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."

Video Analysis

What is Video Analysis

Bring your softball game to the next level through the use of video analysis. One of the exciting features that we're able to bring you via the use of your video camera and the web - is Video Analysis.

Video analysis is a procedure in which a videotaped softball skill is analyzed using a frame-by-frame inspection of the footage. Dartfish is the world's best software program which assists in the analysis by allowing us to:

  • Highlight key points of interest by selecting and noting key moments within the skill
  • Add audio comments, text and drawings to selected key positions
  • Play reference video with key positions and notations and compare with other videos
  • Synchronize two different videos to play together
  • Publish videos, key positions, drawings, annotations and voiceover
  • Plus lots more...

How it Works

Softball Excellence offers you two different types of video analysis; we'll either analyze your video clip for you, or offer you the opportunity to purchase the best video analysis software available on the planet - Dartfish software - and let you do your own video analysis.

We Analyze Your Video
Through our partnership with Dartfish video analysis software you'll be able to email a video clip of your pitcher, or hitter, or fielder (or softball player doing any softball skill) directly to Softball Excellence. Cindy will analyze that skill and return the clip to you in a published detailed analysis format called a Mediabook.

Softball Trail

We'll even help you figure out how to do it if you want Cindy to analyze one of your players and don't have a clue how to do it. If you are interested in having Softball Excellence analyze your player video then just order our Video Anlaysis Service and if you have question you can contact us.
