This is one of my [tag]softball coaching tips[/tag] that helps to jump start a new team.   As a new team this drill helps your girls get faster and builds team spirit.   Have two coaches compete against each other!

We split the team into two–one at third and one at second.   Both coaches have three [tag]softball[/tag]s each, and stand on the pitcher’s mound.

The girls at third get a ground ball at third, throw it back, then go to short stop and get another, tag second and then throw to the coach. When they tag second the next player starts. The girls on second get a ball at second and between first and second, tag first and throw back to the coach.

The team to finish first gets to bat first. The coaches are of course competing, and the girls seem to get a kick out of beating the other coach.
