Communication is key

Softball teams proves how communication changes the game

Softball is a sport that provides not only sports skills but life skills. Softball teaches teamwork, leadership and dedication. These are skills that can be used later on in
life. All sports may provide these abilities but softball is different. Softball is like a body. If the brain doesn’t work, the rest of the body won’t either. Just like if each player doesn’t
do their job, they won’t win. Each person is responsible for playing their position andkeeping their heads in the game at all times.

“Softball has taught me time management, communication skills and teamwork, which is a very important part in playing softball in order to have a successful game,” Addison Goodin (10) said.

These skills all play an effect on a game because during the game, the team needs to communicate on the field to let everyone playing know what is going on at all times. And they have to work together to get the win. Such as telling each other where the ball is, how many outs there are, what bases are occupied and what signs are being called. Steele High School Softball players struggled to communicate with each other, causing people not to know what to do in certain situations. This caused their season to start out pretty rough with a couple of losses.

“I think we have gained a lot more trust in each other on the field and are able to trust that the communication will be relayed sufficiently and well enough to be listened to,” Dilan Geeder (9) said.

The team’s communication gradually got better throughout the season as they found their trust in one another. Applying all of their strengths and skills during the game, causing better game play and making it easier to rely on each other. Steele Softball managed to turn their season around and find their love for the game, resulting in winning multiple games in a row.
