One of my favorite [tag]basic girls softball drills[/tag] is what we call “the zip drill”.  It is perfect for pre-game warm up.

When the players are done playing catch (warming up their arms) keep them where they are on the field. You will probably have about 6 on each side depending on your team size in right or left field depending on if your home or away.

Start the [tag]softball[/tag] on one end and “zip’ the ball back and forth working your way down the line to the other end then back again.

Once they get good at it, do it that way twice. Then have them at the starting end once they have thrown, run to the other end as the whole group rotates, so now the whole team is throwing and rotating to the opposite end.

Try it; it’s fun and your players will be warmed up and ready to play!
