We use a drill we call Red Rover. It teaches them to work as a team and the importance of backing each other up. It’s a lot of fun and the girls love it.
Red Rover Drill
Split the team into 2 equally skilled teams.
Set out 2 cones 15-20′ apart and then 2 more cones 40′ away, again 15-20′ apart.
Spread the girls out between the cones evenly.
Now you have 2 lines of players in between the cones facing one another.
Give 1 team a ball and they begin throwing grounders at the opposing team.
If a grounder gets through the opposing line then the girl who missed the ball is out.
If 2 or more girls go for and miss the ball then the throwing team chooses which one is out!
We play until 1 team is eliminated. The losing team usually has to run (added incentive to try harder).
