These softball drills are a couple of the tried and true ones. They have been around a long time because they WORK. Give them a try!
This is a softball skills and drills game that our team plays at the end of softball practice. It allows us to apply the fielding and hitting skills that we worked on during the earlier part of practice in a more practical game type situation.
This is a tip I have used for softball practice plans for years. One of the things that works for me is this. At every practice I have one player lead a series of stretches prior to the starting our softball drills.
While coaching youth softball, I found that my younger softball players, 4 & 5 year olds especially, had some trouble with the bases and knowing where to go. You need to go to the fundamentals before you start your basic softball drills!
I am involved with two softball teams at the 8U and 10U levels. I have found that the confidence in the glove work at this age is hard to get the girls to achieve so I came up with these softball fielding drills by accident.
