Helps pitcher develop a strong wrist snap.

Drill Setup

  • Pitcher stands with a ball and glove.

muscle drill for softball pitching

How it Works

  1. Pitcher starts with arm up in the air forming a 90 degree angle, like she is flexing her biceps muscle.
  2. Wrist is cocked so ball is pointed toward the sky.
  3. She then drops her arm so the elbow goes into waist and she executes a wrist snap sending the ball into her glove.
  4. Complete 3 sets of 10-15 wrist snap.

Coaching Tips

  • Pitcher should not be pausing at the waist. She should bring her arm down and execute the wrist snap in one fluid motion.
  • Wrist stays cocked until hand brushes hip, then the wrist is snapped.
