Denise sent this one to me last week. A great example for [tag]coaching girls softball[/tag] that nets great improvement!
Here is another [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] that my girls like and is competitive.
Divide your group into 3 even teams.
One group at home plate, one group between 1st base and the right field pole and the third group between 3rd base and the left field pole.
Coach picks up a ball and hits it to the outfield. That signals the girl at home plate to start running the bases while the first two girls in the outfield take off to pick up the ball that has been hit by the [tag]coach[/tag].
The first girl who reaches the ball picks it up so the other girls can touch the ball. (You can not move if you get the ball first.) As soon as both girls have touch the ball, the girl on the bases gets a point for every base that she touches.
Competitive and if you have more coaches, they can pick a team to hit too.
