Take a look at these [tag]softball practice drills[/tag]. The Loop Drill is a great [tag]softball drill[/tag] that can work with all age groups. You’ll see the improvements in your team’s fielding skills.
Loop Drill—Line up players in foul territory at 3B. One girl is up in fielding position even with 3B. A first baseman is needed as is a catcher. The [tag]softball coach[/tag] begins by placing a softball in the pitcher’s circle.
Then, the coach hits a ground ball to the player at 3B. The player is to field the [tag]softball[/tag] and throw to 1B. Then, she is to retrieve and throw the ball from the circle to 1B. She is then to make a loop around 2B and be in fielding position at SS when the coach hits another ground ball.
The fielder fields the softball and throws home and the catcher then rolls a ball to the charging fielder who fields and throws to 1B for the last time to end her round. The next player steps up in fielding position at 3B, the previous fielder goes to play 1B, and the previous first baseman goes to catcher.
This cycle continues until all have had a chance to go through the drill.
