This drill will promote teamwork as well as endurance, and improved hand-eye coordination.
Have the girls partner up and line up at home plate with one softball per group.
The first group will face each other shuffling in a fielding position while rolling the ball to their partner(slightly ahead of their partner) as they travel down the first base line all the way to the foul pole. The second group will begin when the first group reaches first base.
After reaching the foul pole then that group will jog side-by-side along the fence, tossing the ball in the air to each other, all the way to the other foul pole.
After reaching the foul pole in left field then have the partners walk, one in front of the other, back to home plate while tossing the ball up to each other. The player in the back tosses it about 3ft above and in front of the player in front, while walking. Player in front then gently tosses it up and the player in the back catches it until the the partners make it back to home plate.
After the entire team makes it around once, challenge the groups to speed up and when the ball is dropped or another group passes them then the group sits where they are and that group is out.
Winning group sits out of 10 push-ups, running, or sit-ups.
This drill will provide base runners with more experience and practice in reading the trajectory of the pitch and eliminate hesitation in a game.
Have a few runners at each base, with a pitcher and catcher in position.
The pitcher will make a pitch and the runners will take their lead and then make the decision to whether the pitch is in the dirt or is a passed ball and steal or stay.
The coach will be standing by watching and if a runner hesitates on their decision then he/she will have to run out to the outfield, touch the fence and then proceed to the next base.
Each pitch the runner will go to the end of the line at the next base so that the players are constantly rotating.
When runners become more confident and are predicting the pitch more accurately have the coach, on passed balls and pitches in the dirt, yell different ways to slide into the next base(head first, hook slide, pop-up).
