SEATTLE - Softball Head Coach Heather Tarr will be speaking at the National Softball Coaches Clinic in Portland, Ore. Jan. 18-19, 2013. The clinic is a great place for coaches who are looking to take their coaching to the next level.
Tarr will be speaking about many different topics of softball coaching. Throughout the day on the 18th she will give a total of three speeches. Her first talk at 1 p.m. is on how to establish an offensive culture that applies pressure to the defense.
Her next speech at 3:30 p.m. is about quick, efficient drills to become a quick and efficient fielder. Her last talk of the day is about recruiting at 7 p.m. There she will go over a college coach's wants and needs in regards to the recruiting process.
To register for the National Softball Coaches Clinic go here.
The clinic is $109 for adults if you pre-register, $65 for full-time students, and $119 for adults at-the-door.
This clinic is a good chance for coaches from different areas of the country to learn from college softball coaches. It also gives coaches the chance to meet and discuss their coaching techniques with other coaches attending the clinic.
More than 25 years ago Marry Nutter started the National Softball Clinic so coaches of all skill levels could get the chance to learn from the best coaches in the country. Nutter passed away this past July from a heart attack. Her affect on the game of softball will be a lasting one. She coached softball at Michigan State and Pittsburg and was inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame in 1988 and the NFCA Hall of Fame in 1997.
The annual Cathedral City Classic softball tournament in Palm Springs, Calif., has been re-named to the Marry Nutter Classic in honor of her impact on the softball world. The Huskies will play in that tournament Feb. 21-23. Tickets for that tournament will go on sale shortly through the University of Washington.
