During off season our [tag]softball practice plans[/tag] focus on conditioning drills. These are just two that are quick and effective. We especially like the ones that can be moved indoors when weather is not in our favor.
[tag]Softball Throwing Drill[/tag]–The purpose of this [tag]softball drill[/tag] is for conditioning and to evaluate throwing accuracy while being tired.
- You will need about 25 balls.
- Set five up at each infield position.
- Spread them out about 5 feet apart going towards the out field.
- Next have each team member go through each position throwing the [tag]softball[/tag] back to home plate.
The end result you will have a better conditioned team and each player will know how accurate they can throw the ball while being tired.
NOTE- You can set up 5 balls at shortstop as well in the same manner.
When we are conditioning inside I love to use safety cones. Set them up differently and create short courses for players to run. You can let your players set up a course too. Break the players up into teams and time them; best team time wins.
