This is one of the [tag]softball practice drills[/tag] that works as a conditioning drill as well as honing your players’ [tag]softball[/tag] skills. This [tag]softball drill[/tag] is really fast and gives the girls an opportunity to move like they would in a game situation.
Divide your softball team into two groups. Put half of them at short stop and the other half at second base. You will need four [tag]softball coach[/tag]es, adults, older siblings, etc to make this work.
Put 2 coaches or assistants at first and third base. You will take the other two adults and put them near the pitcher.
The adults then start throwing grounders to the girls with just enough time for them to field and throw before another ball comes for them. The balls do not go to the same place, leaving the kids to think on their feet and move quickly.
After three balls, the next girl goes up and the fielder goes to the back of the line. The kids at 2nd will throw to 3rd and the girls at short will throw to 1st. The kids love it!
