Softball Academics Midwest (SAM) Tryouts July 24th

******TRYOUTS JULY 24th 2018   6-8pm--ALL AGES*******

Softball Academics Midwest is Indiana’s only travel program focused on developing the SIX tool player.  While the five physical skills indicate upside, the sixth tool, mental aptitude for the game, gives a better indication of ceiling and coachability.
 Our program is designed to accelerate growth both physically and mentally through the use of a Mental Training Curriculum, Offensive Approach Training, Pitching Approach Training, Baserunning Approach Training, J-Band Implementation, Hitting Metric/Diamond Kinetics Implementation, Visual Occlusion Training via Axon Sports, and Hand-Eye Training.  
Our players are expected to master the mental side of the game in order to perform better physically, and drills/practices are designed to help players convert mental understanding into physical skill.

2️⃣ Objective tracking of player improvement as we have partnered with Diamond Kinetics
