Special thanks to Jim for sending this one in. If you’ve every struggled with coming up with new [tag]softball drills[/tag], you MUST try this out!
We call this [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] “BURN YOUR BUDDY”
Divide your team into two (2) smaller teams. Teams with 4 to 20. Set them up across from each other approx. 60-70ft. apart. You can use cones to mark a sideline boundary. Girls throw short hops to each other trying to get the ball past their opp. We do this drill at the end of every [tag]practice[/tag], 2 out of 3 losers pick up all equipment. The girls love it.
Rules of play:
Ball must [tag]shorthop[/tag] at least once before predetermined line
Ball caught in the air – thrower is out
Ball getting past all defenders – Player who misplays ball is out
Ball thrown out of bounds – dead ball nobody out
If more than one player misplays ball team decides who is out
Can even be done indoors
