If you’re [tag]coaching girls softball[/tag], try this [tag]softball drill[/tag] I call “Find the Ball“. This drill promotes communication skills, footwork, fielding and catching the ball.
- Line up the entire team either around the infield or in a straight line down a foul line.
- Each player counts off and remembers that number.
- The team then turns their back to the [tag]softball coach[/tag] and when their number is called quickly turns around and has to find the ball either on the ground or as a pop fly.
- After fielding the [tag]softball[/tag], turns back around and the drill continues.
You can get creative with two softballs or calling two numbers with just one ball. Makes a very nice end of practice competition. Miss the ball and you are out.
