This video provides a resource for drills to improve all areas of infield play. You will be exposed to philosophies on maximizing player touches and how to safely warm-up arms for quality play.
21 of the most respected coaches in softball explain and demonstrate 45 different infield drills. You'll see drills for throwing, pre-pitch movement, proper fielding position, fielding various types of hits, completing double plays and covering bases.
Infielders must be able to transfer and throw the ball quickly to get out the fastest runners. The average runner in college softball will run home to first in about three seconds, but slappers can get there as fast as 2.6 seconds. This video shows how to throw from different arm angles and throw on the run to get the ball to first base quickly.
Players with good fundamentals make fewer mistakes. Perfect your players' fielding positions on ground balls to ensure they can make plays with the pressure on! In one particularly fun drill, the Fielding Footwork drill (‘Stopping rolling balls with footwork'), 4x WCWS National Championhip coach Patty Gasso has her fielders use their footwork to stop balls!
Double Plays and Covering Bases
A defense can bail a pitcher out of a jam by getting two outs on one batted ball. You'll learn how to turn a double-play from any position on the field. Also, see how to teach your players the proper positioning for force outs and tags, pick-offs, and steals.
