I received this softball drill from Melinda in Maine. She has had great success using these softball tips for beginners with her team of various ages and skill levels.
I coach softball in a very small town Maine. The team that I have has 3rd through 7th graders on it!! It is hard to figure out what to do that will involve all the kids.
One softball drill that we do is softball knockout.
The girls stand in a line out towards third base. We have the first two players with bats. I pitch, and I use the term loosely here! The goal for the player is to hit the ball no matter where it is. You have one shot to hit it. If you hit it, you hand your bat to the next player in line w/o one and go to the back of the line. If you miss you are out in the field shagging balls. The last one still making contact is the winner.
It is quick and really makes the girls focus on the ball and to just make contact. It is one of those games too where your skill level is a minimum factor. My young girls were the last ones standing by the end. Fun softball warm-up to get kids focused!
