Team Sliding – Base Running Drill

Fastpitch Drills

This drill provides fun competition while learning and gaining confidence with sliding

Divide the team into groups of four.

Each group of four should spread out and form a square (about twenty by twenty feet) marked on the field, with a “base” in each corner and a player on each base.

At the whistle, the player at home takes off for first, sliding in. When she touches the bag, the player standing there at first takes off for second.

When she slides in, the runner on second base takes off toward third.

This continues around the horn until the player who began at home gets back home again. Whichever team does this the fastest is the winner.

If you do not have enough room to have all your groups going at once, then you can use a stopwatch to see which group is the fastest.
