Kathy wrote to me and suggested these 16U softball drills. These are simple softball coaching drills that will pay huge dividends with your team.
I attach small hula hoops to a fence and have two cones, 15 and 25 feet away from them. 1) There are 5 balls placed at each cone. The girls charge the ball and throw at the hoop target.
2) Each girl is tossed 5 balls at each cone from forward position and a right angle position.
They must retrieve the ball then make the throw to the target.
This is great group work when working with stations.
I attach a tire to the fence (with bungee cords). I spray paint a white line at top, middle and bottom of the zone. Each girl practices swinging and striking the marks as hard as she can. This builds lower arm strength and helps with follow through after hitting a ball. (Any tire place will give you a used tire free.)
