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.Coaching Girls Softball
