One of the areas that coaches request help with are softball practice ideas for teams with new and experienced players. Read below for a great suggestion on this topic:
I coach a JV softball team. We only have 10 players, of which half have nearly no experience of playing before. One thing I learned right away, is that it’s impossible to get all of them the instruction they need in our 2 hour softball practice session.
I therefore assigned each player a partner for warm-ups and simple two person softball drills. I paired each experienced player with an inexperienced player. I have found that this helps the progression with the less experienced player as they get a chance to work with a better player.
The better players have actually helped mentor the lessor players by offering basic tips and help to their partners. I think this builds character in the the better players, and it also allows the lessor player to improve without really having to be coached.
