I’ve gotten a whole bunch of requests for drills for girls softball over the past few days. Here’s an idea that Ty sent to me and works well with your youth teams.
Maybe you’ve already seen this softball drill – throwing accuracy drill
Line all the kids up on the pitching mound.
Put a tee with a ball on it on home plate.
Give the kids 3 or 4 chances (depending on amount of kids) to hit the ball off the tee with another ball. Even if they hit the ball holder on the tee or the tee stand, it shows accuracy and should be rewarded. Kids standing in line should watch and pay attention. Kids that don’t pay attention will lose one of there chances to hit the ball.
Give a prize next practice @ water break for those kids that hit the ball off the tee. Like a Gatorade or a new baseball or anything you desire. A note pad is handy for keeping track of those kids that lose turns and who hit the ball off the tee. Younger players move up closer to home plate if needed.
Kids love to win things!
