Hit It Off This Season with Your Ultimate Softball Gear Checklist

Be Ready to Win with Your Softball Gear Checklist

Nothing ruins practice or dampens your spirits during a game like broken, ill-fitting, or missing gear.  Print this checklist and use it to gather all of your equipment and get ready ahead of time so you can start the season off on the right foot. From cleats to pitching machines, we’ve got you covered. Share it with fellow coaches, your players, and team parents and guardians to make sure your team is good to go.

Pro tip: Even if you know you already have something on this list, make sure it’s in good condition and works properly before checking it off– particularly items like radar guns and bat warmers.
