with Tim Walton, University of Florida Head Coach; 2008 Women's College World Series semifinalists; 2008 SEC Coach of the Year.
Coach Walton is an expert on getting the most out of his team. In this excellent softball DVD, he presents the extensive practice schedule that contributed to the Gator's record setting 70-win season. With the help of Steve Orris, Florida's Strength & Conditioning Coordinator, the practice kicks off with a 20-minute set of stretches and agility drills, followed by Walton's throw-and-catch isolation drills. These drills work on throwing technique by concentrating on specific parts of the player's body. From there, Coach Walton gives you an in-depth look at his team's defense. Walton runs the Gators through multiple defensive situations including different types of bunt defenses, slap defense, baserunning situations and more. Walton then presents various offensive situations, incorporating the entire team through different stations for hitting, pitching, baserunning and fielding. Finally, Walton discusses the importance of baserunning, which he demonstrates through a series of drills emphasizing various offensive situations such as stealing, running on a bunt and pass balls. This DVD is an excellent tool for coaches at any level.
