This simple [tag]softball drill[/tag] provides the players some infield practice, fly ball practice, relay practice, throwing practice and leadership practice for your catcher. Try these [tag]softball practice ideas[/tag] and see immediate results.

Have one [tag]softball coach[/tag] line up on the base line between home and first.  A second coach lines up on the base line between home and third.

Half the players line up (behind each other) at 2nd base.   Half the players line up (behind each other) at short stop.

The coach between home and first hits grounders to the kids at short and the coach between home and third hits grounders to the kids at second base.  The kids field and throw to a receiver by the coach who hit them the ball.  This can either be a player (catcher) or another coach.  Make sure to hit different types of grounders to challenge the kids.  All hard or all soft grounders are not teaching them as much.

The key is to move quickly (obviously to avoid boredom and to get as many reps as possible for each player).  As soon as the [tag]softball[/tag] is thrown that player must rotate quickly out of the action and go to the back of the line because the coach should be just about ready to hit to the next player.   This drill should last for 5-7 minutes.
