Only things we were catching was fish – No softballs

Have you ever felt burnt out from the activities and things you are required to do day in and day out?  Well, we took a BREAK from all of that last week.  Sometimes you just have to unplug and just leave it all behind to refresh your spirit.  Specially in this day and age we live in, plugged in all the time, it was really a treat to leave it all behind.  Nature is like a battery charger for our spirits.  The only things the kids were catching were fish and catching up on the Zzzz..

catching fishMost of the time last week, we didn’t even know what time it was or what day it was.  It was a great feeling!  Have you ever experienced it, not knowing what day or time it is?  I am not asking about the time you got hit in the head from your kids throwing  the softball while playing catch 😉  If not, try it sometime, without getting amnesia. It is a great feeling.

We also experienced what is called “Rain” while we were out. Extreme amounts of it in short period of time.  I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn’t driving while it poured down. Well, it will be back to reality this week.  The kids have already been warned to start hydrating from Wednesday for the weekend tournament in central valley since it is going to be extremely hot.

I get at least a few questions every month from parents asking for recommendation for softball training for their kids who are age 14 and up.  I just wanted to add a little info here if that will help them.  If your kids have played at a B or C ball level tournament and you are looking for more training, and if you live in the Bay area, you can have them go to a softball camp run by either the college teams or Nike sports camp or Cutting edge softball camps etc.  I have listed some options under the softball summer camps area.  If you are looking for a 14 U and up travel ball “A” team, then you can see the list by clicking the link above and check their website or contact their head coach to see if they are looking for players and what position they are looking for and when their tryouts are.  There is no one team that will make everyone happy.  It is a trial and error process and you have to try to see if the team’s teaching methods and training works for your kids.

I hope everyone had a good 4th of July weekend.  Back to reality now! Thanks for reading.

 

Would love to hear from you :-)
