I'm sending out a call for some help setting up drills for my 15-16 year
old girls fast-pitch team. This is a house league team and therefore you
have a wide variety of skills and playing experience.
We had our first practice last night, and I've discovered a couple of
problems that I need some drills for.
1. 2 of the girls throw like girls. (I know this sounds strange, but for
those of you that play and coach, you know what I mean.) They have that
high release point to their throw and the ball goes in a slow, high arc.
I need some drills to get them throwing through the ball so it goes
straighter and with more strength.
2. I've got 2 girls with low self-esteem. (I know, ask a shrink!) 1 has
a great glove and an even better arm. She is a solidly built girl and I
think that's a lot of the problem. I want to get through to her that
she's got the ability. We need to get her attitude upgraded. The other
girl is an average player that with the appropriate attention, could turn
into a good player. Neither of these players seems to be able to get the
hang of blocking a ground ball with their body. (You know, get one knee
down on the ground with the leg almost touching the back of the other leg.)
We haven't even seen them with a bat in their hands yet.
If anyone has any other ideas about good team drills, I'd love to hear
Thanks in advance.
