I receive many requests for [tag]free softball drills[/tag] from coaches around the world. I’ve included a [tag]softball drill[/tag] and a [tag]softball[/tag] coaching tip below that are quick to implement and the rewards on improved skills make them special. Give them a try!
Expect Anything Drill-–have girls form a line about 30 or 40 feet from a [tag]softball coach[/tag]. Instruct them to sprint (one at a time) towards the coach and the coach is to throw anything at them as they approach (line drive, pop up, ground ball, etc.).
A good softball coaching tip that sometimes goes overlooked–have the baserunners leave late from third base (when the softball is halfway to home plate) for three reasons:
#1) so she never gets called out at third for leaving early;
#2) so she doesn’t get picked off at third;
#3) so if there is contact, the baserunner doesn’t have to lead, stop, gather momentum and head home. She just sees that the ball is down, and advances to score.
