Coming up with new ideas for young girls softball drills can sometimes be a challenge. Here are a couple of softball drills that were sent to me recently. They work well, give them a try!
From Coach C…
Softball Throwing Drill–
I line the girls up in 2 or 3 lines of 6 or 7. (Long space in between each person, so they can get a good throw)
First in line faces the other 6.
First person throws the softball to the second, who pivots and throws to the next person.
Each catcher pivots and turns to throw to the next, until the ball reaches the last person.
The last person runs to the front of the line and starts the softball drill again.
I usually do this twice.
We play a little softball game with our girls. The 3 coaches vs. the 12 girls.
They really learn that it’s more important to have good softball skills rather than big numbers. Plus they let their guard down & pull together to beat the softball coaches. Both ways we are teaching them & everybody has fun.
