It can be difficult coming up with fresh ideas for [tag]drills for girls softball[/tag].Â Try these fun [tag]softball drills[/tag] with your team.Â These are fast paced, effective and they will become team favorites.
This softball drill start off with 3rd baseman & 1st baseman. Hit a grounder to 3rd who throws to 1st, 3rd then moves to short. Grounder hit there & throws to 1st, move 2nd grounder, hit & thrown to 1st, move to 1st & original 1st baseman moves to end of line and original 3rd base moves to 1st.Â The kids enjoy this [tag]softball[/tag] drill because it moves quickly.
Player stands in front of the [tag]softball coach[/tag] with eyes closed. Coach then calls out left or right and then throws a pop fly just out of playerâ€™s reach or â€œwith lots of hustleâ€ barely within players reach. Player then opens her eyes and runs to the softballâ€”with glove tucked until she reaches or almost reaches the ball. This seems to develop hand-eye coordination again as well as teaches player to run with mitt tucked until getting to the ball.
These are rubber balls that are NOT round. I like to throw ground balls to my players using these. They never know where the ball is going to bounce and it forces them to stay in a good athletic position on the balls of their feet. It also forces them to watch the ground ball entirely into their mitt.
