Most coaches like to find new [tag]softball drills coaching tips[/tag]. Here is one sent in by Jennifer that works well!
One [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] we work on for [tag]throwing[/tag].
I put X’s with colored tape on the fence for each girl.
I set a ball down about 15 feet away. The girls have to take a running start, pick the ball up, throw it at the X, with the goal being to hit the X.
We usually make a game out of it and the first one to 10 wins a piece of bubblegum. This works on accurate throwing and continuous [tag]fielding[/tag].
I have some young girls who will field the ball great but by the time they get set and throw the ball the runner has made it to the bag.
Tip: For my 8U team we turn many [tag]drills[/tag] into games and use bubblegum as a reward. It is cheap and my girls will stay focused for 1 1/2 hours of practice.
