Take a look at these submissions from George and from Gaylene. Two great examples of [tag]free softball drills[/tag] that can work with all age groups.
We have a [tag]softball drill[/tag] we really like; it’s a 1234 drill.
We get everyone in a line and 1 girl at a time comes out. Then the [tag]softball[/tag] coach hits the girl a ground ball, followed by a line drive. Next she starts running either way and gets another line drive hit at her but she is moving now. After she catches and throws that one back she takes off running and we hit her a catchable fly ball.
This drill has improved both our infielders and outfielders quickness to balls and their ability to catch balls moving and get planted to make good throws back in.
As a [tag]softball coach[/tag] for 12 unders in California I love to reward the hard work with a field trip to a college game so the girls can see where softball can take them if they are willing to work hard and put in the time.
