Pilbara News - - Sport - Bar­rie Sargeant

The West Pil­bara Soft­ball Or­gan­i­sa­tion put on a fun day last Satur­day to get more peo­ple in­volved in the sport.

The day turned out to be suc­cess­ful, with new and more ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers at­tend­ing the clin­ics.

The day was or­gan­ised and co-or­di­nated by vice-pres­i­dent of the WPSO Sharelle Clarke, while the clin­ics were run by Jan­ice Landy from Perth, who is a devel­op­ment coach.

Landy put res­i­dent coaches through var­i­ous stages of ba­sic coach­ing.

She also put the play­ers through a pitch­ing clinic and then a bat­ting clinic.

At the end of the evening, the play­ers took part in a scratch match to put their new skills to the test. From the gen­eral com­ments of all who at­tended, par­tic­i­pants had a great day and learnt many things about soft­ball.

Landy said she was pleased with the out­come and im­prove­ment of some the play­ers through­out the day.
