Here are a couple of softball coaching techniques that I have used successfully with 8U softball players. These are not earth shattering but they work well and address common problems that we as coaches encounter with most younger players.
These drills for girls softball work on the simple task of underhanding the ball to a base for a force-out. The fielding of the ball isn’t what we’re working on here, but the players need to work on the transition between fielding and the throw.
This is just one of the softball throwing drills that works well with 8U players. I call it the snap and pop drill. I do this to help the kids field the softball, make a quick accurate throw, and move quickly out of the way of play with “as it is called snap and pop”.
