Team Bonding

Team Bonding

Team bonding may seem like just a way for girls to get together outside of softball, but the benefits can contribute immensely to team chemistry. Gathering players together outside of softball allows them to learn more about each other. Building strong team chemistry creates a bond that can significantly affect play. All teams have a common goal, but the team is “all in” to achieving those goals and has a greater chance of thriving. Coaches will often create competitive environments where players will compete within their team for playing time, creating a competitive drive. Still, it is essential to realize that the team as a whole must work together at the end of the day. Team bonding should be a fun, positive environment where the girls can relax. For competitive players, there are times where softball takes up weekends and weeknights in their schedule, which can cause them to miss out on school-related activities. This can be a time where they just get to be kids. Below, Fastpitch Masters has compiled a list of things to do for team bonding.
