Softball Excellence DUGOUT

What People are Saying:
"If you coach softball you should take advantage of the knowledge Cindy Bristow is offering through Softball Excellence. I have been involved in fast pitch softball for more than 35 years as a player and coach, and she is the most knowledgeable coach I have worked with. Cindy's basic approach to teaching sound fundamentals, without a bunch of gimmicks, will greatly assist in the preparation of your players to compete physically and mentally. The material she produces is direct, to the point, and easy to absorb."

"There is a ton of information out there, but I couldn't really tell what was good and what was just selling. Someone recommended softball excellence as a sight for information. I checked it out and have done all the eclinics and bought several hard back books and drills. You are very good at explaining this wonderful sport. You put it all in common sense terms and use video and pictures very well. - Thanks again!"
- Dee Swartz
Fastpitch Softball mom/coach

"I just wanted to write and thank you for the outstanding clinic last weekend. Ive attended many coaching clinics with the likes of Bob Knight, Coach K., Rick Pitino, Doug Collins, Larry Brown, and I have to say that your thoughts and philosophies were every bit as insightful, valuable, and entertaining as were these coaching legends. Thank you also for all that you do and have done for the great game of fastpitch softball and our athletes."

Zip Ball

Zip Ball™ Origin

Cindy Bristow was searching for something to help her students (College to 8U) with spin, hand-eye coordination, tracking and a number of other skills. She tried every product she could get her hands on and was not happy with any of them – the weights were not quite right, the size was not quit right or the construction and materials were not right, etc. So, Softball Excellence had our own product engineered exactly to Cindy’s specifications, specifically for softball/baseball skill training.

After months of refining and trials we are confident we have nailed it – the Zip Ball™ is an awesome training tool!

Georgetown University loves the Zip Ball

Just a quick update on the Zip Ball. I LOVE IT!!!! We have used them with our catchers and infielders - really working on getting the ball out of the glove faster. Also incorporated them into our infield and outfield daily ball drills...and combined them with the little gator gloves as well. My favorite use is obviously for pitching! The Zip Ball really lets the girls focus on involving their fingers in all the snaps. As much as I talk about it I was never sure they were understanding or feeling it. With the Zip Ball ball they can. It's almost as if a light bulb went off! They are perfect. Everyone needs to have some!!!!

University of Wisconsin EAU Clair loves the Zip Ball

Our pitchers are using them for spin work, and our position players use them with soft hands for fielding and throwing. Our catchers also use them with soft hands to work on quick hands in the transfer and our hitters do tee hitting with Zip Balls as well. They are VERY beneficial for us are probably the single tool that we are most excited about this year!

Cedarbur High School in Cedarburg Wisconsin loves the Zip Ball

We used the zip ball this last weekend during a pitching clinic and for the first time some of the girls/ladies were able to really fell and actually see the rotation of the ball. Just using it for the pitching clinic was well worth it and so far has been one the best teaching aids I have used.
