What if you could guarantee your softball instruction was effective each and every time you worked with a student-athlete?
 
You know at this point in your career… just because you know what you’re talking about, doesn’t guarantee you’ll be able to help a player reach her potential. Great softball instruction is about more than that. It’s about meeting each individual player where she’s at.. on that particular day… over and over.
 
Sounds exhausting, right? But it’s all about having strong core values within your instruction. If everyone is different, what about the way you teach and observe and explain will be consistent?
 
Today’s guest is Kasey Lovell, and she shares some of the softball instruction techniques and philosophies she uses with her student-athletes. She’s a former Division I player from Lipscomb University who now Owns her own instruction business: On Purpose Softball Training. She also shares her insights and talks with influential guests on her brand new 951 Podcast, which will air January 13th!
 
 

Softball instruction should ALWAYS be on purpose

Great instruction is not about covering everything in one sitting or fixing everything and creating a perfect performer. On the contrary! Great instruction challenges the athlete and teaches them how to problem-solve.
 
The trick is choosing the focus for that day. And that’s where we can help!
 

Let us guide your softball instruction focus!

If you’re looking for a simple, yet impactful activity to do with your athletes each week, check out our mindset and confidence journal: Win, Fail, Learn.
 
To build a positive team where everyone is bought-in to the team vision and playing for each other, you can now purchase our Culture training on its own!
 
If you’re really committed to developing a confident, resilient team that feels like family… And you’re the type of coach who believes in lifelong learning and doing anything you can to make a positive impact on your girls’ lives… Then check out our Softball Mental Training Toolkit!
 
And finally, if you agree with everything I just mentioned but you would rather invest in a professional to run a complete program specifically for your team… Get Alicia to consult with your team! She’ll run trainings with your girls and provide personalized feedback to help create a positive, successful, sustainable culture. Simply reach out to alicia@mentalsweetspot.com and we’ll start the conversation! Act fast though: she only has a couple spots available!
 
Still curious and wanna know more for leveling up your softball instruction?
 
focus on the positive focus on the positive
 
That’s all for this week! Hope so see you back here soon!

Phenomenal information

As a new coach that believes in the mental game being so important, the podcasts and group discussions online have been amazing. Thank you ladies so much! Just knowing that the day to day struggles and doubts are felt by so many others has been remarkably reassuring. Thank you for what you are giving to others in the sport.

5 Star Podcasts!

I love listening to your podcasts while out on a run or on my way to work. They are focused and give me one or two pieces of inspiration to focus on with my team for the week. I have implemented a few key words (like "supportive") and have gotten huge returns from it! Keep up the great work!!

Mental Toughness

As a softball coach and a teacher, I appreciate all of the strategies and advice that Melanie shares each week! She is so inspiring, knowledgeable about the mental game, and willing to help in any way! One tip that really resonates with me is learning how to understand which things in life you are able to control, and what is out of your control. I teach these skills on the field and in the classroom! Thank you for all of the support and encouragement!

I love being part of the Mental Sweet Spot because it helps me think outside of the box to help our team grow mentally. I’ve noticed with the techniques and advice from Melanie and others in her Facebook Group I’ve help my team not only grow mentally but athletically as well. Mental toughness will help your team on the field as well and Melanie’s advice has proven that time and time again.
