Take a look at these submissions that I received from two of my subscribers. Great examples of [tag]softball throwing drills[/tag] that work with all age groups.
A fielding [tag]softball practice[/tag] idea is to line up your players in a zig-zag line. Put a bucket of [tag]softball[/tag]s at one end and an empty bucket at the other end. The [tag]softball coach[/tag] rolls a ball to the first player in the line and then that player picks it up and rolls it to the next player in line and so on. This is done without gloves to teach using both hands when fielding. When the last player fields the ball, he puts the ball in the empty bucket.
The coach continually rolls balls to the first player to keep the fielding going. By the end, each player has fielded several ground balls!
I like the cut-off [tag]softball drills[/tag] that are timed for accuracy and speed. You line up your fields infields and outfielders as well. You have five in each line and then you begin the drill. They have to complete the entire drill throwing GOOD chest passes to each other 3 without dropping the ball or throwing a bad throw in anc set amount of time.
This teaches them teamwork, accuracy, and speed all in one. They also get to learn how each other throws and react under pressure.
