Special thanks to Maribel for sending this one in. If you’re searching for fresh ideas for [tag]softball throwing drills[/tag], you MUST try this out!
This is a fun [tag]softball[/tag] [tag]practice[/tag] game to break from routine…I call it Turbo Ball.
Divide your team into two teams.
You will need a softball, a field, a bucket and about five cones.
The only set up will be to put the bucket on top of home plate and the cones to mark your boundary line(gray area for a bunt).
The purpose of this [tag]drill[/tag] is to make a shot into the bucket without stepping into the gray area. The team with the most buckets wins. The fun part and the workout is this–the [tag]coach[/tag] [tag]throws[/tag] or hits the ball anywhere fair on the field and the players have to retrieve it, throw and [tag]catch[/tag] to their teammates to eventually get as close to the boundary line to take a shot.
I give them a two step rule so they get rid of the ball. If the team drops the pass/throw or makes a bad throw, its a turnover. This game becomes competitive, good cardio, and works on throws/catch. Try it!
