Our fielding philosophy here at Rijo Athletics Softball is very similar to what we do with hitting. You should always feel comfortable and confident in what you are doing first. We don’t clone you to have to do certain things certain ways. There is more than one way to field a ground ball! What we do is try to put you into the best positions possible to be able to field the ball correctly.

To be the best fielder you can be, you need to have the quickest hands and feet possible, which will, in turn, enable you to be more athletic and more of a “stand out” on the field. You must also create some leadership qualities in being vocal and knowing and communicating what to do before it happens. These attributes in a player are always looked at and graded by professional scouts and college recruiters.
