Improve Softball Throwing Velocity With Footwork

By Dan Blewett | Pitching

Helping girls to improve softball throwing velocity is one of our specialties, and it starts from the ground up. Without proper footwork, a player can’t get her hips into proper alignment and closed to her target. And if she can’t get her hips lined up properly, then she won’t get as much velocity from her hips and core. And if her hips and core aren’t helping to power her arm, then what we typically see is a low elbow and poor follow-through.

The human body works as an integrated unit – the “kinetic chain,” and good throwing mechanics start with good footwork. So, watch the video below for a thorough explanation of good footwork and how to work on it to start developing better softball throwing velocity.
