Kaboom Softball is a club program in Northwest NJ. Our goals are to develop players, prepare them for High School, help them achieve postseason honors (All-Area, All-State, etc), and showcase those who would like to play at the next level. Our Fall and Winter training sessions are run by high school, college and club coaches. We have a wealth of experience and have had a lot of success in the last 5 years. We play top-level tournaments at 12-14u with the emphasis being on development as well as expectation. At the 16-18u level, we focus on High School success as well as college hopes. We had 9 All-Herald players this year and sent 4 out of 4 Seniors to play at the college level.
Softball is a game, and its easy to forget that sometimes. With the amount of pressure kids fall under to perform, we need to teach them about the significance of improvement. This isn't an easy game and we all need to remember that for the benefit of the kid.
Our program is designed to provide these young ladies with the opportunity to improve their game. Training sessions are upbeat, fast, with not a lot of words. I believe in the method of learn by doing, not explaining. There is no road map out there on the field, so at the end of the day success comes down to reaction and mechanics. You need to find a stimulating way to always be working on those things.
The key to development over time is consistency. The most consistence thing needs to be willingness to change as a player. Be willing to change your approach, your mechanics, and your mindset. There is no perfect walkway to success. It comes down to two things...willingness and work ethic.
