WEEK #9


Hi SJPians!

 

 

THIS WEEK:

                

GREAT READ for coaches, parents and educators…

Lessons in Growth and Maturation: He is going to be a big kid!

By Joel Eisenmann, PHD (professor, strength coach, sports scientist in LTAD…)

 

MOVEMENT TIME

Building Agility: [Letter Agility video clip]

 

 

BASEBALL TIME

 

PITCHING

INFIELD

WHAT & WHY? Throwing accuracy + Quick transfers + It’s fun!  

HOW? Video clip: [Ichiro the Magician]

 

HITTING

HITTING APPROACH

Clutch hitting with 2 strikes, & an example of a competitive at-bat, by NYY Outfielder, Brett Gardner, 2017 ALDS, Game 5 vs Indians.

MENTAL GAME TIME

Focus 101

WHAT? Concentration Grids - see attached for 3x C.Grids

WHY? Helps you focus on this one thing in front of you (mental acuity); helps remain focussed in spite of distractions around you; build capacity for self-awareness

HOW? Time how long it takes you to find (mark off on the grid itself) all the numbers starting from 1 to 100. Record your time and keep progress to see your improvements.

VARIATIONS? Are there ways to challenge this activity. I can think of several…

 

 

Be blessed. Or be a blessing.
