If you’re [tag]coaching youth softball[/tag], you’re constantly trying to come up with fresh ideas for [tag]softball practice[/tag]. This is a [tag]softball drill[/tag] I like to use to work on soft hands and footwork.
Have two girls stand across from each other, 3-5 feet. This can be done bare-handed or with paddle gloves.
One player starts with the [tag]softball[/tag] and rolls it to her partner who fields it with soft hands and then rolls it back to the player that started the softball drill. The whole time they are rolling the ball to each other they are shuffling their feet side to side and keeping their bodies in front of the ball. The girls also need to keep their butts down.
This drill helps teach soft hands and getting front of the ball.
