Room 8 and Softball

Softball with Room 8 and Counties Manukau Coaches

When we have softball training, in the morning, we learnt how to point step and throw. We played scatter ball and we learnt how to bat and how to catch.
My favourite part was everything!   By Holden

The Room 8 crew.

We had softball training with the Counties Manukau Coaches for four Fridays. They taught us how to catch the ball in the hall with the waffle and then they taught us how to do monkey dail and butterfly’s in the sky. They taught us that when we bat our knuckles must in line and when we swing we have to squish the bug to give us more power to hit the ball. During the last week we played a game and then we said thank you. My favorite bit was everything that we did.  By Ryvierah.

When we had softball training with the counties Manukau people they taught us how to catch the ball in the hall with the waffle ball. They also taught us how to do butterflies in the sky and monkey dial. We also had to do some pitching with the gloves then the next week we had a warm up game of octopus and scatter ball. We had a tee and we had turns at fielding and batting then we had another game where we had to pass it to someone and you had to remember the person that you threw it to and the person that gave the ball to you. On our last game we had two teams. The fielding people were with Coach Jordan and the batting team was with the other coach. First I was on the batting team I got a home run. Then we swapped over and I was on the fielding with Coach Jordan. Then we swapped over again then after we finished we took some pictures and we said “SOFTBALL IS FUN” my favorite part was everything.  BY Anjali
