Saturday the softball team held a Little League clinic. Approximately 50 girls from 6 to 12 attended and had a blast -- as did the BHS Cougar team and coaching staff!
My name is Fred Miller new Varsity Softball Coach at BHS.
My Assistant Coach is Bill Baker and our JV Head Coach is Dan Birr, who most of you already know since Dan has been with Bothell softball for some time now.
I have been coaching softball for about 14 years - currently coaching a 14U WA Ladyhawks select team. This will not interfere with my job at Bothell. I have coached youth sports for the past 25 years; started coaching Little League Baseball at Northshore in 1993. I also have coached Soccer, Basketball, Football, Baseball, Volleyball, and Tennis in the Snohomish area. I am super excited to be coaching at Bothell High School as I graduated from Bothell High School back in 1990.
We have started a conditioning program on Tuesdays and Thursdays (2:30-3:30)for any student who wants to get some light weights and conditioning in before the season starts. The conditioning workouts will be overseen by myself or one of the other coaches
Open Field workouts will be on Wednesdays starting 1/9. These workouts will be from 1:00-2:30 and are open to any and all students who are interested in trying out for softball. These are done by the kids -- coaches cannot do any sort of softball training with the kids until the first day of tryouts (2/25). A coach will be there to open the field and in attendance but we will not have anything to do with the on field workouts.
These workouts are not required but are recommended as they are a great way to get the kids together and to start playing together.
Registration has already started. Get registered at your earliest convenience so, if there are any issues early (need a physical or paperwork isn't filled out correctly), you can get them corrected before tryouts and your daughter won't miss tryouts. If you have registration questions please contact Nancy Murray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
