Now that we have the first few weeks of practice with the Badger Softball team completed, we're focusing in on opening week.

We've spent a lot of time on our swings this winter, incorporating vision training, hand and wrist strengthening drills, and video analysis. We've challenged our hitters to be students of the game, understanding the forces that create whip and generate power. Beyond creating a strong fundamental base to our swings and being efficient, our staff has spent a lot of time addressing our mental approach in and out of the box.

Focus and confidence

In the team's first blog entry of the season, softball head coach Yvette Healy writes about what the Badgers are doing to make themselves better on and off the field. Check back to UWBadgers.com for regular updates throughout the season.

Happy New Year! The Wisconsin Women's softball team is working hard, practicing for our 2011 season. The Badgers came back from break happy, healthy, strong and motivated.

Many of our coaches and student-athletes made the trek to Pasadena, Calif., cheering the Badger football team on in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. Seeing so many of our athletic teams make history right in front of our eyes is always inspiring. Football, basketball and hockey have all posted huge wins over nationally-ranked teams this season, and softball can't wait to carry on the winning tradition.
