Try Something New
Get out of your comfort zone this year and try something new. Whether it's a new sport or just a new skill on the softball field. College recruiters love watching athletes who can adapt to new situations- learning a new skill will help you on and off the field.
Remember to Stay Positive
Staying positive during an unsuccessful season or a loss is the most effective way to move forward and focus on what's ahead. You can't change a negative situation by being negative. Learn from it and move on.
Make Time for School
No matter how good you are at softball if your grades are suffering you might not be allowed to play. Most schools require at least a 2.0 GPA to be eligible to play sports (source). Set aside time every night before or after practice to get your school work done and read at least a chapter a night to keep the information you learned in class fresh in your mind. By the time test day comes around you will do better than if you crammed the night before.
