As coaches, we need a certain number of products to run an effective practice. The Bownet net options can definitely help you this season…just like it helped me!
Just head to a travel baseball or softball tournament and you will see them (or their competitors) popped-up all over the place!
But BowNet has much more than baseball nets. If you coach any sport that requires a net or goal, they have something for you! From lacrosse & soccer goals, to volleyball & softball nets, the BowNet company offers a lot!
So what makes the bownet options so special?
First, let me tell you how I got hooked on this product. I was “turned on” to the bownet during our 2016 fastpitch softball season.
I saw them frequently, but I had purchased too many “pop-up” nets in the past that I didn't work. So I stayed away.
Then, when playing an away game, the opposing coach kindly offered to allow us to use theirs. Two of my players quickly responded “Coach we can set it up for you. We use these with our travel team all the time.”
And “BOOM” 2 minutes later there it was. Two sturdy sock-nets that allowed my players to go through a productive pre-game hitting routine at someone else’s field.
This was MUCH better than what we were doing prior. Which was, in a nutshell, nearly killing each other doing “live” soft-toss hitting to the outfield.
Just imagine 10 girls spread out in the outfield looking like they are playing dodge ball with teammates hitting softballs at them. Yes, I’m embarrassed to admit it but that is what we did for away games. FOR YEARS.
OK, we were a lot safer about it then that. But it wasn’t good.
Below is a short video highlighting the newest BowNet option, the Big-Mouth X! This is a 7x7 sized net, but they have a few other sizes available as well.
And again, they have options for other sports as well.
So needless to say, after my introduction to the bownet big-mouth product I quickly used the budget money I had left and purchased 2 of them.
So don’t come to our away games to watch pre-game dodge-ball…we don’t play it anymore…sorry.
Update: At the time that I originally wrote this article, we had mainly used the bownet for pre-game hitting. We are now a few weeks into our fall season, and use these nearly every day.
If you want to do some pre-game drills, (especially at a tournament or an away game), then these are awesome!
Need to isolate skills for your players? Then these are great!
Lastly, if your daughter or son wants to work on their game at home…the BowNet net options will be perfect!
Bownet nets have multiple uses and I highly recommend them for your program!
