Next Up on the NFCC Schedule: Course 403: Position Play & Individual Defensive Skills Over Sept. 20-21

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The National Fastpitch Coaches College (NFCC) will continue its schedule over September 20-21 as Course 403: Position Play and Individual Defensive Skills (September 20-21 -- Hofstra University, Hempstead, N.Y.) will be held.

Registration for the course is available at https://nfca.org/index.php/nfcc-main-home-page or by calling (502) 409-4600. The cost is $225 for members and $250 for non-members. A discount of $100 is also being offered for programs that have more than one coach attend a class.  For programs with multiple coaches attending, the head coach will pay the regular price while any other members of the staff can participate for $100 off.

NFCA Hall of Famers Bill Edwards (current Hofstra head coach), Margie Wright (former Fresno State head coach) and Jay Miller (former Missouri and Mississippi State head coach) will lead Course 403: Position Play and Individual Defensive Skills over September 20-21 at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.

Course 403 emphasizes how to analyze and teach the skills required to play each of the nine softball positions. Those participating over two days of study will learn the mechanics of throwing, tossing and fielding, examine techniques used to cover bases, back up, check runners, retrieve balls and cut-off throws, identify and break down the skills required to play each defensive position, analyze and correct typical errors in performance, review and discuss situational game charts and accumulate drills for the practice of position play skills.

Course 403 is part of eight courses that make up the NFCC curriculum. Since it’s founding in 2002, the NFCC has been one of the cornerstones of the NFCA’s pledge to help continually educate softball coaches of all levels. Along with earning the title of “Four-Star Master Coach,” completion of the eight-course curriculum can also count towards a master’s degree in coaching from Texas Woman’s University.
