become a student of the game. There is always more to learn.

 

Have fun. Softball is a game.

 

There is no reason you can't improve while having fun.

 

Abe was right about study and preparation. Become as knowledgeable as you possibly can about the game of softball-There are a lot of half-truths and well meaning but inadequate coaching instruction at the youth level. A coach would do well to become a student of the game. As a player if you have dreams and not wishes, go to work on your dream. And then work some more. Work separates the great from the average. If there are two players of equal talent, the one who studies and works harder will always win in the long run.  There is no magical substitute for work, no instant drill to make you succeed, no one piece of advice that will put it all together.

 

One other suggestion: Be patient.

 

Take small steps. Improvement is sometimes a slow process so don't get discouraged. Many times, we've seen a player struggle throughout an entire year only to come back the next and be a different player.
