Take a look at these submissions from Steve and David.  Great examples of [tag]softball coaching techniques[/tag] that can work with all age groups.Softball Coaching Techniques

From Steve…

Here is a [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] that can be used at all ages to get kids to drive through the ball. You need a tee, a toilet plunger and a half flat basketball or kickball. Place the plunger upside down in the tee andput flatened ball in place. Have the kids drive the ball straight ahead using their hips arms. Looks funny, works great.

From David…

For the little ones (8 and under).  Have the girls form a circle in their batting stance facing the center of the circle.  The girls should be far enough apart to safely swing their bats.  A [tag]coach[/tag] stands in the middle of the circle and pitches (wiffles) randomly around the circle. 
You can never do enough tie work.  But tie work can get boring.  We set-up the net about 30 feet away and have a competition (target practice) to see who can hit the most balls into the net.  This drill is great for developing line drive swings.  Multiple stations can be used depending on the number of players to avoid standing.
